When tickets for three LCD Soundsystem gigs at Dublin's Olympia Theatre went on sale two weeks ago demand was so high they sold out in seconds.

Despite logging in on time, many fans were left disappointed as they were told not tickets were available for any of the three dates on September 27, 28 and 29.

They will be the band's only Irish shows this year and will feature tracks from their highly anticipated new album, their first in seven years.

The sense of loss for those who failed to nab tickets was palpable as they took to Twitter to complain. 

Nobody seems to know anybody who was actually successful although it's possible they're keeping schtum for fear of being lynched by The Unsuccessful.

However, there is a silver lining.  Well, perhaps more of a brass lining, but a party is being planned for The Unsuccessful where they can convene and share their tale of woe and dance the night away to LCD Soundsystem tracks.

It's not the real thing, but it's something.

LCD Soundsystem - I Didn't Get a Ticket Party at Hangar on Andrew's Lane kicks off on Friday September 29 at 10.30pm and organisers say, "we're going to throw one hell of a party and have a great night regardless".
