The Strokes are crossing the river from their hometown of Manhattan to give New Yorkers a New Year's Eve party to remember in Brooklyn. The band announced on Monday (August 5) that it would be playing a special NYE show at Barclays Center, as a way to make up for its Governors Ball headlining set, which ended up getting rained out back in June. As the rockers simply put it on Instagram, "People wanted us to play a show in NY. So we thought o.k. Tickets on sale Friday, check the link in bio for deets."
Gov Ball ticket-holders will have first access to tickets in a presale starting Tuesday (August 6) at 10am EDT before they're available to the general public on Friday (August 9) at 10am EDT.

Though The Strokes haven't been playing new material during their recent festival sets, their booking agent Marsha Vlasic recently told Music Business Worldwide, “The Strokes are coming with new music — we had a heartbreak in New York when they were headlining Governors Ball, the weather destroyed our show and we never played, but having them back on the live music scene is exciting.”
Hopefully they'll be ringing in the new year with some new songs!
