Strike a light - Arcade Fire to spark up Hyde Park for summer 2011 concert with huge support
It's funny how some bands keep things quiet - head over to Arcade Fire's minimalist website, click on 'new shows' and, apart from a few overseas bobbins, nothing about coming to London (as yet).
It's no secret though - it was on the front of the Metro yesterday so yes, Arcade Fire are coming to London's Hyde Park on 30th June, tickets will be on sale this coming Friday at 9am and yes you really should think about going - tickets will start flying out, trust us. Mind you, with a capacity of over 50,000, you'd hope they wouldn't sell in seconds (probably minutes). The price for tickets will be £48.50.
Their support will be no less mouth-watering - Mumford and Sons have gathered enough of a fan-base to be an attractive proposition and they are joined by the not dissimilar Beirut (add in more French accordion, take away the rockier elements) and the band of the moment (apart from all the other bands of the moment) The Vaccines, who themselves will be touring soon (see our special article about that!). All three have an established live sound.
Quite a line-up and there could be further additions in due course. Either way, it isn't often you get "The Suburbs" coming to Central London, so dig deep for Friday!
