LCD Soundsystem announce four extra New York farewell shows
James Murphy and co will play a series of gigs at Terminal 5 next month
Writing on the band's official website LCDSoundsystem.com, James Murphy revealed that they would play the Terminal 5 venue on March 28-31.
As previously reported, Murphy told chiefs at a supposed fan ticket exchange website to "eat shit" for selling tickets for the final LCD Soundsystem show at inflated prices.
"I bought two tickets to my own show for three times the value like an idiot to see if real tickets showed up," he explained in the blog. "My family got burned. It was, to say the least, weird."
Now the group are set to "look seriously at the way we sell these tickets", adding that they "just want to give people who actually want to see us a chance to see us for a reasonable ticket price. And I want to drop the price of the MSG [Madison Square Garden] tickets being sold by piece of shit scalpers".
In closing Murphy thanked fans before saying "don't let the shitbags win".
Tickets for the extra dates are set to go on sale soon, with an official announcement due next week.
LCD Soundsystem will play:
New York, NY Terminal 5 (March 28-31)
New York, NY Madison Square Garden (April 2)
