Late last week LCD Soundsystem, the musical project led by DFA Records co-founder James Murphy announced on Twitter that they would be playing their final live show, a sort of farewell on April 2nd at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The much anticipated farewell concert sold out in minutes, but fans shouldn't fret as sold out LCD Soundsystem tickets are available on SeatGeek.
Murphy has been hinting at disbanding the act for years now, and released the following official statement on February 7th:
"good people of earth:
lcd soundsystem are playing madison square garden on april 2nd, and it will be our last show ever. we are retiring from the game. gettin’ out. movin’
on. but for just one more night, we will be playing with friends and family for nearly 3 hours–playing stuff we’ve never played before and going out with a bang. and we’d like you to be there.
if you would, we’d love it if people all came in white. or black. or black and white. and come ready to have fun, please. and come early, as the festivities will be opened by our favorites, liquid liquid. yes: liquid
if it’s a funeral, let’s have the best funeral ever!!!"
Tickets for the event went on presale on February 9th, quickly selling out in less than an hour. The official sale took place on February 11th and eager fans grabbed the remaining tickets in less than 20 minutes. For LCD Soundsystem fans, this is sure to be a bittersweet show - an all out, beat pumping dance party, but also the final performance of a truly prolific band.
