Arcade Fire “Reflektor Tour” at the Villafranca Medieval Castle
Finally, the long awaited “Reflektor Tour” signed Arcade Fire has arrived. In Italy, it is a double date, first at the Capannelle Hippodrome, Rome – ROCK IN ROMA and the second on Tuesday June 24 at 9.30 PM, in the fabulous Villafranca Castello Scaligero.
A colourful and varied group, formed in Montreal by Win Butler and his wife Régine Chassagne plus a mix of the most diverse musicians.
In 2004 they released their debut album “Funeral”, then in 2007 the second album “Neon Bible” placed them definitely among the most popular bands. Also, during this period Butler and Chassagne were called on stage by surprise by Bruce Springsteen and they played two songs with him including their fabulous “Keep The Car Running.”
The final and international consecration however, came with “The Suburbs” (2010), their third album, which earned a Grammy Award as best album of the year, as well as winning 2 Brit Awards.
So far, the group made a mixture of indie rock and several other instruments, such as strings, violins, piano and harp with texts written in both English and French.
The fourth album “Reflektor” changed the cards on the table, adding something special to the Classic sound of Arcade Fire.
The double album immediately positioned itself as one of the most awaited and acclaimed of the year, created with the classic sound of Arcade Fire, combined with Caribbean rhythms and dance influences; it was the result of a trip to Haiti. It was an attempt of a renewal of the band at the peak of its popularity, but who never stops and never complies with the norm.
One last curious thing before giving the probable lineup of the concert …
Arcade Fire managed to win over some celebrity admirers such as David Bowie (who also lends his voice to the chorus in a song on Reflektor) and others such as Bono, Voxe as well as Chris Martin have often participated in gags and interludes with the band. Bono appeared masked in the video of Here Comes the Night Time, while Chris Martin performed as a DJ, also masked, during a recent London showcase of Arcade Fire. Not bad right?
Here is the probable yet not definite lineup of the “Reflektor Tour 2014″
