Yes This September, Stella Artois is is hosting another fantastic film screening this time you have the chance to win tickets to the UK premiere of ‘Shut Up and Play the Hits’, a film that follows LCD Soundsystem’s frontman, James Murphy through his final showdown gig at Madison Square Gardens. Stella Artois have partnered with Picturehouse Cinemas and Pulse Films to host the premiere, followed by ‘An audience with James Murphy’- a special Q&A event for film fans at the screening.
‘Shut Up and Play the Hits’ is an intimate portrait documenting the final performance of iconic band, LCD Soundsystem. The film tells the story of how frontman James Murphy had made the conscious decision to disband one of the most celebrated and influential bands of its generation at the peak of its popularity, ensuring that the band would go out on top with the biggest and most ambitious concert of its career. The four hour gig instantly sold out and moved the thousands in attendance to tears of joy and grief. This personal account follows the final 48 hours of James’ career, as he navigates the lead-up to the show, the day after, and the personal and professional ramifications of his decision.
