BENEFITING THE CENTER
IN HOLLYWOOD AND
FOOD CYCLE LA
TOUR BEGINS WITH SOLD OUT HEADLINE SHOWS AT BUDWEISER STAGE IN TORONTO MAY 20 AND LONDON’S ALL POINTS EAST FESTIVAL MAY 25
This week The Strokes played a special set to a capacity crowd at The Wiltern in Los Angeles. The evening show was a hometown benefit for The Center in Hollywood and Food Cycle LA. The Strokes partnered with The Center, a community dedicated to ending isolation and homelessness in LA and Food Cycle LA, an organization focused on eliminating hunger and reducing food waste. The evening efforts raised over $250,000 with all proceeds to be shared directly.
Later this month, The Strokes will again perform to sold out crowds when they headline Toronto’s Budweiser Stage May 20. “It’s always fitting to have an iconic band come back into the market with unprecedented fanfare. When we envisioned what the perfect act would look like to properly fit such a monumental event kicking off our 25th Anniversary, no one could’ve fit the bill better than The Strokes. We’re glad Toronto and Canada agree. A sold out event for one of rock music’s treasures,” said Erik Hoffman, President Live Nation Toronto. Furthermore, the band will headline one night of All Points East in London on May 25.
“The Strokes at All Points East has been the strongest sold out day we have had so far and shows the everlasting love affair that London and the U.K. have with the band,” raves Jim King, AEG UK.
Throughout the summer The Strokes will make additional festival appearances at The Governors Ball Music Festival, Poland’s Open’er Festival, Spain’s BBK Live Festival and Doctor Music Festival with more global stops. See below for currently announced dates, more to follow.
