From old to new the American rockers went from ‘New York City Cops’ to ‘Matchu Pitcchu’ within three songs.
The crowd however really felt the energy of the band when ‘Last Night’ was belted out in true Strokes fashion.
Lead singer Julian Casablancas kept the bands reputation in tact by looking fashionably cool in sunglasses and a leather jacket.
"There are muchos fucking people here" he said to the Spanish crowd before launching into the  much loved ‘This Is It’ album classic ‘Hard To Explain’.
Albert Hammond remained clam like the rest of the band throughout the set even during those catchy pop guitar solos.
The nonchalant band famed for their cool finished abruptly on ‘Room Is On Fire’ single ‘The Way It Is’.
"They were awesome!" said Strokes fan Matt Hampshire, 16, confirming the bands status is still capturing the hearts of the young.
