A pair of early aughts rock legends shared the stage in Mexico City on Monday night. The Strokes’ Julian Casablancas made a surprise appearance during The Raconteurs’ show at El Plaza Condesa, joining the Jack White-led outfit for an encore performance of “The Modern Age”. Watch fan-captured footage below.
As best as I can tell, last night marked Casablancas and White’s first on-stage collaboration since The Strokes’ legendary August 2002 gig at Radio City Music Hall in NYC. At that show, White joined the band for a performance of “New York City Cops”.
The Raconteurs are wrapping up an extensive tour behind their comeback album, Help Us Stranger, with a few additional dates schedule for December. Meanwhile, Casablancas’ Strokes are reportedly close to putting out a new album of their own.
