Arcade Fire embarks on its North American arena tour next month and – with the help of its two electronic-leaning openers – it”s sure to be a dance party. The band has selected Dan Deacon and Kid Koala to join it on the tour”s first nine stops. Check out the complete dates and a new video trailer below.
Dan Deacon uses his classical training to compose meticulously crafted electronic music and, during his live shows, gives fans a smartphone app to control light and sound. Kid Koala is a veteran turntablist who has toured with Radiohead, Björk and DJ Shadow.
Arcade Fire”s tour kicks off in Louisville, Ky on March 3, just after it performs in Haiti during Carnival. If you can”t make the tour, don”t miss the band on Jimmy Fallon”s “The Tonight Show” on Feb. 20.
