Touring in support of their acclaimed new album ‘Everything Now‘, the band debuted what they dubbed as ‘by far their most ambitious production’ at the Centre Vidéotron in Quebec City in their native Canada. Arcade Fire were playing in the round as they did at London’s York Hall earlier this year, albeit on a much grander scale.
While the band took the time to face every direction of the audience, they performed beneath four huge LED screens showing dramatic visuals and giving fans a true 360° view of the spectacle.
Opening with title track ‘Everything Now’, the band then led into a career-spanning 22 song set. As well as the usual run of hits and fan favourites, the band also gave new tracks ‘Put Your Money On Me’, ‘Infinite Content’, ‘We Don’t Deserve Love’ and the reprise version of ‘Everything Now’ their live debut.
Fans were delighted when the opening song of the encore ‘We Don’t Deserve Love’ saw frontman Win Butler enter the crowd to perform. See more footage below.
