LCD Soundsystem Blast Ticket Touts on Twitter


LCD Soundsystem have launched a scathing attack on touts selling overpriced tickets for their last ever gig.

The band, who have seemingly been winding down their career — or their live career, at least — play their final show together at Madison Square Garden on April 2.

But, as Gigwise reports, touts have apparently already been listing tickets for sale — some priced at $1,500 (£934) — and LCD Soundsystem have taken to Twitter to express their outrage.

They label the touts as “parasites” and admit it is “not worth that kind of money to see us.”

They said: “1500 for a single ticket? F— you, scalpers. You are parasites. I HATE you.”

“I will try to figure a way out to f— these f—ers. NO MATTER WHAT WE DO, IT IS NOT WORTH THAT KIND OF MONEY TO SEE US!”

As previously reported, LCD Soundsystem mainman James Murphy admitted in December last year that his band are done playing live — but might continue to release music. “LCD Soundsystem as a band is not gonna tour anymore after next year. It doesn’t mean we won’t make an album per se, but the process will be very different. We’re done being just a pro rock ensemble,” he said.
