What does Julian say at the end of YOLO? (32:00)

Lately that part has been like a confessionary to him!

2 Dillon July 3, 2011 at 12:36 pm

Wow! sounding fucking great and the setlist choices are making me so happy. I wish they had been playing these kind of sets all year but oh well. Maybe they just like europe better haha. And machu picchu isnt even one of my favorites from angles but its nice to see them playing it so well and people are loving it. Keep it up strokes!!!!

and maybe we could hear some of these soon i hope:
The end has no end
Between love and hate
Heart in a cage
Barely legal
Red light
12:51
Ize of the world

julian’s voice is always a mess when they play live…

4 heather July 3, 2011 at 3:02 pm

Trying Your Luck has always been one of my all time favorite Strokes songs so it’s great to see it back in the setlist. My favorite of the night.Also, the more I hear You’re So Right, the more I like it. It’s REALLY, really strong live.

5 Lol Halberto? July 3, 2011 at 4:08 pm

That’s shit. I think he is great live. One of the best live singers

6 Webs July 3, 2011 at 4:51 pm

kinda bored of the same set list… mix it up homies~

7 KEVIN July 3, 2011 at 5:32 pm

Fantastic show! Once again, I’m blown away that Julian Casablancas, lead singer of the best rock band in the world, has to ASK if he can change mics because his is cutting out. Unbelievable. Someone should’ve been running out there to change when it cut out the very first time!

8 Shayan July 3, 2011 at 5:55 pm

They all killed Trying Your Luck! Such a good live verison

9 heather July 3, 2011 at 6:05 pm

Oh, and Julian singing Under Control is just…I can’t even…it’s ridiculous! Goosebumps! *swoon!!!*

10 Liv July 3, 2011 at 9:50 pm

amazing show. good to see they are putting energy back into their performances. they havent had an amazing show like that since MSG. they were awesome and Julian was AMAZING. he sounded great. completely fantastic. why can’t they perform like this all the time? saved up their energy for europe i guess.

11 KEVIN July 3, 2011 at 10:16 pm

@Liv – Have you seen the Bonnaroo set? It’s the best Angles show so far in my opinion. If you haven’t seen it yet, go check it out!

12 james croker July 3, 2011 at 10:59 pm

he’s wearing glasses under his sunnies, i always thought his sunnies looked thick, flip ups hahaha

13 Beauvoir July 4, 2011 at 12:51 am

@James – me too haha.

Trying Your Luck gahhhh, they were fantastic. I used to cry while listening to this.

14 William July 4, 2011 at 2:08 am

Everytime Under Control is there it becomes so beautiful!

15 Killing the modern age July 4, 2011 at 5:03 am

Julian is really funny. I laughed so bad when he said “from Los Angelas, California”. I get pretty anoyed with Fab, Nick and Nikolai. They look so angry and bored. Only Alb knows how to behave. And of course Julian. But i’ve always seen him as the one and only. His vocals on TYL, NYCC, UC was… There is no words. :)

16 mateja July 4, 2011 at 7:11 am

according to the few vids in youtube roskilde and opener were wild! in opener julian ends jumping to the crowd like old times

17 Sam July 4, 2011 at 8:53 am

In all seriousness, is Julian drinking again? He can’t remember any lyrics and doesn’t know when to start singing? I mean, he wrote the damn songs and can’t even care to remember them. The end of a once great band.

18 DinkinFlicka July 4, 2011 at 8:55 am

Kinda getting bored of them playing the same thing again and again.

Also kinda sad that they haven’t play James with a G in a while :(

19 Julian Valensi July 4, 2011 at 9:10 am

“Kinda getting bored of them playing the same thing again and again”.

To be fair, they also played Meet Me In The Bathroom which they haven’t played in years. The songs they play live are the best in their catalogue.

20 Iasmine July 4, 2011 at 10:50 am

I. cannot. fucking. wait. This is amazing.

21 mariela July 4, 2011 at 11:53 am

hermosooooooooo q vengan a la argentina

22 candle wax July 4, 2011 at 12:10 pm

@ Kevin, i completely agree with you. that show proves they are still what everyone doubts

23 sin July 4, 2011 at 3:17 pm

that was a really awesome concert. julian seemed really into it. he was talking a lot!

24 Ben July 4, 2011 at 9:36 pm

I didn’t really see the big deal about the Riviera/Les Paul debate regarding Nick, but I think the difference in tone is REALLY apparent on Trying Your Luck. Regardless, I’m so stoked they’re branching out into songs outside their current comfort zone. I’ve always loved that one.

25 Liv July 5, 2011 at 8:50 am

@kevin, i was at Bonnaroo and MSG. Hove seemed more similar to MSG, which was an amazing night. Bonnaroo was awesome but the Hove crowd seemed to be more into the show than at Bonnaroo, which can make a huge difference. everyone at bonnaroo was boiling from the heat too.

26 lucky July 5, 2011 at 8:59 am

Liv you are so shit lucky ;)

27 MShvarts July 5, 2011 at 10:03 am

Despite Jules’ little mishap, Meet Me in the Bathroom was definitely the song I enjoyed the most from this set. Hope to hear it live some day too.

28 Ashley July 5, 2011 at 10:26 am

They MURDERED Trying Your Luck. Good Lord that was incredible.

29 L-G July 5, 2011 at 4:17 pm

Yea! Jules and Nick actually talked! (44:45)

30 lucky July 5, 2011 at 6:32 pm

But they look really like “fuck you bitch” when they talk :P
Anyway, I actually think it was fucking great when julian messed up MMITB. He is so funny and talented. Lovely kid :)

31 Wooooooow July 5, 2011 at 6:56 pm

Julian in trying your luck :OOOOOOO… no words. That was so beautifull.

32 Kev July 5, 2011 at 9:13 pm

Hahaha I Thought it was funny when they had to restart Meet me in the Bathroom…

33 woon July 6, 2011 at 5:16 am

im so pleased theyre mixing stuff up finaly
ize of the world for reading and leeds hopefully
so good to hear trying your luck after so long
and meet me in the bathroom a real treat, when was that last played? 2003???
12:51, between love and hate and end has no end need to be brought back at some point
but thats just my bias towards room on fire i suppose
razorblade would be great too, but finaly the boys seem to be hitting their stride, sure vocals arent always perfect but i just dont think the new songs are in the right key for him
WELCOME BACK BOYS

34 Iasmine July 6, 2011 at 8:04 am

@woon, I hope you’re right. For some reason, NME says they’re bringing 12:51 (to TITP). I wish that was true, Ize would be unreal. Praying for Ize at Benicassim, oh please please please
