WATCH: Win Butler dubs Montreal 'cream and center of Canada'


Arcade Fire played a hometown show this past Friday as part of the 2022 edition of Osheaga at Parc Jean-Drapeau.

The band was added to the festival lineup as a subsitute to the Foo Fighters who cancelled their tour dates following the death of Taylor Hawkins.

Arcade Fire fans were treated to a mix of older tracks including "The Suburbs", "Neighbourhood #1", "Rebellion" and "Sprawl II" along with songs from their newer album, We, like "Age of Anxiety I", "End of the Empire I-IV" and "The Lightning I-II".

Special moments included a cover of Wolf Parade's "This Heart's on Fire" with Dan Boeckner on vocals and an expletive-laced reminder from Win Butler on how Montreal is the "cream and center of Canada."


The band also announced on Friday that they will be playing Montreal's Bell Center on December 3.
