The headline show at the new outdoor space at SWG3 – christened this summer with a pair of shows from The xx – is set for Sun 27 May. The gig falls two days after the band's headline set at the brand-new All Points East festival at Victoria Park in London, on a bill which includes Phoenix and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. 

LCD Soundsystem made a triumphant two-night return to the Barrowlands on their European tour back in September, with the only possible quibble in our five-star review being slight lulls during tracks from the then-brand new American Dream record. Now that everyone's up to speed, we don't think that should be an issue.
