Deadmau5 recently hit out at Arcade Fire following comments made by frontman Win Butler at Coachella festival. The debate centred around Arcade Fire’s criticism of the proliferation of electronic acts on the bill with Deadmau5 asking, “Arcade fire needs to settle down. Dafuqs yer problem?”
Clearly referencing the electronic artist’s comments during their live show at St. Louis’ Chaifetz Arena last night (April 27), Arcade Fire used the LCD helmet to flash images of Deadmau5 during their set. The screen has previously shown images of other figures such as Rob Ford, George W. Bush, and Michele Bachmann during the US tour. The Deadmau5 moment came during ‘Normal Person’ with fan short footage available to watch above.
Meanwhile, Arcade Fire added a new cover version to their repertoire when they played Kansas’ ‘Dust In The Wind’ at a gig in Kansas City on Saturday night (April 26).
The track is the latest cover to be revealed by the band on their current world tour. Earlier this month, they played Blondie’s ‘Heart Of Glass’ in Texas.
They previously played their version of Boyz II Men’s ‘Motownphilly’ at a gig in Philadelphia; ‘Young Lions’ by fellow Canadian band Constantines in Toronto; and Stevie Wonder’s ‘Uptight (Everything’s Alright)’ at a gig in Michigan.
