The Strokes staged their major live return at the Governors Ball event in New York last weekend.

Two studio albums in three years between 2011-2013 haven’t been enough to get the band out on a proper tour of any description, but after warming up for their hometown festival date at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York on the final day of May, The Strokes returned for real on June 7th Randall’s Island Park.

The setlist aired was identical to that played a week earlier, drawing heavily from the band’s modern classic of a debut album ‘Is This It?‘ as two of that LP’s enduring favourites – ‘Last Nite‘ and ‘New York City Cops‘ – closed the show.

Setlist:

‘Barely Legal’
‘Welcome to Japan’
‘Automatic Stop’
‘Machu Picchu’
‘Reptilia’
‘Razorblade’
‘Take It or Leave It’
‘One Way Trigger’
‘Under Control’
‘Heart in a Cage’
‘Hard to Explain’
’12:51′
‘Someday’
‘Happy Ending’
‘The End Has No End’
‘You Only Live Once’
‘Last Nite’
‘New York City Cops’
