This farewell concert was a celebration, a send-off extraordinaire, and a once-in-a-lifetime experience for those who were lucky enough to be there.
This is your chance to see the almost 4-hour concert in its entirety on the big screen. This event is also the early release party for Shut Up and Play the Hits on DVD and Blu-Ray; both these and SUAPTH posters will be on sale at the theatre that evening!
“If it’s a funeral, let’s have the best funeral ever.”
On April 2nd, 2011, LCD Soundsystem played its final show at Madison Square Garden. LCD frontman James Murphy had made the conscious decision to disband one of the most celebrated and influential bands of its generation at the peak of its popularity, ensuring that the band would go out on top with the biggest and most ambitious concert of its career. The instantly sold out, near four-hour extravaganza did just that, moving the thousands in attendance to tears of joy and grief, with New York Magazine calling the event “a marvel of pure craft” and Time Magazine lamenting “we may never dance again.”
From when “Dance Yourself Clean” kicks things off, to the crowd singing along to “All My Friends,” to the final encore of “New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down,” the film engulfs and moves, as the passion and emotion of the musicians and the crowd wash over. Someone great, indeed.
