The Strokes to play intimate Chicago show to support congressional candidate

The Strokes have announced an intimate concert in Chicago that will take place later this month, in support of congressional candidate Kina Collins.

Collins is running for Congress in the upcoming June 28 primaries, representing Illinois’ 7th District.

The Strokes will hold a special performance at the 1,100-capacity Metro venue on May 30, marking the first time in 20 years the band has performed at the venue. Tickets go on sale tomorrow (May 20) at 10am CST and you can buy them here.

“Kina Collins has been through the field challenges in IL-7 and she is exactly the kind of non-corporate, kindhearted, forward-thinking leader the world needs in these corrupt times.” band leader Julian Casablancas said.

“In a system dominated by super pacing and profit-driven political machines, Kina is rejecting all of that and choosing to fight for people’s actual needs and wants.”

Collins added: “We’re thrilled that The Strokes are coming to Chicago to help our campaign gain new momentum in the final stretch before election day on June 28. Julian and I sat down close. here and he spoke all about his passion for electing progressive working-class leaders and transforming our Government.

“The Strokes are a huge band for a lot of voters in IL-7 and the Chicago area, and I can’t wait to get our supporters together and register some new voters. .”

The congressional candidate is the Democratic Party candidate and the gun violence prevention candidate. In her career to date, she has led the largest gun violence prevention nonprofit in Illinois and was a member of the Biden-Harris transitional group’s gun violence task force.

Meanwhile, the band will appear at a number of festivals this summer, including Corona Capital in Mexico, Spain’s Primavera Sound, Lancashire’s Lytham Festival and the TRNSMT Festival in Glasgow.
