The Strokes were supposed to play hometown festival Governors Ball earlier this year, but weather got in the way, and they posted a statement that seemed to imply they'd schedule another NYC show at some point to make up for it. Well, they've just announced a very big one happening on a very big day: New Year's Eve at Barclays Center. Tickets go on sale Friday (8/9) at 10 AM, and Governors Ball three-day and Sunday pass holders can get tickets early in a presale starting Tuesday (8/6) at 10 AM. There are other presales on Tuesday, too. You can watch an announcement video for the show below.
UPDATE: Mac DeMarco and Hinds are also on the bill.
