The Strokes headlined Lollapalooza in Argentina last night (March 19) marking their first performance of 2022.

Julian Casablancas and co. topped the bill of the festival’s second night at Hipódromo de San Isidro in Buenos Aires. Other headliners on the night included Doja Cat and Machine Gun Kelly.

The Strokes, whose last album was 2020’s ‘The New Abnormal’, haven’t played out since their Brooklyn Steel show in New York last November. During their set at Lollapalooza, the band performed ‘Eternal Summer’, giving the track its live debut.
