Arcade Fire continued their residency at the Judson Memorial Church in New York last night (February 14) with a Valentine’s Day-themed show.

Aside from providing the audience with supplies of heart-shaped chocolates and sweets, frontman Win Butler also dedicated new track ‘My Body Is A Cage’ to his wife and fellow band member Regine Chassagne in honour of the occasion.

Butler earlier revealed to the sold-out crowd (amongst whom featured Strokes bassist Nikolai Fraiture and ‘Saturday Night Live’’s Andy Samberg) that he had been suffering from ill health for sometime, and that his doctor had advised him not to play the recent dates in London and the latest set of gigs in New York.

Despite that, he still managed to put in a highly enthusiastic performance in which his band showcased material from their forthcoming second album ‘Neon Bible’.

The band played:

‘No Cars Go’
‘Black Mirror’
‘Keep The Car Running’
‘(Antichrist Television Blues)’
‘Black Wave/Bad Vibrations’
‘My Body Is A Cage’
‘The Well & The Lighthouse’
‘Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)’
‘Rebellion (Lies)’
‘Neighborhood #2 (Laika)’

Arcade Fire continue their stay at the Judson Memorial Church until Saturday (February 17).

‘Neon Bible’ will be officially released on March 5 in the UK and a day later in the US.
