Arcade Fire Announces Two Festival Dates
Things have been relatively quiet on the Arcade Fire front up until recently, when the band confirmed they’d be headlining two popular European festivals. Over the weekend of July 7 they’ll headline both Bilbao BBK Live and NOS Alive, held in Spain and Portugal, respectively. These will be the band’s first live shows since 2014.
The NOS Alive festival is particularly exciting, as they’ll be sharing the stage with none other than Radiohead (who we already predicted would be hitting the road this year). According to a press release, festival-goers can expect “a unique and unrepeatable concert that will review their greatest hits, including those from their latest album, Reflektor.” The band will also appear at a February 19 benefit in Montreal.
Currently, the band is in New Orleans working on a new album. Perhaps the upcoming studio release will coincide with the upcoming tour dates? Only time will tell.
