Arcade Fire @ United Palace Theater


last night was a great AF show, but not the best I have seen...I was really lucky to get 2nd row seats which made it easy for me to rush the stage...we ended up front and center and had an amazing time...

the band came out and started off strong with black mirror...the crowd was standing thanfully, but they were not allowing us to be close to the stage just yet...during laika richard and will were banging drums together behind the keyboards on stage right...and at one point came to the front of the stage with the mic/megaphone and were screaming and hitting each other...then it almost looked like they were going to wrestle right there cause richard i think slipped and fell and will was still hitting him back...it was hilarious...i really hope someone got a video of that...

neon bible had no one tearing pictures or anything...before ATB win said something like 'people don't/shouldn't go into the music business to be greedy'...that's what i thought i heard...could be wrong...

during power out win first came to the front of the stage with the guitar...and then left the guitar got the mic and went into the frist row...it almost looked like he was standing on one of the chairs in the front row while singing...everyone back on the stage just sang the song...

tunnels was the first song of the encore, but not listed on the offical setlist...everyone seemed to be helping win sing this one...intervention was a great way to end the show....and that was were win said "see you tomorrow, same time, same place"...and smiled!

as for the crowd, their was very little energy at the front for most of the show...people at the front (with some exceptions) were just not into it and it wasn't until the old songs came on that they showed some form of life...when they finally let more people come forward, then it felt like there were actual fans near us...

my pictures are here
