Wait, Arcade Fire are playing a show in Scunthorpe next month?

This makes perfect sense.
Tonight’s Arcade Fire news has taken a weird turn.

News arrived earlier this evening (15th May) that the band played a secret show in Montreal this weekend, previewing six new songs. We’re expecting a new album this year, so it’s all really very exciting.

But that secret show was so far away. Why can’t they do one this side of the Atlantic. They should do it somewhere really exciting, where we can all go, before their headline slot at the Isle Of Wight Festival next month.

What do you think may be going on, famed Arcade Fire fan site Arcade Fire Tube?


Scunthorpe? That’s silly.


Oh. Right. Scunthorpe. We’re all off to Scunthorpe then?

And just in case that tweet goes awol, here’s a screen grab.

There’s a listing on Bandsintown too. Look!


Update: The date is on the band’s official website. This is definitely happening! Arcade Fire! In Scunthorpe!
