LCD Soundsystem, through media rep Steve Martin, declined to disclose the number of tickets offered to the public during the pre- and general sales: “We’re not going to dignify that StubHub bullshit with a response.” James Murphy did, however, address fans directly in an online letter: “We were more than taken aback and surprised about the speed of ticket sales … as well as the effectiveness of scalper pieces of fucking shit at getting their hands on said tickets before fans could, and it’s knocked us on our asses.” He also followed through on a promise to make things right by adding four consecutive shows at Terminal 5 (also owned by Bowery Presents, and surprisingly still available for four straight days in late March) leading up to the MSG finale.

something is very broken with the system and has to change here

artists and fans still continue to get screwed all around
