Last night saw Arcade Fire take to US telly, appearing on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to perform two tracks from latest album, ‘Everything Now’.
Before, though, the show’s Twitter account ‘revealed’ a list of demands from the band - which in suitable style included ensuring the front rows were “filled with diehard, young, energetic Arcade Fire fans”, that “no one should speak to band member Richard Reed Parry for any reason” and that host Stephen Colbert “must keep a can of Chemistry energy drink on his desk throughout the taping”.
Colbert actually did partially fulfil that last demand.
Watch the performances below.
