For one night only, you can experience the band you should have been listening to for years. Arden Concerts presents LCD SOUNDSYSTEM's documentary "Shut up and Play the Hits" at Theatre N at Nemours on July 18, 2012.
On April 2nd, 2011, LCD SOUNDSYSTEM played its final show at Madison Square Garden. LCD frontman James Murphy had made the conscious decision to disband one of the most celebrated and influential bands of its generation at the peak of its popularity, ensuring that the band would go out on top with the biggest and most ambitious concert of its career. The instantly sold out, near four-hour extravaganza did just that, moving the thousands in attendance to tears of joy and grief, with New York Magazine calling the event "a marvel of pure craft" and TIME magazine lamenting "we may never dance again." SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS is simultaneously a document of a once-in-a-lifetime performance and an intimate portrait of Murphy as he navigates both the personal and professional ramifications of his decision.
The film was directed by Dylan Southern and Will Lovelace and is being distributed by Oscilloscope Pictures (the distribution company of late Beastie Boy Adam Yauch). It will be released in theaters across America for a special "one-night only engagement" on July 18th.
Before his unfortunate passing Yauch said of the band: "It can be pretty clear when a band starts, but perhaps less so when it ends, or how it should end. In that sense, it's brilliant of James [Murphy] to end it in such a definitive way."
James Murphy said of the final show, "If it's a funeral . . . let's have the best funeral ever!!!" and encouraged everyone to wear black or white or black and white. In the spirit of the event, we are requesting the same.

About Theatre N at Nemours

Located in The Nemours Building at CityCenter@Wilmington 1007 Orange Street the theater underwent renovations that include new seats, painting, carpeting, movie screen and a concession area. It is located on the first floor of a 14-story building in Downtown Wilmington formerly owned by the DuPont Company. Today, the newly renovated property is owned by the Buccini/Pollin Group.
