Arcade Fire fans will soon have extra opportunities to dance under the disco ball, as the band has added additional dates on the extensive Reflektor Tour, with even more to be announced.
Originally slated for a two-night stand at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center August 22-23, the band will saddle up for a third show on August 24. Next August also finds Win Butler and company going deep into the great Northeast with a visit to Bangor, Maine (August 20), as well as a new date in Toronto (August 29). Tickets for these new dates go on sale to the public December 13. All dates below.
While Arcade Fire has generated grumblings for asking that fans either dress in formal wear or costumes to the Reflektor Tour, to the point that the band had to explain that “it’s super not mandatory,” a fan across the pond has take the idea to a rather scorching extreme.
Twenty-year-old Inigo Lapwood attended a costume party at Oxford University dressed as “Arcade Fire,” which simply entailed him walking around with a homemade and fully functional flamethrower.
“I used it for about ten minutes, and it’s not as though I set any of my friends on fire,” Lapwood said after his antics forced authorities to shut down the party (via The Telegraph), adding, “I thought about doing the pun ‘Sex is on Fire,’ but I think that one would definitely be going too far.”
