Mohegan Sun Arena | Montville, Connecticut
The Grammy Award-winning Arcade Fire is coming to burn down the house at Mohegan Sun Arena on Thursday, November 10th 2022 with very special guests, Bush, who will be playing a very special acoustic set! Grab some tickets and get here, this is your only chance to hear the new number 1 album in four countries, WE, live! It’s been a really long wait, 5 long years in fact, and now the wait is finally over, Arcade Fire’s dance-rock indie album is out! And just like every single one of their previous albums, it’s a hit!
Arcade Fire torched the charts with their latest and sixth studio album, WE, coming in at number 6 on the Billboard 200, number 1 on both the Top Alternative Albums, and Top Rock Albums charts as well as number 1 in the UK, Scotland, Portugal and the Netherlands, becoming the band's fourth number 1 charting album, and fifth Top Ten charting album. Fans have waited five long years for this album, but sadly it also marks the departure of long-time member Win Butler. On Twitter, Butler wrote: “Hi friends- I’ve left Arcade Fire. I left at the end of last year after the new record was complete. There was no acute reason beyond that I’ve changed- and the band has changed – over the last almost 20 years. Time for new things.”
The Indie-dance-rock, Canadian band Arcade Fire is husband and wife Win Butler and Régine Chassagne, alongside Richard Reed Parry, Tim Kingsbury and Jeremy Gara. The band's current touring line-up also includes former core member Sarah Neufeld and multi-instrumentalists Paul Beaubrun, Dan Boeckner and Eric Heigle. Each of the band's studio albums features contributions from composer and violinist Owen Pallett. Their second studio album, Neon Bible, won the 2008 Meteor Music Award for Best International Album and the 2008 Juno Award for Alternative Album of the Year. Their third studio album, The Suburbs, won the 2011 Grammy for Album of the Year, the 2011 Juno Award for Album of the Year and the 2011 Brit Award for Best International Album. All five of the band's previous albums have been nominated for Grammy Awards.
