LCD Soundsystem cancel upcoming Australia and New Zealand tour

"Unforeseen conflicts" have led to the cancellation

LCD Soundsystem have cancelled their upcoming Australia and New Zealand tour.

The Brooklyn band were set to head to the countries in February with support from Aussie act Nick Murphy (formerly Chet Faker).

The brief tour should have taken the group to Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Aukland.


In a statement on Frontier Touring, a spokesperson said the cancellation was due to “unforeseen conflicts.”

They added: “The band extend their sincere apologies for the cancellation and hope to return down under soon.”

The rest of LCD Soundsystem’s planned 2018 dates are still set to go ahead, including their recently announced gigs with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and TV On The Radio in the spring. 

The band returned from a seven year hiatus in 2017 with the record ‘American Dream’, which made NME’s list of the best albums of the year.

In February, LCD Soundsystem will go up against the likes of Lorde and Stormzy to win Best Live Artist at the NME Awards. Vote for your favourite here.
