LCD Soundsystem Announces Final Show

LCD Soundsystem will play its last show ever in April.

The band’s final performance is set for April 2 at Madison Square Garden Arena in New York.

Details about the show were posted to LCD Soundsystem’s official website over the weekend along with a statement from the band.

“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 it’s a funeral, let’s have the best funeral ever!!!”

The band encourages fans to check back with the website Tuesday for information on a mid-week fan pre-sale. Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, Feb. 11.

Before playing its final show, LCD Soundsystem has lined up a number of gigs in South America with performances later this month in Brazil, Colombia and Chile.

LCD Soundsystem has put out three full-length studio albums, including its most recent release, 2010’s This Is Happening.
