Arcade Fire Played 'Back to the Future' Theme in Tribute to Star Michael J. Fox
Arcade Fire played a live cover version of the "Back to the Future" theme as a tribute to the movie star Michael J. Fox (aka Marty McFly).

The band played Huey Lewis & the News' song "Back in Time," which was written for the 1985 movie, during their show in Edmonton in Alberta, Canada last night (August 11), which is the city Fox was born in. Below, you can watch a fan-shot footage, courtesy of Consequence of Sound (via NME).

The cover version of "Back in Time" is a part of the band's covers series, that goes on during their "Reflektor" world tour. Arcade Fire have already covered Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit," Dead Kennedys' "California Uber Alles," Harold Faltermeyer's theme from the movie "Beverly Hills Cop," "Axel F" and a rendition of Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Hey Tonight" to name a few. The band also covered the songs from the Smiths, Echo and the Bunnymen, INXS and more. Every cover song was by the artist local to the city the band was playing in.

The band's fourth studio album, double-disc effort "Reflektor," was released in 2013.
