Video: Arcade Fire Takes Tram to Their Blackpool Concert

Wearing oversized paper mache heads, the members of the Canadian band ride the public transportation before parading through the street with a Mariachi band.



Arcade Fire, once again, decided to make an unusual arrival to their U.K. concerts. After making a dramatic entrance to their Roundhouse gig in a white limo, Win Butler and his bandmates took the tram to their show in Blackpool on Wednesday, November 27.

They rode the public transportation into the city wearing giant paper mache heads. After getting off the train, they were greeted by fans who donned formal attire, just like what the band requested. The Canadian rockers walked through the town with a Mariachi band who played the title track of their newest album, "Reflektor".

During that night's show, Arcade Fire performed the new material taken from their No. 1 album. But they also presented fans with a cover of "Today Your Love, Tomorrow the World", a song from the Ramones' 1976 self-titled set.

Arcade Fire is set to bring their "Reflektor" tour to North America next year. Kicking off on March 7 in Kentucky, the tour includes stops in Toronto and Ottawa as well as their first headlining show at Denver's Pepsi Center and a two-night stand at New York's Barclays Center.
