Arcade Fire Tell Fans to 'Relax' Over 'Reflektor' Tour Dress Code
Arcade Fire have issued a statement telling their fans to "relax" about the controversial dress code they have issed for their upcoming "Reflektor" world tour dates, Gigwise reports. The band caused a stir and split opinion when they asked gig-goers to come to their upcoming arena shows in formal attire or fancy dress. However, now the band have taken to their official Facebook page to remind fans that it is not mandatory, but only adds to the "fun carnival atmosphere."

The news comes after Win Butler sparked speculation that they may be headlining Glastonbury Festival next year, after dropping a heavy-handed hint on Jo Whiley's BBC Radio 2 show, when they asked about their touring plans for next summer. "Get your wellies ready," said frontman Win Butler - before Jo Whiley went on to fuel rumours about Glasto by adding: "The wellies have been bought for a certain UK festival - we know the one that has quite a reputation for rain and welly-wearing ... we shall leave it at that." Last night, the band announced a massive show at London's Earls Court for June next year. Watch the trailer below. Notably, Earls Court is also due to be demolished for redevelopment in the not-too-distant future. Will Arcade Fire be the last major act to play there?
