The New Yorkers took to a makeshift stage at the Natural History Museum, London, to play a 20 song set facing the fossilised remains of a giant Diplodocus.

The Strokes played:

‘The End Has No End’
‘Red Light’
‘The Modern Age’
‘Heart In A Cage’
‘Alone Together’
‘Is This It’
‘Ize Of The World’
‘You Only Live Once’
‘Last Nite’
‘Hard To Explain’
‘Ask Me Anything’
‘Vision Of Division’
‘New York City Cops’
‘Take It Or Leave It’

The gig took place as part of the T Mobile Street Gigs series, and those in the audience included Dirty Pretty Things, Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson, Little Britain's David Walliams and actress Drew Barrymore.

The Strokes now head to Oxegen and T In The Park festivals, where they play this weekend (July 8-9). See NME.COM for full coverage from both festival sites.
