New York band have teased an announcement on their official Facebook page
The Strokes have teased an announcement about a potential show in London on their Facebook page.
On Sunday (March 1) the New Yorkers posted an aerial shot of the city at night accompanied with a message that said: “Imminent news… sign up at http://www.found.ee/strokestakelondon”. The post added: “Check your inbox 9am GMT tomorrow.”
The band have already announced a handful of shows for 2015, including a headline set at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound festival in May. They’re also due to perform at Atlanta’s Shaky Knees festival and Tampa’s Big Guava festival, both in May.
The Strokes’ last gig in London was five years ago, but their most recent UK performances were a co-headline set with Pulp at the 2011 Reading and Leeds Festivals. The news will no-doubt spark excitement amongst fans as the band have yet to play UK shows since the release of their most recent album, 2013’s ‘Comedown Machine’.
