Arcade Fire Join LCD Soundsystem Onstage For Farewell Show at MSG
The two indie super groups pair up for LCD's high-energy "North American Scum."
Members of Grammy-winning indie rock band the Arcade Fire joined LCD Soundsystem on stage at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night, handling background vocals on the song “North American Scum,” off of LCD Soundsystem's 2007 album Sound of Silver.
The MSG show, which sold out in seconds, is LCD's farewell concert and was preceded by four performances at New York’s Terminal 5. LCD frontman James Murphy introduced Arcade Fire’s Win and William Butler and Régine Chassagne with a long-winded explanation of how the band has its roots in both Canada and the U.S. -- a fitting preamble considering the title of the song, but also one that prompted Butler to yell, “Shut up and play the hits!”
