James Murphy and crew promised that their tour in support of LCD Soundsystem's third full-length, This Is Happening, would be the band's last and he is keeping true to his word. The news comes via a post on the DFA website, announcing that James Murphy and co. are "retiring from the game."
However, they'll go out with a bang. The group has released an official statement at lcdsoundsystem.com, revealing plans to perform one final, marathon hometown set: "For just one more night, we will be playing with friends and family for nearly 3 hours-- playing stuff we've never played before." '80s underground dance group Liquid Liquid will open the show. The group has also requested that everyone who attends wear white, black, or black and white.
If you are lucky enough to live in New York City you can catch their final performance ever on Saturday, April 2nd at Madison Square Garden. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 11th. You can head here for ticket info.
