Canadian puzzle-poppers draw out hard-core fans in Austin
Fans had queued outside in the sweltering heat to see the band up close and personal, and duly responded to a high-octane set by dancing, fist-pumping and cheering at every opportunity.
The band took the stage at 5:35pm (CMT) – over an hour and a half after their scheduled stage time, as events at the Peacock overran.
