The Strokes Announce New Year’s Eve 2021 Concert

By Matthew Strauss

The Strokes have announced a New Year’s Eve concert at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. It’ll mark the band’s first New Year’s Eve show in two years. Idles and Hinds will open for the Strokes at Barclays Center on Friday, December 31, 2021. Find the concert poster below.

At their last New Year’s Eve concert, the Strokes performedOde to the Mets,” which later featured on their 2020 The New Abnormal. Earlier this year, the Strokes won the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album for The New Abnormal.

In other Strokes news, guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. has launched a wine seltzer called Jetway, as Billboard notes. The wine seltzer is five percent alcohol by volume and does not contain cane sugar or artificial flavors. There are currently two Jetway offerings: a cabernet sauvignon and a rosé that’s made of syrah and cabernet sauvignon, all sourced from McNary Vineyard in Washington.

“Half the enjoyment of Jetway is its aroma—it takes you on a journey and makes you want to keep going back for another smell and taste,” Albert Hammond Jr. said in a statement. “The color is beautiful and the bubbles playful. I want Jetway to be the bridge to your next adventure, whatever that might be—hanging at home with friends, a night out or an exotic trip.”
