Arcade Fire Expand Reflektor Tour
Originally slated for a two-night stand at Brooklyn's Barclays Center August 22-23, the band will saddle up for a third show on August 24. Next August also finds Win Butler and company going deep into the great Northeast with a visit to Bangor, Maine (August 20), as well as a new date in Toronto (August 29).
While Arcade Fire has generated grumblings for asking that fans either dress in formal wear or costumes to the Reflektor Tour, to the point that the band had to explain that "it's super not mandatory," a fan across the pond has take the idea to a rather scorching extreme.
Twenty-year-old Inigo Lapwood attended a costume party at Oxford University dressed as "Arcade Fire," which simply entailed him walking around with a homemade and fully functional flamethrower.
"I used it for about ten minutes, and it's not as though I set any of my friends on fire," Lapwood said after his antics forced authorities to shut down the party (via The Telegraph), adding, "I thought about doing the pun 'Sex is on Fire,' but I think that one would definitely be going too far." more on this story
