Arcade Fire with Tune-Yards
Saturday at Starlight Theatre. The show is sold out.
Arcade Fires previous Kansas City show, in April 2011, topped many best-concert lists that year. This time, the seven-member band is touring on Reflektor, its most-recent album, and one that requires a larger ensemble of musicians. From a review in the National Post of a recent two-hour Toronto show: Win Butler and his crew having grown to include a horn section, Haitian drummers and strings courtesy of local enfant terrible Owen Pallett and Sarah Neufeld debuted Arcade Fire: The Arena Rock Version in Canada, and what could have been a cringe-worthy romp of a once mighty juggernaut was proven a necessary evolution for the last survivors of Canadas indie rock revolution.
