The opening weekend of The Warehouse Project is always a spectacle, and with LCD Soundsystem returning to Manchester for their first show in seven years, this September’s offerings are even bigger than usual. Taking place on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th September, the two shows will see James Murphy and his band starring along with a few very special guests at the Warehouse Project’s home, Store Street.
Tickets are on sale at 9am Wednesday 21st June.

Having said an emotional farewell to their huge fanbase back in 2011, LCD Soundsystem appeared to be finished for good, going out with an extraordinary five-hour long show at Madison Square Garden and a poignant rendition of the bittersweet ode to their hometown: “New York, I Love You but You’re Bringing Me Down”. Seemingly lost to the wind, a spell of silence from Murphy and co was finally broken on Christmas Eve 2015, with a new single and the promise of a reunion in 2016. Shows were few and far between in 2016; the reformed band playing out only a handful of times and mainly appearing at festivals like Coachella and Lollapalooza. UK-based fans will now delight in hearing that they’ll have to wait no more, with LCD teaming up with one of the nation’s most popular clubbing brands to launch their latest series in Manchester.
LCD Soundsystem had originally burst onto the scene in 2002, releasing a wealth of hits including “Losing My Edge”, “Daft Punk Is Playing At My House”, “Tribulations” and “All My Friends”, with three albums released in the near-decade before their temporary cease. Now back with new material ahead of their expected 2017 album, LCD Soundsystem will no doubt pick up exactly where they left off with a sterling show in front of a pumped up sold out crowd.
