Alt rock titans the Strokes are set for big comeback with a global tour in 2019 according to several reports today. The highly influential NYC band has been confirmed to headline the BBK Festival in Bilbao, Spain in July according to a report by Consequence of Sound.
So let the speculation begin as to where the Stokes will land on Chicago’s prime row of musical festivals for the summer of 2019. Lollapalooza? Riot Fest? We don’t know for sure, but it’s fun to imagine shaking your hips to this on park district property to this wonderful band, isn’t it?
Members of the Strokes have remained busy since they last performed in 2017 with singer Julian Casablanca performing with his other group the Voidz, and guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. releasing his fourth solor album along a crushing set at he performed at this month’s Nights We Stole Christmas with 101WKQX.
