It seems the LCD Soundsystem reunion tour is in full swing! After reuniting on Easter Sunday for their first show in five years, the band has added two more dates: August 2nd and 3rd at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO. The group will be joined by Savages and Museum of Love, putting together two glorious nights of music for all involved.LCD just wrapped up a two night run at NYC’s Webster Hall, where the group came out in full force. The “warm-up” performances saw the band dive through a number of their older hits, including tracks like “Daft Punk Is Playing At My House,” “I Can Change” and more. While the band has said that they’re working on new music, fans only have their lethargic Christmas song as evidence of new work.Still, with performances scheduled for major festivals like Bonnaroo, Coachella, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury and more, there’s plenty of opportunities to see LCD Soundsystem at work.Check out the event poster for their newly-announced two-night Red Rocks run, and tickets can be found here. They go on sale this Friday, April 1st, at 10 AM.
