Suggested Listening Here's an entire concert you can watch on YouTube from 2010:
You know they also played Bonnaroo that same year in 2010? Check it out.
Songs are quite a bit different, from the loud and fast "Movement".
to the slower, more relaxed "Someone Great".
Physical Reaction/Live Show You'll dance yrself clean. In all seriousness, you'll have a lot of fun at this show even if your not familiar with LCD, if you are, you'll have an even better time. Their music is catchy as hell and fun to dance to. If you get confused, listen to the music play.
Interesting Facts They released a Christmas song on December 24, 2015. The release came out of nowhere, while rumors had been circulating for months about a reunion, this thing confirmed it all.
Personal Notes Very excited to see LCD, I first started listening to them a few years ago back after they broke off and wrote off seeing them in concert as something I was too late to see, but am overjoyed at this reunion coming to Bonnaroo, easily my second most anticipated show this year after the Dead.
