Is Halloween show band's last ever in Nottingham?

Arcade Fire’s Win Butler was hit in the face by a bottle during last night’s (October 31) gig in Nottingham.

The band, who were dressed in Halloween costumes (pictured), were playing ’Neighbourhood #3 (Power Out)’ when he got hit.

Butler changed the lyrics to: ”Where’d you go? / No seriously/ Where’d you go you fucker?”

The band went off stage and returned for a performance of ’Rebellion (Lies)’ and, according to a witness, “someone threw something again”.

Butler stopped playing for a second time and told the audience: “We’’ll never play Nottingham again” before continuing with the song.

Meanwhile, the show saw the live debut of track ‘Surf City Eastern Block’, plus a performance of The Smiths‘Still Ill’.

The band are now set to play three sold out nights at London’s Alexandra Palace from Saturday (November 17-19).
