Arcade Fire is officially returning to the stage this summer as they headline NOS Alive in Portugal (July 9) and Bilbao BBK Live in Spain (July 7-9). According to a press release, these will be the only European headline festival dates for the band this year. The NOS Alive festival is particularly noteworthy as they are headlining alongside Radiohead.
The band has also confirmed a benefit show on February 19th at Montreal’s Society for Arts and Technology in which they’ll perform alongside David Byrne, Saul Williams and The Office’s Rainn Wilson. The proceeds will go towards KANPE, the charity for Haiti co-founded by Régine Chassagne.
No word as of yet for any North American tour dates. Stay tuned for updates.
