Arcade Fire Announces Seven Tour Dates
This summer, venues that normally house older acts with song titles such as “Livin’ On A Prayer” or “Born To Run” will host a sea of young folks shouting along to a song called “Wake Up.”
Arcade Fire will be headlining a string of arena shows beginning in August to promote their new album, The Suburbs, out Aug. 3. Spoon will be supporting the band for the New York, Philadelphia, D.C. and Atlanta dates.
