Blowing up in 2001 with their hit album Is This It—featuring immortal tunes like “Last Night” and “Hard to Explain”—the Strokes have been one of the few rock bands from the early 2000s to have survived and thrived. On Jul 18, they’ll make their way to Bangkok.
On Monday (Apr 17), the Strokes announced shows in Hong Kong and Bangkok in 2023, playing in Thailand’s capital on Jul 18. Tickets go on sale Apr 20 for this one night show at the Thunder Dome, Muang Thong Thani, in Pa Kret.
At the turn of the millennium, the White Stripes were big, the Hives rocked the world, and Pulp blew up in America. Few 2000s rock bands have been able to remain as popular and relevant as the Strokes.
Made up of Julian Casablancas, Nikolai Fraiture, Albert Hammond Jr., Fabrizio Moretti, and Nick Valensi, the unapologetically retro sound of the Strokes has endured for six studio albums, most recently “The New Abnormal” in 2020.
Bangkok will be the second stop on the Asian leg of the tour after Hong Kong, and then the band will be off to play Kuala Lumpur, We The Fest (WTF) 2023 in Jakarta, and the Fuji Rock Festival.
