Arcade Fire have announced that the online stream of their show at New York's Madison Square Garden will be directed by Terry Gilliam.

Former Monty Python member Gilliam has directed films including Brazil, 12 Monkeys and The Imaginarium Of Dr Parnassus.

The gig will take place on August 5 at 10pm (EDT).

Meanwhile, as well as being able to watch the Canadian group preview songs from their upcoming album 'The Suburbs', fans will be able to select multiple camera angles and even submit photos of their own "suburbs", which may be featured onstage during the band's performance, reports The Associated Press.
