Tickets for Arcade Fire go on sale Friday, May 13th at 10am from Ticketmaster from €80.35.
Arcade Fire have announced a 3Arena Dublin date on August 30th August, 2022 in support of their sixth album WE, out today via Columbia Records.
Following the universally positive reception to singles 'The Lightning I, II' and 'Unconditional I (Lookout Kid),' the Canadian indie-rockers have announced a North American and European tour this autumn.
Arcade Fire’s previous album was 2017’s Everything Now. Two years later, they shared a cover of 'Baby Mine' for Dumbo. More recently, the band performed an as-yet-unreleased song called 'Generation A' on Stephen Colbert’s Election Night 2020.
In the wake of surprise underplays including New Orleans’ Toulouse Theatre, New York’s Bowery Ballroom, Coachella’s Mojave Tent and KOKO in London, the WE world tour will see the return of the full production Arcade Fire “must-see live act” experience to global stages, launching in Dublin.
The tour will run through December 1st in Toronto. The North American leg of the WE tour — featuring very special guest Beck playing a nightly acoustic set — will kick off October 28th in Washington D.C., while Europe is treated to special guest Feist.
Tickets for all dates will be on sale to the public on Friday, May 13th at 10am local time. Arcade Fire has partnered with PLUS1 ( http://www.plus1.org ) so that €1 per ticket goes to KANPE, and their work bringing support to the most vulnerable communities in Haiti.
Active since 2000, the act is composed of husband and wife duo Win Butler and Régine Chassagne - along with Win's younger brother William Butler, Richard Reed Parry, Tim Kingsbury and Jeremy Gara.
The band came to prominence in 2004 with the release of their critically acclaimed debut album Funeral. Their second studio album, Neon Bible, won them the 2008 Meteor Music Award for Best International Album and the 2008 Juno Award for Alternative Album of the Year.
Third studio LP, The Suburbs, was released in 2010 to critical acclaim and commercial success. It won the 2011 Grammy for Album of the Year, the 2011 Juno Award for Album of the Year and the 2011 Brit Award for Best International Album. In 2013, Arcade Fire released fourth album, Reflektor, and scored the feature film Her, for which Win Butler and Owen Pallett were nominated for Best Original Score at the 86th Academy Awards.
All five of the band's studio albums have received nominations for Best Alternative Music Album at the Grammys.
