LCD Soundsystem shows are not being rescheduled

It is not possible to reschedule the LCD Soundsystem shows that were to have taken place in Tripod last week. The shows were affected by the flight disruptions due to volcanic ash.

Pod released the following statement today

“We regret to announce that it has not been possible to schedule replacement dates for the two LCD Soundsystem shows due to have taken place at Tripod this week. This is due to a massively busy international schedule LCD Soundsystem have in the coming months being made even tighter by the events of the past week.

It had been hoped that they could have been fitted in between their shows at Glastonbury on 26th June and Roskilde festival in Denmark the following weekend, but this has not proved feasible due to the sheer volume of equipment LCD Soundsystem on bringing on their current tour.

LCD Soundsystem are extremely disappointed not to be able to make this work, frontman James Murphy commenting ‘we’re really bummed as Dublin has always been a special place and everyone was totally looking forward to playing there’. LCD Soundsystem’s next trip to Ireland will now be for the Electric Picnic festival in September.

Refunds for both Tripod shows are available at point of purchase.”

    Nonsense. POD want us to shell out for (the poor line up at) Electric Picnic – there’s a 10 day gap inbetween the current European shows and the American leg, and there’s only Boy George on at the Tripod in that 10 day gap – either POD couldn’t be bothered, or Murphy and co. couldn’t be arsed. And it doesn’t help with LCDs Facebook and Twitter banging on about the supercool UK dates going ahead currently…….

    C’mon! 10 day between Europe and USA? Squeeze us in please!

  • This is a right kick in the balls. Their own shows are far better than at a festival.

    F*ck this and f*ck festival shows.
    Cashing in my Tripod tickets and getting a Ryan Air flight to Bristol for Sunday.
