See Arcade Fire and Constantines on the same stage
It’s been a good few years for Arcade Fire. When The Suburbs snagged Album of the Year at the Grammys in 2011, hardly anyone outside select indie-rock circles had even heard of the Montreal outfit (remember the “Who Is Arcade Fire!?” Tumblr?). The band has since provided the soundtrack for a Spike Jonze movie, topped the Billboard charts and even insisted upon fancy dress at arena concerts in support of its latest album, Reflektor. This weekend, head to the Amphitheatre for the tour’s penultimate show and second stop in Toronto. It’s sure to feature papier-mâché imposters and plenty of disco-fied dance rock. The recently reunited Constantines, local indie legends for whom Arcade Fire regularly opened once upon a time, will be playing first, so don’t be that person who shows up two hours late. Tickets are currently sold out, but are available on the resale market.
Friday, Aug. 29. $45–$90. Molson Canadian Amphitheatre, 909 Lakeshore Blvd. W., 416-260-5600, canadianamphitheatre.net.
