Arcade Fire to Get NBC Concert Special Following 'SNL' Appearance

Arcade Fire to Get NBC Concert Special Following 'SNL' Appearance
The hype keeps on growing for Arcade Fire's new album, Reflektor. A month before it drops on October 29 through Merge, the band will appear on the season premiere of Saturday Night Live on September 28. This will be followed by a concert special on NBC.

This 30-minute show will air immediately after the episode of SNL. Beyond that, we don't know much about concert, such as if it will be live or pre-recorded, and if it will happen on the SNL stage or at a separate venue. In any case, indie rock fans might want to clear their schedules on that night.

Judging by accounts surrounding Arcade Fire's recent live sets, they are likely to play lots of new material. In the meantime, watch the music video for "Reflektor" below.

Thanks to Consequence of Sound for the tip.
