Best way to see Arcade Fire multiple times in a tour is to space out the shows - like those U2 guys their show variations evolve over time rather than switched up every night. That said, I see them two nights in a row next weekend. But, it will have been five months since I saw them in Bridgeport, which was five months after I saw the secret Brooklyn show so I do expect it to feel fresh again even though it's still focused on Reflektor.

totally agree..

I am doing 3 shows in one week. DC show, and 2 Brooklyn shows. Also, saw the philly show a few months ago so it will be cool to see how the show has evolved.

So, those feathers hopping in and out of the frame at the start and throughout belong to me (or rather the party mask I was wearing). I was almost certain they would do a Fugazi cover and super pumped to hear 'Waiting Room.' And it was actually a pretty solid rendition! Of course 90% of the crowd had no clue what the song was and should be ashamed to call themselves DC residents.

Can't wait for this tour to end so every outlet will stop posting a "news" item for every single inconsequential cover they play.

I was back at the soundboard as I had no earplugs, could of been on the right side rail.. However the soundboard was like half way /middle of the floor so even that wasn't bad. Besides.. got to see Regine up front and center for "it's never over".

They didn't do an actual cover at The Gorge. The Reflektors came out and mimed part of Temple of the Dog's Hunger Strike (meh, yawn, etc), and Win threw in a few snippets of Smells Like Teen Spirit earlier in the show.

I FEEL SO CHEATED RIGHT NOW.

I'm hoping for a Cohen cover in Montreal, but not Hallelujah.

For the Brooklyn shows, LCD Soundsystem cover with special guest James Murphy? One can dream. It's not like that guy is doing anything right now . . .

Same here. They played Ca Plane Pour Moi on tape before the encore but that was it.

I would have preferred a Wugazi cover.
