Strokes members to reunite for Bob Dylan tribute

Fab and Nikolai to play together this month

The Strokes' first release was via NME.com, when they gave away a free MP3 download of 'Last Nite' a week prior to physical release as part of 'The Modern Age EP' in 2001. NME went on to give the group's debut album 'Is This It' a 10 out of 10 review, and name it album of the year.
The Strokes' Fab Moretti and Nikolai Fraiture are set to reunite on stage in New York on Thursday (May 21) for a tribute concert to Bob Dylan.

The pair are part of a host of musicians set to play live at the Mercury Lounge venue for the Bob Dylan Birthday Bash event, which will also feature Jesse Malin, Adam Green and members of Fountains Of Wayne.

The gig will be the first time the two Strokes have shared a stage since 2006.

A message on Rollingstone.com from the event organisers declared that "rehearsals have been amazing".
