the Billboard Charts this week, sold a ship-load of vinyl and played the Daily Show last night. Now the Montreal indie gods and goddesses have announced another slew of North American tour dates- Including several Canadian dates.
Touring to promote their very fine Suburbs release Arcade Fire will kick off the next leg of their North American tour from St. Paul, MN on September 22nd before portaging (because that's how Canadian's roll) through Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary and Vancouver on their way to Mexico.
The band will play a series of European shows before and after those North American shows. Those dates are available at the band’s official website here.
Arcade Fire play Toronto Island tomorrow (August 14th) with Janelle Monáe and the Sadies.
