The Strokes have announced a low-key homecoming gig in New York – they are to play an invitation-only show for fashion king Tommy Hilfiger on Sunday.

The Someday hitmakers last performed in their home city on their 2006 tour, but have spent the summer honing their live skills by playing sets at various festivals in Europe and Australia.

Now they are preparing for a concert at the Metropolitan Opera House in the Big Apple on Sunday – to mark the 25th anniversary of the Hilfiger fashion brand.
