Arcade Fire Announce First Tour Dates Since 2014
Arcade Fire have revealed their first live shows since their 2014 tour dates behind their most recent full-length Reflketor.
First, the Canadian art-rockers will play a benefit concert in their hometown of Montreal. That will take place on Feb. 19, and it supports co-frontwoman Régine Chassagne’s Haiti relief charity KANPE. In addition to Arcade Fire, David Byrne, Saul Williams and The Office actor Rainn Wilson will also make appearances at the show.
Then, the band will make their way to a couple of European festivals. They’ll first play Bilbao BBK Live in Spain, which runs from July 7-9, and then NOS Alive in Portugal on July 9. See a rundown of all three shows at the bottom of the page.
Arcade Fire dropped Reflektor, their fourth album in all, in 2013. Since then, they have issued the Kahil Joseph-directed The Reflektor Tapes documentary, which chronicled the making of their most recent LP and the tour behind it. That film coincided with a 7” single featuring two previously unreleased songs and a Reflektor deluxe reissue boasting another three unheard tracks.
