Arcade Fire: The Homecoming of the Century
For indie-rock phenomenon Arcade Fire, all roads lead to Montreal. Get Your Tickets.
After all, Montreal is where Arcade Fire was founded in 2001.
Montreal is where a professional arrangement turned into true love, as band leader Win Butler met his wife and Arcade Fire multi-instrumentalist Régine Chassagne in the halls of McGill University.
Montreal is where the band engaged in a glorious celebration for the release of its first EP in the winter of 2003.
Montreal is where rock legends united, as Arcade Fire joined U2 in a rousing cover of Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart” during the Irish quarter’s Vertigo Tour in 2005.
Montreal is geographically close to where the six-piece group purchased a defunct church to record their critically acclaimed sophomore album Neon Bible in 2006.
Montreal is who Arcade Fire thanked onstage after The Suburbs claimed the award for Album of the Year at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, thereby besting out popular contenders like Lady Gaga, Eminem, and Katy Perry. The win was a turning point for the band, and cemented Arcade Fire as one of the most distinctive voices in rock.
Montreal is where Arcade Fire filmed the concert footage portion of its half-hour NBC special Here Comes the Night Time in 2013.
Montreal is where the debonair group accepted the prestigious International Achievement Award from the Society of Composers, Authors, and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN) in 2015.
Montreal is where the alternative band secretly previewed six new songs off their highly anticipated fifth studio effort Everything Now in May 2017.
And now, Montreal will be where Arcade Fire rejoices in yet another triumph.
To promote Everything Now, Arcade Fire will return to where it all began with a performance at Montreal’s hallowed Bell Centre. In addition, the band’s Infinite Content Tour will also feature performances at venues such as Quebec City’s Videotron Centre, Ottawa’s Canadian Tire Centre, Edmonton’s Rogers Place, Calgary’s Scotiabank Saddledome, Vancouver’s Pacific Coliseum, Windsor’s Credit Family Union Centre, and Toronto’s Air Canada Centre. Wolf Parade, Broken Social Scene, Angel Olsen, Phantogram, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and Grandmaster Flash will provide opening act duties on various dates.
