Last night Arcade Fire were musical guests on Saturday Night Live where they played 2 songs and followed with a 30 minute concert special that included 3 more. The special was titled “Here Comes the Night” and aired on NBC immediately following SNL.
On SNL, the band played the album’s title track plus debuted the song “Afterlife”. In the post-SNL special the band debuted three new songs: “Here Comes The Night Time”, “We Exist”, and “Normal Person”.
The special opened with giant trippy masks and the band dancing in the streets. There was also choreographed audience participation and celeb cameos from Bono, Rainn Wilson, Zach Galifianakis, Ben Stiller, Michael Cera, James Franco, Aziz Ansari, Eric Wareheim, and Bill Hader.
