This fansite informs us that another favourite of ours, the Arcade Fire, will be opening for U2 at three of their Canadian concerts this fall. Not entirely sure how that will work out with U2’s favourite opening song of late. Will they get Arcade Fire to play Wake Up and then in a puff of smoke swap bands and have it seque into Vertigo? Only one way to find out… Arcade Fire will supposedly support U2 at Ottawa on the 25th of November and their hometown of Montreal on the 26th and 28th of that same month.
Yet another superb band to be added to the ever growing list of U2’s support acts. We’ve been very impressed with their choice so far. The Killers, Franz Ferdinand, Snow Patrol, Interpol, The Kaiser Chiefs, Doves, Starsailor… it doesn’t get much better than this.
