TORONTO – Following the release of their sixth album “We” on Friday, Montreal band Arcade Fire announced a world tour scheduled for later this year.
This will be the Grammy-winning group’s first tour since 2018, with tickets going on sale May 13.
It kicks off in Dublin in August and will make its way through Europe and North America, with a final stop in Toronto in December.
Other Canadian stops include Edmonton and Vancouver.
Canadian singer-songwriter Feist will join Arcade Fire on all UK and European dates, while Beck will perform for all North American dates.
It’s an important month for the band, who will also perform this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” and the Juno Awards on May 15 in Toronto.
The group will be missing one original member – co-founder Will Butler announced in March that he was leaving the group late last year.
