However, fans of The Strokes have expressed concerns online about frontman Julian Casablancas’ well-being following the band’s performance at TRNSMT on Saturday (July 9).
Fans commented on his “worrying” behaviour on stage, saying they felt he needed an “intervention” claiming that he appeared to be heavily intoxicated.
One fan said he feared he’d “just witnessed the end of The Strokes” with “Casablancas genuinely looking like he needs help.” The fan added that “the man looked unwell.”
Some fans commented on how Casablancas didn’t hide his “distain” for the audience after he said that he preferred “Barrowlands” and after referring to the audience as the “Glasgow Children’s Choir”. Others also spoke about the poor sound quality of the gig and wondered if that may have been a contributing factor to the performance.
The Strokes declined to comment when NME approached a spokesperson for a response.
Last year’s event at Glasgow Green saw the likes of The Courteeners, Ian Brown, Liam Gallagher and The Chemical Brothers play to 50,000 people while Becky Hill drew such a huge crowd, organisers had to temporarily close the stage.
