Arcade Fire surprised fans at their first major gig of the year in Brooklyn, New York last Friday night (October 18) by performing on a secret stage. Though a stage was set up in the middle of the warehouse space at 299 Meserole in Bushwick, the band played their hour-long set on a stage at the side of the venue which was revealed at the last minute. At 9.30pm, former LCD Soundsystem man and co-producer of Arcade Fire’s forthcoming new album ‘Reflektor’, James Murphy appeared onstage. Speaking to cheers, he said: “We can only get three members for right now… I’d like to introduce The Reflektors.” Three musicians wearing giant papier-mâché heads then arrived onstage and played an aimless riff for a minute or so.
It soon became apparent that the real stage for the evening was at the side of the venue. Fans swarmed to the barrier on the left hand side of the room as a black curtain dropped to reveal a large stage upon which were the members of Arcade Fire. The band burst into their recent single ‘Reflektor’, the chorus sparking off a massive singalong from the crowd, most of whom were in fancy dress.
