The Strokes have had to cancel their New Year’s Eve show due to rising covid cases.
Making the announcement on Twitter, the NYC band wrote: “How can we put this…. We’re postponing the show. We were so excited to be performing for everyone in Brooklyn this New Year’s Eve, but the Omicron variant has thwarted our plans.”
Although they used the word “postponed,” there’s really no re-do for a New Year’s Eve show. As for another date at the Barclays Center, that hasn’t been worked out yet, but all tickets will be honored when it does.
The band added to their post: “We want everyone to stay safe and healthy and we look forward to celebrating the new year with all of you… just a bit later than originally planned.”
The Strokes recently announced they are scheduled to play Lollapalooza in Chile, in March next year.
