Arcade Fire Pay Tribute to Hometown Heros on Reflektor Tour
As Arcade Fire move through their Reflektor Tour, the band is taking time to pay homage to musical acts that either hail from the area or have greatly influenced the city. In Minneapolis, the band covered Prince’s “Controversey” and the other night in Detroit, they delivered the Motown classic “Uptight (Everything’s Alright).”
Before the (real) band launched into the Stevie Wonder tune, a fake band played “Superstition” on another stage, further establishing the Motown theme. Win Butler sang the track by the Michigan native with a digital cube over his head displaying the face of former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who is currently serving 28 years in prison for various counts of fraud and racketeering.
