Fresh off Arcade Fire's magnificent album debut at the #1 spot for The Suburbs is the arrival of new tour dates for the Fall. Tickets are on sale.
They recently streamed their August 5th live performance at Madison Square Garden in New York on YouTube's Vevo, under the title "Arcade Fire Unstaged." Check out a video from it above.
It's been a few years since Arcade Fire have toured the U.S., and now they're currently playing a number of shows in the states. It will almost be an Arcade Fire/Spoon tour, as they'll play together for a number of shows. Arcade Fire will donate $1 from every ticket to Partners In Health.
The Suburbs was co-produced by Markus Dravs (Coldplay, Bjork). It will be the follow up to 2007's Neon Bible. It's a CD and double-LP offering, and was recorded in Montreal and New York. This is Arcade Fire's third full-length studio album.
