Arcade Fire Headlining Glastonbury 2014
Arcade Fire have confirmed they'll be headlining next year's edition of Glastonbury festival, sharing a set of four upcoming summer dates via Twitter. Apart from a June 27 Glasto show, the post confirmed June 23 Rock in Roma performance, along with June 24 Verona gig and June 29 concert in Dublin. "It's such a communal rite of passage in the UK and there's this communal spirit," said frontman Win Butler. "It'll be at a point of touring when we're scary good. We're super excited to strap on our wellies and let it rip." Kicking off on January 17, Arcade Fire are up for a hectic tour itinerary, keeping the six-piece busy on the road throughout late August. Check out full concert dates and ticket info here. The band's latest studio effort, "Reflektor," saw its release on October 28 via Merge Records. As the fourth record in Arcade Fire opus, it scored a No. 1 spot on both US Billboard 200 list and UK Albums chart.
