Synopsis

On 2 April 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 bands of its generation at the peak of its popularity, ensuring it would go out on top with the biggest 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. SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS documents this once in a lifetime performance and presents an intimate portrait of Murphy as he navigates personal and professional ramifications of his decision.
