Arcade Fire to play Hyde Park for one night only!

After their recent triumph at the Brit Awards now seems like a good time for the Serviced City Pads blog to highlight a special show by the acclaimed Canadian art rockers Arcade Fire. The group, who took home the gongs for Best International Group and Best International Album, will be playing London’s Hyde Park on Thursday 30th June 2011. This will be one of only three UK gigs on their European tour beginning in Germany in June.

On receiving their awards Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler cited the huge influence that British musicians such as David Bowie and Joy Division have had on the band’s sound. The Hyde Park concert, along with dates in Edinburgh and Manchester, will see the band returning to the home ground of many of their favourite artists and a place where they now enjoy a devoted following thanks to their incredible live performances over the years. In promotion of the latest album “The Suburbs” these concerts should also see the crowd-pleasers from their first two albums “Funeral” and “Neon Bible” also get an airing. From the soaring “Wake Up” to the downbeat “My Body Is a Cage” this is a group with an incredible back catalogue and this London date should be something special for anyone lucky enough to be there.

The support acts for this show are the fellow Brit Awards success story Mumford and Sons, who have experienced a stratospheric rise over the last two years thanks to the quality of their album “Sigh No More” which won them the prestigious Best British Album award. They will be joined by Beirut, a band famous for their quirky folk that incorporates Balkan influences, and up and coming guitar band The Vaccines.
