James Murphy's New York outfit were forced to cancel their two dates in Dublin's Tripod on April 20 and 21 due to the ongoing flight disruption in the UK and northern Europe, as a result of the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano.
However, after announcing on the band's Twitter that they had landed safely in Spain, they promised to reschedule the Dublin dates.
On their official website the band said, "We're really bummed as Dublin has always been a special place and everyone was totally looking forward to playing there."
LCD played a knock-out show to revellers at the Coachella Festival over the weekend, with Spinner writers tweeting about the live performance of new material from album 'This Is Happening,' due for release May 17. They were then forced to seek an alternative route to make their touring commitments across the Atlantic, as the ash cloud from the Icelandic volcano has closed much of Europe's airspace.
The group now face a long drive up the continent from Madrid, to make their London dates in Brixton O2 Academy on April 23 and April 24, where they kick off their UK tour, before heading to Birmingham O2 Academy (April 26), Leeds O2 Academy (April 27), Glasgow Barrowlands (April 28 & 29), Manchester University (May 1) and Bristol O2 Academy (May 2). Support on all dates comes from Yacht.
