LCD Soundsystem announce two shows at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Savages and Museum Love will provide support at scene of U2's landmark 'Under A Blood Red Sky' concert

LCD Soundsystem have announced plans to play two nights at Colorado’s Red Rocks Ampitheatre.

Savages and Museum Love will provide support at the shows on August 2-3 later this year. The venue is famous for U2‘s landmark 1983 ‘Under A Blood Red Sky’ live performance which was released as an album and live concert.

LCD Soundsystem announced the dates via their Twitter page.

Earlier today, the band were also named on the bill for this year’s Glastonbury festival along with ZZ Top, Foals, Beck, Bat For Lashes, Sigur Ros and headliners Coldplay, Adele and Muse.

They reunited for their first live show in nearly five years on March 27.

The dance-punk band took to the stage at New York City’s intimate Webster Hall venue for the first of two warm-up shows ahead of their eagerly-anticipated Coachella headline sets.

Their career-spanning set featured 15 songs including a rendition of ‘Losing My Edge’ with updated lyrics. “Pharrell’s in the band now,” James Murphy sang shortly after the song’s “I was the first guy playing Daft Punk for the rock kids” line.

Following new live dates and promises of new music, it has been reported that the band have inked a deal with Columbia. 

LCD Soundsystem released their last album, 2010’s ‘This Is Happening’, through their own DFA Records via Virgin and Parlophone.

James Murphy previously issued a lengthy statement explaining how the band came to reform, the thought process behind the reformation and confirmation that they will release a new album in addition to the live dates. 

LCD Soundsystem are also confirmed to headline Lovebox in London in July.
