Arcade Fire's Exclusive Fans-only Gig at Hackney Empire


I was one of the privileged few who were allocated tickets to last night's Arcade Fire gig at the Hackney Empire - their first non-festival performance in the UK in 3 years and a chance for them to test out new material from forthcoming album The Suburbs in front of a crowd of devout fans (including Florence and the Machine). Tickets were only made available to a selection of those who pre-ordered the new album online a few days before the event. Rather than me describe how amazing it was, have a look at the much more eloquent glowing reviews from the BBC, Guardian and Telegraph.

The monster 18-song setlist played out as follows:
Ready to Start
Modern Man
Neighbourhood #2 (Laika)
No Cars Go
Haiti
Empty Room
Rococo
The Suburbs
Suburban War
Intervention
We Used to Wait
Neighbourhood #3 (Power Out)
Rebellion (Lies)
Month of May
Crown of Love
-encore-
Neighbourhood #1 (Tunnels)
Keep the Car Running
Wake Up

Based on the new material presented last night, "We Used to Wait" and "Rococo" are likely to be my favourite tracks from album number three.

"Neighbourhood #1 (Tunnels)":


"Wake Up":

The proliferation of the Internet brought new dimensions to sports betting by introducing the concept of betting agen ibcbet online. Today there is practically no sports or games ibcbet outside the purview of online betting. Since the online platform is a fast track platform and since they odds are different, one should be aware about the basics of betting agen sbobet before they place their first bet.
