The Strokes' Albert Hammond Jr. and Nick Valensi team up on stage in Dublin

The guitarists collaborated on stage in Ireland this weekend (August 9)

The Strokes' Albert Hammond Jr and Nick Valensi covered Bob Dylan's 'Positively 4th Street' at Dylan Fest in Dublin on Friday night (August 9). See above for video footage of the performance now.

In the video, which was filmed at The Academy in the Irish capital, Albert Hammond Jr. performs a cover of Dylan song 'Don't Think Twice, It's Alright' on his own before being joined by Valensi for 'Positively 4th Street', which they both provided vocals on. Introducing his Strokes bandmate onto the stage, Hammond Jr says: "I want to bring Nick out, we're going to duet."

The guitarists appeared on a line-up celebrating the music of Bob Dylan, which also included Fran Healy of Travis, Bell X1’s Paul Noonan, Gemma Hayes, Boz Scaggs, Jape, Conor and Neil Adams from The Cast Of Cheers, Butch Walker and James Vincent McMorrow. All proceeds from the event went to benefit Sweet Relief and the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.

Meanwhile, it was recently announced that Nick Valensi is collaborating with Brody Dalle on her forthcoming solo record. The former frontwoman of The Distillers and Spinnerette has been recording her first solo album in California and recently posted a picture of Valensi on Instagram and thanked him for his playing, writing: "Thank you Nicky Valensi for the radass guitar".

The Strokes released their fifth album, 'Comedown Machine', in March.
