He's trolled us all.
Even if Reflektor only had two half-decent songs on it, they'll likely play a load of old stuff so all is good.
(In all seriousness this will probably be fucking brilliant)
Arcade Fire always put on great live performances. Will be interesting to see what they play, I'm expecting predominantly stuff from The Suburbs although I think some of the highlights from Reflektor (We Exist and Flashbulb Eyes) could be stunning at Glasto.
Great booking in my opinion. Now Just get Fleetwood Mac on board!!!
that means we might as well count this as a Pixies confirmation as well, imagine if they subbed Arcade Fire?!?!?! (though they'll probably headlined Other which will make a bitch of a clash)
Pixies were another band that i was hoping would be confirmed. A clash with Arcade Fire wouldn't be ideal. I'd still probably go and see Arcade Fire thought to be honest, I'm a big fan of all of their albums. Although I could say the same for Pixies.
and stand by a lot of what I've said but personally I'm excited because if Arcade Fire know one thing... that's how to put on a live show!
Also a collection of their greatest songs is a very strong thought indeed, color me excited.
Personally I really like reflector and they're an incredible live band
That backlash can sod off. And I have a Glastonbury ticket. Ace!
It's not like they haven't been a big "indie" name for some time. What was the "Sex on Fire"-like straw that broke the camel's back, the fancy dress parties?
Also seemed like that with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Stadium Arcadium.
I haven't seen any negative stuff about them at all.
or hasn't read anything posted about them on here since reflektor came out
I've read some DiS bitchings but that doesn't stand up to any proper criticism. Loads of folks said loads of things. It's a great record, flawed in many ways but the high points shit all over the negatives IMO.
