Watch: High-Quality Videos Of The Entire Strokes Gig At Brazil’s Planeta Terra Festival

by Eric Van Dril · 40 comments

The Strokes don’t have any additional gigs scheduled for the Angles tour, so savor these videos. It’s probably going to be a long time before we see them on stage again.

With that said, what a way to go out. They were — as the Brits and hipsters say — total class in Brazil Saturday evening.

hahah…. You’re so Rigth! I love the spelling of that!

It’s so good to see them having that much fun. They fucking rocked it!

Also, I’m ridiculously happy they’ve been playing Heart in a Cage again. Definitely one of my favorites!

I was there and they really seemed to be having fun! It was awesome.

Really loved Nikolai’s capes and jacket making him super diva, Jules’ hats and sunglasses for hiding, contrasting with his bright shoes, Albert’s super sexy tight t-shirts (yeah), Nick’s super musical hair and looseness, Fab being adorable just the way he is with his super smile and Ryan for his jokes and frankness on twitter.

But besides their look, I rediscovered by the latest gigs their awesome music and the atmosphere only them can create, they are certainly a great rock band, not as many we can find these days.

If they had any doubt about Angles and the consistancy of fans’ support, it should be dissipated by all the love they received from fans all the world during their tour. We love you so much guys…

I don’t know why I’m doing this summary, maybe I need it to accept that it’s all over for this album…sorry.
But as Jules says, I’ll shut up now, what’s coming up next ?

It doesn’t even seem that long ago that we were eagerly awaiting the 4th album Angles to be released after a five year wait and here we are again waiting for the next round. I must admit that I hate these lulls, but I’m happy we have all these great performances we can watch on youtube until they are back for the next round. Especially since I didn’t get a chance to see them on this tour. Anyway, here are a couple more airport videos. These ones are from Brazil and the fans were really cool.

heart in a cage gives me an orgasm of the ribs.

Awww, everyone’s getting warm and fuzzy on here 🙂 What a way to close out a tour!! It was fun hearing Fab talk- reminds me of “I went to 2nd grade with this man!”.

8 the modern age November 6, 2011 at 6:26 pm

Julian said “talk to your people” hahaha

9 Julie November 7, 2011 at 11:09 am

Eric what are you going to do with this site during the lull? I’m kind of used to getting a strokes fix now.

10 wolfman November 7, 2011 at 8:22 pm

we have the (hopefully) machu picchu video to look forward to.

11 get it right November 7, 2011 at 9:06 pm

third single should come. perfrmance on tv maybe. then again, taken for a fool came out without much lust so who knows.

12 heather November 7, 2011 at 9:33 pm

Vote for Jules! (NME Greatest Frontmen and Women)

13 Mateja November 7, 2011 at 9:49 pm

Can anyone recognize the people in this photo?

Jumping in the bed are: Gus Oberg – Fab Moretti? – Nikolai?

Julian with a cowl in the back? Nick? Ryan?

14 Mateja November 7, 2011 at 10:32 pm

About the end of the tour and the future..

The band is sounding better than ever, but i’m a little worried about Julian’s voice. Just check the Under Cover of Darkness @ Planeta Terra vid. His voice was more hoarse than ever, and it was only the second show after almost a month resting from touring. I mean, i’m not sure if he’s in conditiones to do a proper world tour like this..

Is there any way to treat his throat for improve his vocal performance?

15 H November 7, 2011 at 11:54 pm

Is the Angles tour really over? But,but.. it only came out this year, and they hardly played any songs from that album! They never even played my favorite song; Call Me Back.

Really miss listening to them play Vision of Division, I always fall back to the 2006 T in the Park performance. Most of all, I’m really gonna miss them tweet about the tours 🙁 who knows when new music is gonna come out. At least release Julian’s song already to tide us over.

16 H November 7, 2011 at 11:55 pm

@ heather I voted, but boy I had to click through a bunch of other nominees before finally reached Julian. Great shot of him though.

