I got the reminder from Ticketmaster for my Asheville show.

Does this mean it's really going to happen?

I've just bought my ticket to see them in a festival in Nyon, Switzerland, in July. Bjork will be playing the same night as well. It's going to be so I can't wait!

For me, Arcade Fire was one of those bands. Prior to seeing them for the first time open for U2 in Ottawa I had downloaded some live boots of them in U2. Good but not great. However, the Ottawa performance was good but in Montreal they literally had the crowd in the palm of their hands by the end of their set.

My opinion of them as a live band was enhanced after seeing them in a small venue in February. Truly extraordinary. I'm not very eloquent in describing such things, but suffice it to say, they touched me like very few bands have in the past—including my beloved U2.

Again music is subjective so you'll only have to see them before you can form your own opinion. As for the NPR broadcast, I thoroughly enjoyed it, but I agree, they weren't "ON" that night. That can be attributed to many things, one of which could be they were nervous about being perfect for the listening audience around the world.

All I'm saying is don't judge a book by it's cover. If you can't get into Arcade Fire, great, at least you tried. But give them a chance, at least live. They are fantastic.
Thank you. This was a very helpful post.

martha, you should definitely go see them!

i think for me they're a better live band than an iPod band

not that i've seen them live except for on TV

but everyone i know who's seen them live has been completely blown away

I Read in the Winnipeg Free Press this morning that the Arcade fire are very likely to come to Winnipeg in September.

I'm torn b/c I'm supposed to fly up to San Francisco to see them with a friend on June 2nd, but it looks like I might not be able to make it due to work. However, down here I have no one to go with (I'm the only AF fan in my bunch), so if I get a ticket tomorrow it will have to be a single.

what to do, what to do?
