The band is set for their comeback in June…
Speaking during a Reddit AMA session, The Governors Ball producers and promoters said The Strokes had an "open invite" to play the festival. The Strokes are set to stage their live comeback at the festival in New York this summer.
They commented: "We have tried to book The Strokes every single year that Gov Ball has existed . They essentially have had an open invite to play when they wanted. We got a call from their agent at the very last minute, saying that they wanted to reunite and play at the festival. Dream come true for us. We're New York City kids, and they are the greatest NYC rock band of our generation. BOOM"
The Governors Ball is set to take place on Randall's Island on June 6-8. Outkast will be headlining the event alongside Jack White and Vampire Weekend.
