Published Jun 12, 2014Arcade Fire have been touring with the likes of Dan Deacon and Kid Koala so far in 2014. Now, they've confirmed some of the openers for their their next North American leg in August, and there are some big names along for the ride.
Perhaps the most notable name on the calendar is the Unicorns, whose freshly announced reunion will include five shows (two in Inglewood, CA, and three in Brooklyn).
Another reunited Canadian band, Constantines, will join Arcade Fire on August 29 in Toronto. Arcade Fire are clearly fans of the Cons, since they covered "Young Lions" during a gig not too long ago. This show is good news for fans, since Constantines' reunion schedule has been rather sparse so far.
Other openers of note include Owen Pallett (in Santa Barbara, OR), Spoon (in Chula Vista, CA, and Portland), tUnE-yArDs (in Edmonton, Calgary and Winnipeg), and Dan Deacon (numerous cities).
See the world tour schedule below. Note that not all of the North American shows have confirmed openers yet, so it's possible that more names may be added to the trip.
