Jon Stewart introduced the frontman of last night’s musical act on “The Daily Show” as such: the “kid in high school who protected me from bullies.”

Win Butler of Arcade Fire towered over Stewart as “The Daily Show” host peppered him with softballs. It was revealed that part of the Canadian band’s success is that, “We try to… be… nice… people.”

Well, OK, then. The band played a better-than-nice pair of songs from their newly crowned No. 1 album “The Suburbs,” “Ready to Start” and “Month of May,” the latter being a web exclusive.

Less than 12 hours later, the band has announced a new string of North American tour dates, below. They just headlined Lollapalooza, are playing Toronto tomorrow (Aug. 14) and then head overseas for festival and arena dates. The new stops are for September and October.
