Arcade Fire to play Belsonic 2017 in Belfast this June
Arcade Fire set for debut Northern Irish appearance this summer, with an outdoor show at Ormeau Park, Belfast on June 13th.
Their fourth album Reflektor was released in October 2013 on Sonovox and welcomed as “a dark disco classic” (The Times) and “an art rock epic” (The Telegraph). Led by title track ‘Reflektor’, the album hit #1 in the Official Album Charts across the UK, Canada, Ireland, Belgium, Portugal and the USA and topped the iTunes charts in 40 countries.
The Arcade Fire’s seminal debut Funeral (2004) was released to wide critical acclaim and featured in numerous Album of the Decade Polls including NME, Pitchfork, Guardian, Mojo and Rolling Stone. Their 2007 follow-up Neon Bible, debuted at #2 in the UK and also the Billboard Hot 100. Both records were nominated for Best Alternative Album at the Grammy Awards following their release.
In 2011 the band won Album of The Year at the Grammy Awards for their third studio album The Suburbs (2010), before going on to win Best International Group and Best International Album at the 2011 BRIT Awards.
