After a presale that sold out instantly (people waiting on line for hours in the freezing cold outside Mercury Lounge included), LCD Soundsystem just sold out their final show at Madison Square Garden in an instant (give or take a few seconds of processing time). Promoter Bowery Presents’ website also crashed, presumably from all the people trying to figure out what to do, when tickets went on sale at 11am (see screenshot above). Congrats James.
