Arcade Fire Announces Reflektor Tour

Arcade Fire is ready to once again take on a full-fledged tour under its real identity. After performing gigs here and there under the pseudonym The Reflektors, the indie rockers have announced a 28-date North American outing that’s scheduled March through August.

The Reflektors and the official “Reflektor Tour” are named after the Grammy Award-winning band’s fourth studio album. Reflektor was released in late October, marking the second Arcade Fire album to debut at No.1.

Win Butler, Régine Chassagne and the rest of the crew have a few more dates left on the books in 2013 including LIVE 105’s Not So Silent Night in Oakland, Calif., Dec. 7 and the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas in Los Angeles Dec. 8. Plus, they’ll take the stage as The Reflektors at two sold-out gigs in Glasgow, Scotland, at Barrowland Nov. 15-16.

When 2014 trek begins, the band will trade in venues it played as The Reflektors, such as the 1,900-capacity Barrowland and the 3,800-capacity Hollywood Palladium, for much larger rooms including the 19,000-cap Barclays Center in NYC and Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center, which seats 21,000 fans.
