Frontier Touring is thrilled to announce the return to Australia and New Zealand of Brooklyn icons LCD Soundsystem for their biggest headline shows ever this summer – touring February 2018!
Formed in New York City by James Murphy in 2002, LCD Soundsystem will return for what promise to be the HOTTEST shows of the summer – including two massive outdoor gigs in Melbourne and Brisbane.
Marking their return with fourth album American Dream (Columbia Records/DFA), the 10-track disc is the first new music from LCD Soundsystem in seven years, landing LCD their first ever number one debut on the US Billboard Albums Chart. With the core parameters of Murphy’s sound unchanged, American Dream strikes as a band evolved – as witnessed by Aussie fans in July, when they performed two sold-out dates as well as a headlining slot at Splendour In The Grass. With slots at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, Bonnaroo and Primavera, LCD Soundsystem has since embarked on a colossal world tour – playing to sold-out crowds of adoring fans across the globe and recently announcing additional dates in Europe and the USA.
And that’s not all: joining LCD at all shows is one of Australia’s greatest musical exports: Nick Murphy (FKA Chet Faker). Nick Murphy shot to fame via 2012 EP Thinking Textures, before catapulting his talents worldwide via debut album Built On Glass (Future Classic) – which won Murphy five ARIAs, including Best Male Artist and Producer of the Year. His tracks have been streamed in the tens of millions. Under his former Chet Faker moniker, Murphy has performed sold-out shows on five continents, appearing at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, and Primavera. He also performed on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’, Boiler Room, and ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’.
