LCD Soundsystem Confirms Terminal 5 Ticket Details, Adds Openers
LCD Soundsystem has confirmed some additional details about its upcoming performances at New York’s Terminal 5 from March 28-31. As previously reported, the group added four shows at Terminal 5 after scalpers allegedly hijacked tickets for the band’s April 2 farewell show at New York’s Madison Square Garden. Like LCD’s MSG show, Liquid Liquid will open for the group on March 28 and 29 while Shit Robot Live will support on March 30 and 31.
The group also posted the following message on its official homepage:
–tickets for ALL FOUR terminal 5 shows (march 28/29/30/31) will go onsale via ticketmaster at 9.00am on tuesday 22nd.
–there is a two ticket per person limit.
–the cost of a ticket is $40.00. ticketmaster charges will be $6.90 plus $2.05 per order handling fee. (that’s the best we could get, apparently)
–(as an attempt to avoid the “secondary market”) there will be no hard tickets. the only way to get in to terminal 5 on the nights of the shows will be to show i.d. at will call and then immediately enter the venue.
–we’re told that ticketmaster will also sweep the online purchases daily and delete any duplications from potential scalper bots. (please come to the venue early on show nights
_ – the line for entry may be long). if the tickets for the shows don’t sell out very quickly, we’ll stop the duplicate ticket thing and allow people to buy tickets for multiple nights. (just want to make sure all who want to go get a ticket before “multiples”, if that makes any sense)._
–oh… and we can’t do a walk-up ticket buy at the mercury lounge box office this time (w/o ticketmaster fees) because those are only the hard tickets, which can be sold afterwards. (yes, i asked about putting names on the hard tickets.)
–more important: we’re as bored of this ticket stuff as you are, so let’s just have fun a few last times, and then get some food! 2 more liquid liquid shows! the new york debut of mr. shit robot live, maybe featuring some guests! loudness and lights! fancy stuff!
