Arcade Fire Play Their Longest Show Ever in Minneapolis

Arcade Fire’s Reflektor tour is only two shows old, but the Canadian rockers are already cutting out their own piece of history. Last night at the Target Center in Minneapolis, MN, the band delivered their longest show ever, clocking in at 115 minutes.

While the beginning of the show stuck mostly to the script set on opening night in Louisville, the band did manage to deliver a tour debut of the new cut “We Exist” which blended into the most rock-centric Reflektor tune “Normal Person.” Another tour debut came in the form of “Rococo,” the fifth track from The Suburbs to make it into the set last night.

The band kicked off a triple encore with a cover of Prince’s “Controversy,” much to the delight of the crowd. Originally written on the setlist for the previous show, the band decided to replace it with The Rolling Stones’ “The Last Time.” New song “Here Comes the Nighttime” and live-staple “Wake Up” brought the show to a close.

Arcade Fire’s tour continues on March 10 with a show at The Palace of Auburn Hills in Auburn Hills, MI.

Here’s a look at the setlist from last night:
