LCD Soundsystem reportedly headlining Coachella
The New York-based band played their final show in April 2011 at Madison Square Garden, and later released a concert documentary of the show titled Shut Up and Play the Hits. Since then, frontman James Murphy has kept busy collaborating with other musicians, opening a Brooklyn wine bar, and working on a musical project set in New York City subways. The band also released a Christmas song Dec. 24.
Rumors of a reunion first surfaced earlier this fall, but they were quickly shot down by a manager at the band’s label. The Times posted the news of their Coachella reunion Tuesday. A representative for LCD Soundsystem declined to comment when reached by EW.
In other Coachella reunion news, Guns N’ Roses — Axl Rose, Slash, and all — are also set to take the stage at the same festival, the Times reports, “according to a person with direct knowledge of the festival’s plans, who was not authorized to discuss it publicly.” Billboard previously reported the news Monday.
Coachella will take place the weekends of April 15 and April 24 in Indio, California. The official lineup is set to be announced in the beginning of January.
