The Strokes have been confirmed for Pearl Jam 20 Festival, which takes place Labor Day Weekend — September 3 and 4 — at Alpine Valley Music Theater in East Troy, Wisconsin.
The festival celebrates the 20th anniversary of Pearl Jam’s Ten album and The Strokes and Queens of the Stone Age have been announced as support for Pearl Jam. Tickets go on sale on June 4.
If you remember, QOTSA, The Strokes and Pearl Jam worked on a Marvin Gaye cover back in 2006. Will we see this again?
This is the first Strokes show to be announced in the Midwest and I could not be more excited. The lineup includes: Pearl Jam, The Strokes, Queens Of The Stone Age, Mudhoney, John Doe, Joseph Arthur, Glen Hansard, and Liam Finn. I’ve only heard of four of those bands, but who cares? I can FINALLY see The Strokes play tracks from Angles without traveling half way around the country.
I think we might have to have a TSN tailgate beforehand. How does that sound to all of those planning on attending the festival?
