In the wake of—well in the midst of—a second Sunday night main stage closing set at this year’s Coachella festival, Arcade Fire has confirmed two new Los Angeles headline shows, August 1 and 2 at the Forum and one new San Diego headline show, August 5 at Sleep Train Amphitheatre.
Local and Facebook Pre-Sale is April 24th from 10am-10pm PST. General On-Sale for all three new dates is April 25th at 10 a.m. PST.
As with every date on the worldwide Reflektor Tour named for the international #1 album, these two newly announced additions will prove unlike anything Arcade Fire–or any other artist–has ever staged in an arena setting. No two shows are alike, as any given night can find the band shattering the barrier between audience and performer, making red carpet arrivals, joining the audience in pre- and post-show dance competitions and more.
As for the performances themselves, the Reflektor Tour’s dazzling production, multiple stages, captivating visual effects, and sprawling setlists spanning the entire AF catalog plus regular surprises has been generating universal raves, most recently from last week’s Coachella headlining triumph.
