Product Description

On April 2nd 2011, LCD SOUNDSYSTEM played its final show at Madison Square Garden in New York City. LCD Frontman James Murphy, disbanding one of the most celebrated and influential groups of its generation at the peak of its popularity, ensured that the band would go out on top with the biggest concert of its career. The instantly sold out, near four-hour extravaganza featured special appearances by Arcade Fire and Reggie Watts and moved the crowd of thousands to tears of joy and grief. SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS both captures this once-in-a-lifetime event with stunning visuals and serves as an intimate portrait of Murphy as he navigates the 48 hours surrounding the show. Woven throughout is an honest and unflinching conversation between Murphy and author Chuck Klosterman as they discuss music, art, aging, and the decision to call it quits while at the top of your game. This special edition set includes the three-and-a-half-hour concert in its entirety, as well as the documentary film and loads of extras.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beat the document September 24, 2012
By P. Webb
Format:DVD
This 3 disc set is Oscilloscope release #45. Inside is the documentary feature about LCDSSs' final performance at MSG. The movie has whole songs from the concert which emphasize the quieter and meditative tone of the interview segments and over the shoulder next morning footage. There are extra extended interview segments with James Murphy if you didn't get enough during the movie. The main feature really is the double disc set of the concert, which features 2.0 stereo and 5.1 mixes both sounding rich and clear. The near 4 hour show is documented in its entirety including backstage breaks. While it can be exhausting to sit through everything this set offers, you will find a greater understanding of yourself and the band if you listen close and loud. My speakers were buzzing by the finale and I was fine with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful And Joyous Concert, With a Sad Ending. October 17, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been interested in electronica music and the Amazon computer suggests a lot of things that it thinks I might like. About five years ago it suggested a CD by LCD Soundsystem titled "Sound of Silver." I took the suggestion seriously because I'd read a review in "Rolling Stone" and I'd already decided that this would probably be a disc I'd enjoy. I bought and I indeed liked it very much and followed up later by also purchasing (and reviewing) "This is Happening" and "London Sessions." This was just a very good band and I loved their music and James Murphy was a terrific singer! Excellent recordings!

Well, LCD Soundsystem quickly and easily worked it's way into my list of a half-dozen favorite musical acts (including deadmau5, Daft Punk and Matthew Dear) that were the highest on my playlist. Then the notice came out that they were shutting the band down. Quitting? How can this be? This is one of the freshest and best bands around and they're quitting right as they reach their peak? Say it isn't so! Well, unfortunately, it was so and they gave a final concert at Madison Square Garden (a very large boxing arena) to a near-capacity crowd last April in New York City. The 3 1/2-hour concert is now available on DVD. Well, if you're a LCD fan this package is a must-have! They call it "Shut Up And Play The Hits" and it makes for an outstanding three-disc DVD package. The first DVD presents selections (highlights) from the concert together with assorted scenes and interviews with James Murphy and other band members. It's quite an interesting and well-done DVD. Be sure to look over all the extras. The second and third DVDs present the entire concert. The total package is just overwhelming and is probably the best concert DVD set I own (out of about 25).

5.0 out of 5 stars my favorite music documentary! December 12, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I have to admit I had heard a few random songs from the band before watching this doc, but I wouldn't even go so far as to call myself a fan. I was told by a friend that this is worth watching. Now that I've seen it probably 5-8 times, I can't help but kick myself for not listening to the band years earlier. I wish I could go back and see this concert live. Short of that, I'm ecstatic that we have this film to rewatch for eternity.

The concert footage is incredible, and the interviews and footage between songs is really fascinating. It's not overdone. A perfect balance between the two. It's really a unique story, of a band choosing to go out on top.

We get to gaze into Murphy's thought process and get front row tickets to one of the best MSG concerts in recent memory. You really should buy this!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent blu-ray April 10, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I don't really do concert films, but this is an exception. The energy of this show, and the movie goes back and forth between the interview and the concert footage really hold my attention. When I put this on the big screen, crank the stereo and turn the lights out it feels like a party at my house. Great film!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing film but buy it on DVD. April 3, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I love this and have watched it twice in the week since I bought it. With that said, the DVD comes with the full concert whereas the Amazon Instant video does not, so spend a few more bucks and get the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captured the concert experience April 14, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
That concert seemed like a religious experience! I had never been that into LCD Soundsystem, but I wish I could have been there. The crowd shots were amazing, and the quieter parts with James Murphy seemed very real and moving.
Well done.

If you are a LCD Soundsystem fan then this is a must. I'll also add that Reggie Watts makes a guest appearance for one song and f'n nails it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Video. March 7, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
A wonderful documentation of the final concert of a great band that chose its own end. Great look at the individuals and great music also. Too bad I only discovered them after they were gone.
