Irish audiences will have the chance to dance themselves clean this summer at Malahide Castle
LCD Soundsystem have announced their return to Ireland with an outdoor show at Malahide Castle, Dublin on June 26th 2024. IDLES, Young Fathers and Dublin's Shit Robot complete what will be an incredible line-up.
LCD Soundsystem emerged from New York City in July 2002 with James Murphy’s first recording as LCD and third release on his DFA label, “Losing My Edge.”
Keyboardist/vocalist Nancy Whang and drummer Pat Mahoney were recruited for live shows and thus the band was born. Off the back of this, LCD Soundsystem released singles 'Movement' and 'Daft Punk Is Playing At My House', which would appear on the band's eponymous 2005 debut LP.
Sound Of Silver, the second LCD Soundsystem album, was released in 2007 and featured the singles “Someone Great” and 'All My Friends'.
In 2010, the third LCD Soundsystem album, This Is Happening, was released, featuring singles including “I Can Change" and debuting in the US Top 10. On April 2, 2011, LCD Soundsystem performed The Long Goodbye, a three-hour-plus farewell concert at a sold out Madison Square Garden, chronicled by both a live album of the same name and the feature film documentary Shut Up And Play The Hits. After four years of silence, LCD Soundsystem released the new song 'Christmas Will Break Your Heart' on December 24, 2015.
The band returned to the stage shortly thereafter, headlining festivals and select dates throughout 2016. 2017 saw the release of the #1-charting fourth LCD album, AMERICAN DREAM, which featured the Best Dance Recording GRAMMY-winning 'Tonite'.
In September 2022, LCD Soundsystem released its first new song in five years, 'new body rhumba', written for Noah Baumbach’s feature film White Noise. LCD Soundsystem is James Murphy, Pat Mahoney, Nancy Whang, Al Doyle, Tyler Pope, Korey Richey, Nick Millhiser and Abby Echiverri.
This is also not the only Irish date support act Bristol rock band IDLES will play in 2024. Yesterday, the British rock ensemble announced new dates for their 2024 Love Is The Fing Tour, including a gig at the 3Olympia Theatre, Dublin on November 19, 2024.
However if you wanted to catch them sooner and part of the LCD Soundsystem bill, you can see them at Malahide Castle, Dublin on June 26th 2024.
