Shut Up and Play the Hits

LCD Soundsystem

Shut Up and Play the Hits is a documentary of two British filmmakers Will Lovelace and Dylan Southern from 2012. In the 108 -minute film music they hold the concert of the music project LCD Soundsystem on April 2, 2011 in New York permanently. Named after the film is a jocular acclamation of Win Butler, the lead singer of the band Arcade Fire, who stood as a guest musician on the stage. It was shown for the first time on 22 January 2012 at the Sundance Film Festival.


During the concert, which took place on April 2, 2011 in front of 20,000 people at Madison Square Garden, explains the initiator of LCD Sound System, James Murphy, at the peak of success that resolution. Lovelace and Dylan caught the nearly four -hour concert with eleven cameras. In addition to the concert footage of an interview music journalist Chuck Klosterman is to see that he made a week before the farewell concert with Murphy. The two filmmakers accompany Murphy also on the day after the concert.
