Well the official Strokes Facebook page did announce the show, not sure if that qualifies as an official band announcement or not.

@I Can’t Win — I didn’t see that before posting. Thanks for the heads up.

No problem, pretty excited about this one as it’s the closest show to home so far and thus the best chance I’ll be able to attend. Also the event on the venues website lists Albert as the opener which seems kind of strange but would be very cool!

I think Albert is opening up for TS at this show, on the venue website it says “The Strokes w/ Albert Hammond Jr. “

I think Vegas has had the most headlining shows by The Strokes since 2010?

I know someone mentioned the clip earlier but I’m watching Wilfred and he was wearing a Hawaiian shirt and said it made him look like one of The Strokes. Is it a coincidence that Julian wore one at Governor’s Ball or Is Wilfred psychic? I guess we’ll never know.

I hope they play a completely different set this time. Don’t get me wrong, the last two shows were great but it’d be a shame to only get 4 shows (so far) this year and have them all be the same set. Here are a few I’d like to hear, in case any Strokes read this site:
Tap Out
Meet Me In The Bathroom
The Modern Age
Alone, Together
Slow (or Fast) Animals
Soma
Trying Your Luck
Life Is Simple
Taken For A Fool
Ize Of The World
Electricityscape
Red Light
Chances

@Kev
I would love for them to do a professional recording for their fans – of the Vegas show. esp since I won’t be there lol. but srsly that would be GREAT.

also – I love your song suggestions – Out of them I esp would love to hear TMA, Soma, TYL, LISITM, Electricityscape, Red Light and Chances.
ESP Electricityscape.
AND HAWAII DEFINATELY HAWAII!!

and I was real surprsied they didnt’t play UCoD at the Colonial or at Gov Ball.

@Joseph A
lol to the Wilfred clip :)
also it was noted in an article about the Gov Ball that a lot of guys coincidentally showed up on Sunday in Hawaiian shirts. haha.
