Arcade Fire

Post by orwellaintdead on Tue 21 Feb 2012, 9:13 am

Just ripped the audio from Reading 2010 (gutted I missed them for Pendulum), and I think Arcade Fire might literally be the best band on the planet. I love Shikari, but Arcade Fire really are something else for me. Seeing them in Hyde Park will probably be one of my favourite gigs of all time - now I need to see them in a tiny venue. Well, at least less than 5,000


Edit:
The Reading set - totally worth the 90 minutes of your life:



Edit 2:
Their last uk tour was December 2010 and it was arena tour, and since then they've gotten a lot bigger, so not so much hope :/ However, they did do a one-off show at the 1,700 capacity Hackney Empire in July 2010, so there is hope yet!

suck to be you for seeing pendulum, i'd rather stay at the campsite than see them.
i know i've said it before on here, but they are one of the greatest bands ever. their stage performances are something else too. it's not just about seeing a band perform when you see them, the whole atmosphere is just electric, it feels like you're at some sort of celebratory festival haha (even when you're in an arena!)
i remember watching that set with niamh and vikki. if i remember correctly vikki wasn't familiar with their stuff, but after a few songs we were dancing like crazy. the crowd wasn't big but that made it 10x better. you could move around loads, and we were quite far in.
i know it's a long video, but just watch the last song. it was the best thing ever.
