The 'This Is Happening' creators took to their website to announce the show, which will be nothing short of a marathon. "We are retiring from the game," they wrote. "gettin' out. movin' on. but for just one more night, we will be playing with friends and family for nearly 3 hours–playing stuff we've never played before and going out with a bang. and we'd like you to be there [sic]."
While the band wants fans from near and far to come and bid them farewell, LCD does have one request: for all those in attendance to wear white and black. They'll also give loyal supporters a treat in the form of openers Liquid Liquid.
Last July, LCD frontman James Murphy revealed some details behind why the group, which formed in 2002, decided to split. "It's all just gotten bigger than I planned or wanted. Not that I'm against it but I don't want to get bigger," he told Pitchfork. "What's the goal now--get f-----g huge? I don't want to be a famous person. It's f-----g great where we are. I get on an airplane and nobody has any idea who I am. I just want to do other stuff. And since we know we're not gonna do another record I feel freer to do the biggest shit I possibly can. Like, 'F--k it, we should play Madison Square Garden.'"
