LCD SOUNDSYSTEM announce new tour dates


Fresh off triumphant appearances at the Sasquatch, Bonnaroo and Pitchfork festivals, sold out multiple headline dates in New York, Paris, Dublin and more, and stops in Japan, Australia, Korea and beyond, LCD Soundsystem has confirmed dates of its extensive U.S. fall tour. This next U.S. leg will commence September 24 at Philadelphia’s Naval Cruise Terminal and will include LCD’s first ever headline engagement at Los Angeles’ legendary Hollywood Bowl on October 15, as well as sets at the Austin City Limits and V festivals, among others.

Special guests Sleigh Bells will appear on the September 24-October 8 dates, after which Hot Chip will occupy the special guest slot from October 13 on. Both Hot Chip and Sleigh Bells will appear at the Hollywood Bowl show.

The newly announced dates are the latest in LCD Soundsystem’s ongoing world tour in support of its third album, This Is Happening, which was released May 18 in the U.S. on DFA/Virgin. The first LCD record to debut in the U.S. Top 10, This Is Happening and attendant LCD live experience have been garnering unanimous acclaim, most recently including a #5 showing in NPR’s mid-year best music of 2010 so far listeners poll and Spin naming the band’s performance “Best Moment Everyone Expected To Be Great” at the recent Pitchfork festival.

On the forthcoming dates LCD Soundsystem constant James Murphy will be joined by core members Nancy Whang (keyboards, vocals) and Pat Mahoney (drums), as well as Al Doyle of Hot Chip (bass), Gavin Russom (keyboards), David Scott Stone (guitar) and Matt Thornley (percussion).
