Arcade Fire have issued a statement following the negative uproar regarding their mandatory dress code for upcoming tour dates
To everyone really upset about us asking people to dress up at our shows… please relax. It’s super not mandatory. It just makes for a more fun carnival when we are all in it together. So far these have been the best shows we have ever played.
See you soon.
There are no Vancouver dates scheduled on the tour yet, but the Seattle & Edmonton dates certainly open up room for speculation regarding SquamishValley Music Festival happening August 9th and 10th.
