Arcade Fire performed onstage with Cyndi Lauper at the New Orleans Jazz And Heritage Festival on Friday (May 6).

The band have taken to covering Lauper's 1983 hit single 'Girls Just Want To Have Fun' in their live set, and she joined them onstage to perform it with them as well as 'Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)'.

Arcade Fire's Win Butler did not introduce the singer, simply saying to the crowd "We'd like to do one of our favourite songs from the '80s", at which Lauper walked onstage.

Arcade Fire headlined the New Orleans Jazz And Heritage Festival, which also saw sets from Bon Jovi, Mumford and Sons, The Strokes, Wilco and The Decemberists.

They return to the UK on June 30 to headline London's Hyde Park.
