    I said the same just above your post.

    Did they play SXSW, Coachella, Bonnaroo and all those other festivals before the MSG show or after?

    Edit: Mr. Fuzz, you have the backing of Spooks, congrats.

    I love how this kid thinks he knows the Strokes lol. Was 2011 Coachella first time you saw the Strokes?!

    I should have stopped reading your post after you made this dumb statement...

Just because you love of The Strokes (heck, I love them too and I actually agree with you even that they are a better band...at least earlier in their career) it does not mean that they are a bigger headliner than AM. Everything I wrote in this thread has to do with AM's recent venues/tour which cannot be compared to The Strokes venues/tour because guess what? They aren't touring, so all our speculation is just that, speculation.

    Your citations on the Coachella slots (from years ago) only support what I said. That several years ago, The Strokes were bigger than AM.

    I'm going on record now to say right now that if The Strokes do a real tour following these couple of festival appearances, they will also play Staples in LA and will also sell it out. So to go back to who would play before each other at a festival...I'm going to take a step back and say that they are both big enough to headline a night on their own. Strokes headline Friday night at Coachella and Arctic Monkeys headline Sunday night at Coachella.
    My point is - you are going to see both bands play in the same market in the same month to roughly the same size audience (The Strokes headline FYF and Arctic Monkeys headline their own show at Staples). Talk to me after that and let me know if you still think that the AM are on the Strokes level. I think that it's a bit naive to think that FYF didn't sell out because of the Strokes triumphant return to LA. Bro, I suggest you get really fucking close to the stage for their set and familiarize yourself with their catalogue. There is potential for their show to be one of the greatest shows of your entire life and I'm not exaggerating.

    Lastly, I highly doubt that the Arctic Monkeys are headlining Life Is Beautiful. The promoters would be taking a huge risk with that booking in the Vegas market. I'll let you give me a hand job if they're booked as the headliner.

    Yeah, I love the shit out of the Arctic Monkeys, but even at fests here they're "headlining" this year, they're a 2nd line headliner and will be on the smaller of the two main stages at Lolla and Outside Lands. Hell, they're not even headlining some smaller fests like Squamish. The Strokes haven't played a non-fest LA date in nearly a decade, so comparing those last shows to Arctic Monkeys at Staples in 2014 is kind of a dumb comparison. If The Strokes booked an arena date in LA, they'd sell it out easily.

    "this kid" (as I was called above, love that) is archaic and doesn't have a Skype handle.

    Also, I'm very familiar with the catalogue and I do hope that they give me the show of a lifetime at FYF. I played the shit out of Room on Fire and First Impressions of Earth, which contrary to popular opinion, I really like. Angles did nothing for me tho. Worth revisiting? I've actually never even listing to Comedown Machine, i'll check it out this weekend.

    and they really need to release the lineup already so we can get past this AM/Strokes thing, I'd rather talk about the real lineup since I'm seriously considering going this year after all the positive reviews from last year.

    Yup. Love that one too, but on repeated listens doesn't hold up as well (for me) as RoF.

    Being treated like an asshole is par for course in LA (you really learn to like it here) and can be more of an advantage than a detriment.

    please see just about any career path within the entertainment (movie, TV, music ...), service and hospitality industries here; they are filled with sadists and those who can take (and sometimes even enjoy) the abuse. know so many people here who go running back with wide open arms to the most appalling work conditions/environment.

    some people don't mind being treated like cockroaches.
