On July 18, fans eager for one last glimpse of the revered band LCD Soundsystem will have their wishes granted, as the documentary “Shut Up and Play the Hits” hits theaters across the country.
Audiences in 70 cities will be able to catch the film, which chronicles the band’s final days and their last show at New York’s Madison Square Garden on April 2, 2011. Those who don’t live near cities hosting the film can visit the movie’s website to request a screening in their own hometowns.
The film, directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace, also credits Spike Jonze for camera work and journalist Chuck Klosterman, whose narration appears in the trailer.
The trailer for the documentary, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, ends with frontman James Murphy, alone with his instruments in an empty studio, implying that while the LCD Soundsystem journey may be over, his is not.
Tickets for the one night only event are on sale now.
