Arcade Fire to bring “Reflektor” tour to Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion in Bangor

Arcade Fire 2The critically-acclaimed Canadian-American indie rock six-piece the Arcade Fire will bring their “Reflektor” tour to Darling’s Waterfront Pavilion as part of the Machias Savings Bank Concert Series, on Wednesday, Aug. 20, in one of the earliest and biggest show announcements in Waterfront Concert history.

The show falls in between their concert at the Comcast Center in Mansfield, Mass., and a three-night stand at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Tickets are $25-$59.50, and go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 13, at waterfrontconcerts.com, on Ticketmaster.com, and at Mark’s Music in Brewer, or by calling 1-800-745-3000.

The Arcade Fire’s fourth and most recent album, “Reflektor,” debuted at number one on the Billboard charts in October. Their last album, 2010′s “The Suburbs,” also hit number one on the Billboard charts, and won Album of the Year at the 2011 Grammys, the 2011 Juno Awards and the 2011 BRIT Awards, as well as winning the Polaris Music Prize. “Reflektor” is a double album, produced by acclaimed artist James Murphy, formerly of LCD Soundsystem, and has been hailed by Pitchfork Media as “a triumph” and by Rolling Stone as “the best album the Arcade Fire have ever made.” It features the fervent, large, lush, orchestral sound the band has always had, a newfound embrace of electronic music, an array of Haitian musicians, and contributions from David Bowie and from DJ Kid Koala.
