Culture Club icon Boy George also made an appearance at the band's final Wembley show
Following a four-song run of their ‘Neighbourhood’ tracks from debut album ‘Funeral’, Win Butler and co welcomed Welch to their ‘in the round’ stage.
With the band beginning their rendition of the euphoric 2009 hit, Welch sang and walked barefoot across the stage monitors. The surprise appearance came a day after Florence + The Machine returned with their new single ‘Sky Full Of Song’.
Welch returned to the stage for final track ‘Wake Up’, which also saw a guest appearance from Boy George. The Culture Club icon had surprised fans earlier in the set, performing ‘Karma Chameleon’ with the Montreal rockers.
After making their exit through the arena crowd, the band continued the performance backstage.
Cocker launched into a rendition of solo track ‘Cunts Are Ruling The World’, and joked about the enduring significance of the song. On the previous night, Hynde performed classic Pretenders song ‘Don’t Get Me Wrong’ with the band.
Arcade Fire are set to continue their Infinite Content tour in Birmingham on Sunday night (April 15), before bringing it to a close in Glasgow the following evening.
The band recently played ‘Vampire/ Forest Fire’ for the first time in seven years. The rare live performance came ahead of the group reissuing their debut EP for this year’s Record Store Day.
