Photo: Dino Perrucci

Arcade Fire will not be hitting the road for a while after they wrap up their Reflektor tour later this month. Frontman Win Butler told the Los Angeles Times that the group will be “done touring for the forseeable future” following the August 30 tour closer in their hometown of Montreal. According the article, Butler would like to spend time with his family and is inspired to work on new music.

As previously reported, Arcade Fire still have plenty of shows to play before their current tour comes to an end, including two shows in Los Angeles, two in Chicago and a three-night run at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

Actually the Shoreline show was a blast, although Devo cancelled and they had some crappy crappy edm dude open, Arcade Fire played a very fun set, even opened with a devo tune to make up for the last minute cancel…great band great show fun times…yes Jambands.com covers many shitty edm acts and rap and indie pop why i’ll never know, but Arcade Fire are awesome performers, play all their own instruments (and each others) and mix up their setlists…so they belong here

That crappy edm artist was Win Butler himself and this website is called Jambands. Arcade Fire jams and they have every right to be on here. Don’t hate on talent.

I would officially kick the lead singer in the balls if I saw him. Who puts the word “fire” in your bands name ? (Besides earth wind and fire, firehouse (great hair), alexisonfire). Even Canadians hate frogs from Quebec.

Hey Mr. Real, the Butler Brothers are from Texas. I’m from Canada and I don’t hate French-Canadians. You are full of hate and by the way, who calls themselves “real”???
