The Strokes announce US tour

The band will kick off in New York

The Strokes have announced details of their upcoming US tour.

The band will kick off the trek with a hometown show at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom on March 3.

The group will then hit the road for five weeks before wrapping up at Minneapolis Orpheum Theatre on April 11.

Guitarist Albert Hammond Jr has also hinted that late April could see The Strokes may be playing the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Indio, California.

He told Billboard: “I loved it when we played it last time (in 2002). Absolutely loved it. It was one of the coolest festivals. No offence to American festivals, but it felt very European. It’s outdoors but it’s warm, which is so important.”

The Strokes’ US tour will be in support of their third album ‘First Impressions Of Earth’.

Before they head off Stateside, the band will be playing a UK tour which kicks off tonight at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire (January 24).
