On Thursday we went to Hyde Park for the British Summer Time music festival to watch The Strokes.

We had tickets for the premium section, but still wanted to get there early to be right at the front, so we left about 12:00 to catch the train at half past. After a couple of train changes and a bit of a walk we made it to the premium gates, which opened at 2:30.

We did get to be at the front but I felt like it was still a bit far from the stage, so any pictures taken didn't come out that well.

We saw Syd Arthur, then Future Islands, then Beck and finally The Strokes. They went on at around 9:00 pm, after a 6+ hour wait.

They played songs from every one of their 5 albums (Is This It, Room On Fire, First Impressions of Earth, Angles and Comedown Machine). The set list was:

'Is This It'
'Barely Legal'
'Welcome To Japan'
'You Talk Way Too Much'
'Heart In A Cage'
'Hard To Explain'
'Automatic Stop'
'Vision Of Division'
'Last Nite'
'Machu Picchu'
'Under Cover Of Darkness'
'One Way Trigger'
'New York City Cops'

'You Only Live Once'
'Take It Or Leave It'

It was the 3rd time I've seen them live (1st for my hubby) and even though I'm still tired and with sore feet and legs I enjoyed very much.

The only thing I regret is not noticing that Alex Turner and Miles Kane were dancing in the crowd behind us (!).