17 get it right November 8, 2011 at 2:02 am

@ mateja

its cold in NY, flu season, i doubt his voice i on the decline, i believe the contrary.

18 a lot November 8, 2011 at 2:38 am
19 melanie November 8, 2011 at 2:46 am

@heather i voted lots, thats an old poll from feburary. Good to see Jules back in the top 20 though!
@H have you seen the VOD performances from Eurockeennes 2005 and Fuji? (my favourites) Oh and you can vote for Jules by just clicking on his name, so you don’t have to bother with the others 🙂

20 H November 8, 2011 at 7:02 am

@melanie Thanks for recommending. Just finished watching the Eurockeennes festival; they played all my favorites including Red Light and Ize of the World- what a treat! I realised that Julian used to growl a lot, which probably isn’t very good for his voice, which is probably why they dropped those songs where he had to screech? I dunno, but his voice sounds a lot better now. Also those little ad-libbing he does nowadays is very endearing.

Funny story, my mum walked in when they were playing Heart in a Cage at Eurockeenes and she couldn’t understand what Jules was singing. I told her it was clear as day to my ears. Later they played Hawaii and it was the first I heard them play it live, and I was thinking ‘wth is he singing?’. Hah.

Definitely gonna watch the Fuji festival later.

I’m really hoping for the Machu Picchu video too! Does anyone think it will really be a single though? I’m wondering if he just released the lyrics b/c of the FIFA game. And we all still want that fucking song from him too. Ugh!

@melanie and @H, I love that T in the Park show & that Fuji show you’re talking about too! VOD & Electricityscape (from both shows, I must admit) are on my YouTube favorites. I wish they’d play both of those again.

His voice did sound hoarse in UCOD but I think he just screwed it up. He has an amazing range, but I think his voice is more suited for a lower-mid range (that beautiful dark croon doesn’t compare to anyone else). Sometimes he rocks the high notes & sometimes he misses them. He does force his voice a lot which honestly can hurt it, but I seriously doubt he’s in trouble- I think he just fucked up this time &, @get it right made a good point- the weather’s been cold. Like any vocalist, he should just drink some tea.

Also, I think it’s hilarious that he says “I’m into guys though” in the video above. Gotta love his sense of humor 🙂 I’m voting for Julian too. Too bad TS didn’t win the EMA category. Oh well.

Warren Fu tweeted “great writing sesh this evening… the seeds have been planted”

23 Alex November 8, 2011 at 11:35 am = Under Cover of Darkness on Rocksmith! That’s awesome!

24 Julie November 8, 2011 at 12:58 pm

wow! UCOD is apparently trending worldwide too. people are paying attention!

25 Savannah November 9, 2011 at 11:44 pm

Hey I found this behind the scenes on YouTube of Julian on Decible set!

i just hope there isn’t another 5 year hiatus before the strokes 5th album comes out. i don’t know that my little heart could take it 🙁

28 sunstroke_house November 10, 2011 at 6:06 am

they sound brilliant. great crowd too.

anyone got an audio download link?

29 Julie November 10, 2011 at 6:40 am

@sunstroke_house: google MP3 Rocket

Do people really think Machu Picchu will be a single?

30 sunstroke_house November 10, 2011 at 10:22 am

@ Julie: thank you!

as for MP being a single, i can’t see it. there just isn’t the love for 7’s like there used to be. hope i’m wrong though.

32 heather November 12, 2011 at 9:00 am

@melanie-I didn’t realize that was such an old poll. lol Sorry guys!
Anyway, here is a link to a new interview with Julian with MTV Brazil. 🙂

33 Carlos Beltran November 14, 2011 at 1:08 am

jajajajaj Someday Whatever Happened…

34 JJ November 15, 2011 at 3:24 am

Jesus Christ. Julian Casablancas still has a brilliant and legendary rock and roll voice. Especially in Under Control he’s really really amazing. He always nails that song. The live version of that song is better than the one on ROF

35 frank S. December 30, 2011 at 10:52 pm

Julian should take more care of his voice but he is still Awesomeee 😀
