Arcade Fire Perform On 'The Tonight Show'

arcade-fireThis week marked a few very special moments in time for The Tonight Show. For starters, it was Jimmy Fallon‘s first week hosting the show, which is pretty monumental all by itself. Second, it was packed with guest performances by some of the industry’s hottest artists, like U2, Lady Gaga, and Tim McGraw. Last night, Arcade Fire brought a little indie rock life to the show with their hit, “Afterlife.” The performance even sported a spectacular light show, courtesy of a disco ball. Check it out below.

WATCH: Arcade Fire Unplugged At Triple J

arcade-fireThere’s something truly beautiful and intriguing about unplugged performances. They’re raw, real, and they offer a new look at bands we’ve already become captivated with. Performing for Triple J in Australia, Arcade Fire put together stripped down versions of “Normal Person” and “Joan Of Arc” off Reflektor, and “My Body Is A Cage” off Neon Bible. Dare I say these versions are just as good if not better than the album versions we’re accustomed to?

Arcade Fire Cover INXS' "Devil Inside"

arcade-fireArcade Fire has had a pretty incredible 2014, and it’s only January. I mean, they were nominated for a BRIT Award, are headlining Coachella, and just generally seem to be on top of the world.

Speaking of, last night while at Sidney Myer Music Bowl, the band covered INXS‘ “Devil Inside.” You can watch a fan recorded performance, and if you’re in the mood for an Arcade Fire/INXS mashup, you can listen to a new one by the Hood Internet below. (more…)
