LCD Soundsystem is headlining Lollalaplooza Sunday, July 31, and they will command the field. But a few lucky folks will get a chance to see the band in a much more intimate setting when they play Metro on Friday, July 29 and Saturday, July 30.

The band just announced the two night stand and people that were lucky enough to snag tickets when they went on sale at 11 a.m. this morning are in for a hell of a show. The last time we saw them in that venue was one of the best live shows we've ever seen (and we're talking over a three decade history of live shows).

While tickets sold out instantaneously, we highly recommend stalking Stubhub and other resellers, because this is going to be a concert you'll be telling your grandkids about.
