Arcade Fire Announces New Tour Dates

first_imgArcade Fire will return to the road in support of their 2017 album, Everything Now. Dubbed “Everything Now Continues,” the newly-announced series of dates will bring the indie rock icons through much of the Midwest and Southeast, including stops at Birmingham, AL’s Sloss Festival and Louisville, KY’s Forecastle Festival.Last year’s Everything Now tour was an interesting outing for the Canadian-American group, who are known for their energetic live performances. Rather than performing on a traditional stage, the band set up boxing ring-style platforms in the middle of various stadiums, offering fans a 360 degree view of the action during their concerts. Those shows usually featured career-spanning setlists, with numerous tunes from the latest album as well as their four earlier LPs.Arcade Fire’s next run through the United States will kick off on July 7th in Clarkston, MI before wrapping up in Bristol, VA on July 20th. Tickets for the shows will go on sale Tuesday, March 20th, though pre-sale tickets are available now.In related news, Arcade Fire just unveiled a “double music video” for the Everything Now tracks “Put Your Money On Me” and “We Don’t Deserve Love”. Titled by Money + Love, the David Wilson-directed video stars the band and acclaimed Australian actress Toni Collette. Additionally, Arcade Fire is scheduled to perform on Saturday Night Live this coming weekend (March 17th).Arcade Fire – “Money + Love”Arcade Fire Tour North American DatesJuly 7 Clarkston, MI @ DTE Energy Music Theater July 8 Milwaukee, WS @ SummerfestJuly 10 Pittsburgh, PA @ Stage AE July 12 Raleigh, NC @ Red Hat Amphitheater July 14 Birmingham, AL @ Sloss FestivalJuly 15 Louisville, KY @ Forecastle FestivalJuly 18 Boston, MA @ Blue Hills Bank Pavilion July 19 Philadelphia, PA @ Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing July 20 Bristow, VA @ Jiffy Lube Livelast_img read more
