The Strokes had to cancel their set at Spain’s Primavera Sound festival this week due to COVID-19, but the band’s music was still heard thanks to Tame Impala.

Kevin Parker and company performed a cover of Strokes classic “Last Nite” during their Primavera Sound set Thursday. You can watch fan-shot footage of the rendition, which inspired an enthusiastic crowd singalong, now via YouTube.

Primavera Sound announced earlier this week that The Strokes would be canceling their Friday headlining set due to an “ongoing positive COVID-19 case” within the band. A positive test also forced The Strokes to pull out of last weekend’s Boston Calling festival.

The Strokes expect to return to the stage next Wednesday, June 8, for a show in Stockholm, Sweden. They’re also scheduled to play the second weekend of Primavera Sound on June 10.
