Arcade Fire perform ‘Little Drummer Boy’ for Zach Galifianakis skit – watch

The band sang the festive song on the cult comedy sketch 'Between Two Ferns'

Arcade Fire have performed ‘Little Drummer Boy’ for comedian and actor Zach Galifianakis’ comedy talk show Between Two Ferns.

The Canadian band appeared on the fake show, aired through the Funny Or Die website, alongside actors Samuel L Jackson and Tobey Maguire. Scroll down to watch the clip, which sees Arcade Fire appear at the end to sing the festive song whilst fake snow falls. During the band’s rendition of the track, Win Butler lights a cigarette.

Arcade Fire will play a huge show at Dublin’s Marlay Park on June 29, 2014. The Dublin show is scheduled for the same weekend as Glastonbury – and takes place on the Sunday. Arcade Fire will also be playing two shows at London’s Earls Court on June 6 and 7, 2014. All of their UK and Ireland dates fall in the festival season, which is in line with Win Butler’s recent comments that the band will also play UK festivals next summer when he told fans they should “get [their] wellies ready”.

Arcade Fire play:

London Earls Court (June 6, 7, 2014)
Dublin Marlay Park on (June 29)
