LCD Soundsystem play first live show in five years

The dance-punk band blast out 15 songs at an intimate New York City venue

LCD Soundsystem reunited for their first live show in nearly five years last night (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, Billboard reports. “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.

The band will play their second show at New York City’s Webster Hall tonight (March 28). Check out their first night setlist and fan-shot footage of ‘Dance Yrself Clean’ and ‘All My Friends’ below.

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.


The statement read: “We’re not just playing Coachella. we’re playing all over. we’re not just having some reunion tour. we’re releasing a record (sometime this year—still working on it, actually), so this isn’t a victory lap or anything, which wouldn’t be of much interest to us).”

LCD Soundsystem are confirmed to headline Lovebox in London in July, the band’s first UK date since announcing their reunion.

LCD Soundsystem released their first new music in five years over Christmas.
