Arcade Fire

Main Stage
Reading Saturday 25th
Leeds Sunday 26th

Vaunting, swirling polyphony, big issues and sentiment from Arcade Fire as displayed on their critically dominant album Neon Bible.

I love these guys and loved the whole set. The sound they produce is unbelieveable, shows what you can do with all those instruments. . . .

Scott Rowlands
Arcade Fire were amazing - they are one of a very select group who actually sound better live than on the album !

I love Arcade Fire and thought they and the Reverend were the best so far. They do something to me this band - sort of mesmerising.I do worry about Win Butler's voice though. It has a great tone but not strength.

Was readlly upset that my faves, Arcade Fire were cut short by the early prog end on BBC3 so didn't get to see them as had to go to work, do hope they gonna be on the red button 2nite!!!

Excellent! Lively and a great range of sounds and instruments. We enjoyed both watching and listening.
