LCD Soundsystem Will ‘Rise From the Dead’ This Easter for a Pair of Intimate New York City Shows
The buzz surrounding LCD Soundsystem's reunion -- the inevitable rumors, denying said rumors and then confirming them -- has ratcheted up anticipation for James Murphy and company’s first live gigs in five years to an all-time high. But the dance-rock outfit plans to ease into things with a pair of intimate shows this weekend in their NYC stomping grounds.
LCD promise to “rise from the dead” this Easter for a pair of shows at New York City’s Webster Hall on Saturday and Sunday. (Naturally, the poster depicts Murphy and his cohorts looking downright zombie-esque.) In order to get tickets, you can plug in your information right here to enter the lottery. Those selected will get further information for purchasing tickets at a first-come, first-served basis.
Snagging tickets will certainly be luck of the draw, but you can also see LCD Soundsystem this summer when they play Coachella in April; Bonnaroo in June; and Panorama and Lollapalooza in July. They’re also slated for a bunch of European festivals. Check out their entire reunion tour itinerary below.
LCD Soundsystem broke up in 2011 following a massive farewell gig at Madison Square Garden. Now, not only do they plan to play a slew of summer fests, they also signed to Columbia for their first album since 2010's This Is Happening.
