The band will also be headlining the NOS Alive Festival in Lisbon, Portugal, taking place July 7-9, and Switzerland's OpenAir St. Gallen, which is scheduled for June 30th through July 3rd.
Furthermore, the concert will be another of a long line of gigs for the LCD Soundsystem reunion tour. LCD Soundsystem's website still says "2016 tour dates coming soon," but with each festival announcement, the band's touring pattern seems to be coming together. They have already been announced to headline Coachella and Bonnaroo.
