Leading up to the release date of their highly anticipated new album “Reflektor,” Arcade Fire has plotted a handful of one-off shows, and has been confirmed for the 2013 Annual Bridge School Benefit Concert lineup.
On the album’s Oct. 29 release date, the indie-rock titans will perform at a still-undisclosed outdoor location in Los Angeles, as part of MTV Iggy and Intel’s “The Music Experiment 2.0” concert series. Beginning today, fans can win tickets by clicking here and participating in a social media campaign. Arcade Fire has also confirmed an Oct. 24 show at the Little Haiti Cultural Center in Miami.
This year’s Bridge School Benefit, to be held at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, Calif., will also feature performances from Queens of the Stone Age, CSNY, Jack Johnson, fun., Diana Krall and Tom Waits, among others. Arcade Fire will perform on Saturday, Oct. 26 at the annual charity showcase.
There’s also a very good chance that Arcade Fire will be performing at a pair of Brooklyn shows later this week, after posters were found advertising concerts by “the Reflektors” on Oct. 18 and 19. Details and venue locations have yet to be announced.
Arcade Fire has shared some new “Reflektor” song lyrics on its Facebook page. The album follows 2010’s “The Suburbs,” which won the Grammy award for album of the year.
