The Strokes Arrive In Las Vegas, Prepare For First Show Supporting ‘Angles’

by Eric Van Dril · 121 comments

As two new songs from Angles leaked Wednesday, The Strokes were traveling to Las Vegas for their first show supporting Angles.

That show takes place on Saturday evening at the Cosmopolitan and, if you’re still interested in going, you can buy General Admission tickets here for $134.

If not, be sure to follow the band on various social media sites. Nikolai, Richard Priest, Albert, Ryan Gentles and The Strokes’ official Twitter have all posted Tweets about Vegas in the previous two days.

(Also, another cute picture of Julian’s son just hit the web.)

So, who’s going? Have you ever seen The Strokes live? Which song are you most excited to hear?

For everyone: Which songs do you think The Strokes will play? How many songs from the new record? How do you anticipate the new Angles tracks will sound in concert?

Expect video from Saturday’s concert to be posted on this page on Sunday morning. “I’m wearing a jacket full of meat…”

on twitter there were a couple new things that said it leaked. The new one on pirate bay i just checked out is only machu Pichu and taken for a fool, but it said “The Strokes – Angles”, that might of confused some people. I am downloading the link from here: No idea if it is legit or not, will see in 15 min or so.
