The Strokes will be performing their first concert at Manhattan's Madison Square Garden on April 1st, nearly two weeks after the release of their new album Angles on March 22nd. The show was announced in a tweet yesterday by frontman Julian Casablancas. Tickets for the show will go on sale February 25th.
The Strokes' show at the Garden will be one day before their peers in LCD Soundsystem perform the final gig of their career there. Hopefully fans of the Strokes will have less difficulty acquiring tickets — the LCD Soundsystem show was almost instantly sold out thanks to aggressive scalpers.
