The Canadian band made their first UK live appearance in four years at the Camden Town venue, which had been closed for three years for a £70million restoration and redevelopment.
Fans who didn’t manage to secure a ticket to the intimate gig were able to live-stream it via the Amazon Music UK channel on Twitch. Now, the platform has shared a replay of the concert that can be watched on-demand.
Arcade Fire kicked off their 20-song set by playing the as-yet-unreleased ‘Age Of Anxiety I’, which will appear on their upcoming sixth studio album, ‘WE’.
“Hi London, we really fucking missed you a lot,” frontman Win Butler told the audience at the start of the show. Watch Arcade Fire’s performance below.
As part of their second encore – which was not broadcast as part of the stream – Arcade Fire debuted ‘End Of The Empire I-III’ and ‘End of the Empire IV (Sagittarius A*)’ from their new album.
Elsewhere, Arcade Fire dusted off fan favourites such as ‘The Suburbs’, ‘Ready To Start’, ‘Reflektor’, ‘Rebellion (Lies)’ and their first encore closer ‘Wake Up’. You can watch the performance in full above.
