Arcade Fire performed three tracks live from their recent album 'Reflektor' on French TV yesterday (November 21).

The band played 'Joan Of Arc', their album title-track and 'Afterlife', the official video of which they also unveiled yesterday, on Le Grand Journal. Click below to watch all three performances.

As with all their recent shows the band donned fancy dress costumes with singer Win Butler wearing a tiger balaclava on 'Joan Of Arc'. Meanwhile, the band recently issued a statement asking fans to relax about the formal and fancy dress code at their 'Reflektor' shows. They had previously asked fans to don fancy dress for their string of intimate shows around the release of their new album, and have continued the theme for their bigger dates next year, including their huge show at London's Earls Court on June 6, 2014. The dress code reflects the band's own use of costumes including masks and papier mâché heads.

A statement posted on the band's Facebook page now reads: "To everyone really upset about us asking people to dress up at our shows… please relax. It's super not mandatory. It just makes for a more fun carnival when we are all in it together. So far these have been the best shows we have ever played. See you soon. Love, Arcade Fire."

Tickets for their Earls Court show go on sale November 28. Meanwhile, frontman Win Butler has hinted that the band will also play UK festivals next summer.
