It's been a week of goodbyes - White Stripes, Gorillaz and now LCD Soundsystem. LCD Soundsystem has confirmed that it will play its final, definitive and ultimate LCD live show at New York City's Madison Square Garden on 2 April.
Billed as 'LCD Soundsystem: The Long Goodbye', the three-hour farewell performance will be the lengthiest most career-spanning set the band has ever played. Those attending can expect the return of long dormant deep cuts to the LCD setlist as well as the first (and last) live performances of a number of never-before-played music spanning LCD Soundsystem's decade-defining albums - LCD Soundsystem, Sound of Silver, This is Happening, the acclaimed 45:33, and more.
LCD Soundsystem: The Long Goodbye will see James Murphy and company going out both on top and on their own terms: as the ultimate LCD live performance in both senses of the word, the show will see the LCD core live band of Murphy, Pat Mahoney, Nancy Whang, Al Doyle, Gavin Russom, Tyler Pope and Matt Thornley augmented by a choir, string and horn sections plus contributions and collaborations from both one-time-only special guests and many of the musicians with whom the band has worked over the years.
The members of LCD Soundsystem will be observing a black and white clothing only dress code for The Long Goodbye. They respectfully request that the audience do the same. Tickets for LCD Soundsystem: The Long Goodbye will be on sale 11 February at bowerypresents.com and ticketmaster.com
