LCD Soundsystem have announced details of a London residency this summer, which will mark their first UK shows in four years.

The All My Friends outfit planned to celebrate 20 years since they performed in London with four dates at the O2 Academy Brixton.

Their run of dates in the south London venue were set to take place on 29th June and 1st-3rd July 2022.

Tickets went on sale from Friday 11th March at 10am from AEG Presents.

Now, due to demand, they've added two more dates at the venue on 27th and 28th of June, which are on sale now.

See LCD Soundsystem's 2022 London dates below:

  • 27th June: London's 02 Academy Brixton
  • 28th June: London's 02 Academy Brixton
  • 29th June: London's 02 Academy Brixton - SOLD OUT
  • 1st July: London's 02 Academy Brixton - SOLD OUT
  • 2nd July: London's 02 Academy Brixton - SOLD OUT
  • 3rd July: London's 02 Academy Brixton - SOLD OUT

The announcement follows the clues appearing around the city, with the logo of the band’s DFA Records label appearing outside the likes of the O2 Academy Brixton alongside the words “You are here”.

The cryptic message of course refers to LCD’s debut single Losing My Edge, which sees Murphy listing historic events he to prove his credentials.

LCD Soundsystem formed in Brooklyn, New York in 2002.

They are comprised of frontman James Murphy (vocals, various instruments), Nancy Whang (synthesizer, keyboards, vocals), Pat Mahoney (drums), Tyler Pope (bass, guitar, synthesizer), Al Doyle (guitar, synthesizer, percussion), Matt Thornley (guitar, synthesizer, percussion), and Korey Richey (synthesizer, piano, percussion).

Alongside Losing My Edge, their most memorable tracks include All My Friends and Daft Punk Is Playing At My House.
