Arcade Fire wrapped up the final show of their North American tour by covering Wolf Parade's 'I'll Believe In Anything' – scroll down to watch – during a homecoming gig at Montreal's Parc Jean-Drapeau.

The cover marks the final instalment in a series where Arcade Fire have played a track by a band hailing from the city they're in each night. Like Arcade Fire, Wolf Parade come from Montreal, Quebec.

Over the course of the tour, which started on July 30 in Mountain View, California, the group have performed 17 covers. Notable songs on the list have included Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' in George, Washington; Neil Young's 'Come On Baby Let's Go Downtown' in Winnipeg; Pixies' 'Alec Eiffel' in Massachusetts; and The Ramones' 'I Wanna Be Sedated' in Brooklyn, with Marky Ramone.

Earlier this summer, frontman Win Butler hinted that the band could return to the studio following their current tours. Speaking before their Hyde Park headline show in July, Butler stated: "We're in a position now where we can have an idea and the people around us to make it happen. It starts when you get off the road. If I ever feel bored now, it's the best feeling in the world, because I know that's when the next idea is going to come into my brain and it will start again."

Meanwhile, Win and brother Will Butler have been lined up alongside members of The Strokes to play in an annual charity basketball match. The Pop vs Jock III game, which will take place during this month's Pop Montreal festival, is organised by the Butler brothers and will see them play for a team of musicians also comprising Justin Vernon of Bon Iver and The Strokes' bassist Nikolai Fraiture.
