, Staff

LCD Soundsystem will soon call it quits. James Murphy, the band’s mastermind, has announced that their April 2 show at New York City’s Madison Square Garden, which will their first time headlining the storied arena, will serve as their final, definitive and ultimate live show. Billed as “LCD Soundsystem: The Long Goodbye”, this three-hour farewell performance will be the lengthiest most career-spanning set the band has ever played.

Fans attending the show can expect the return of long dormant deep cuts to the LCD setlist as well as the first (and last) live performances of a number of never-before-played music spanning the group’s decade-worth of material including LCD Soundsystem, Sound of Silver, This is Happening, 45:33, and more. Murphy will play alongside longtime bandmates Pat Mahoney, Nancy Whang, Al Doyle, Gavin Russom, Tyler Pope and Matt Thornley augmented by a choir, string and horn sections plus contributions and collaborations from both one-time-only special guests and many of the musicians with whom the band has worked over the years.

Murphy and company will be observing a black and white clothing only dress code for the long goodbye and respectfully request that the audience do the same. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $35 to $49.50, go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.
