Saturday night --- 8/23/2014 --- Arcade Fire Setlist
Ramones

Keeping the CBGB-special-guests-and-covers theme going in NYC, Arcade Fire brought out Marky Ramone to play drums on two Ramones covers during the encore tonight (Saturday) at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The covers were "I Don't Wanna Go Down To The Basement" and "I Wanna Be Sedated". Right before that there was a tribute to the Talking Heads which included "Psycho Killer" playing while a "Stop Making Sense" David Byrne video-head character came out on stage in a suit with a boombox by his side (they've also played with the real David Byrne before). You can see the full night's setlist above.

Marky Ramone started drumming for the Ramones after original member Tommy Ramone left the band in 1978. Tommy, the last living original member of the band, died earlier this summer.

Friday night's Brooklyn Arcade Fire show featured special guest David Johansen of the NY Dolls (as Buster Poindexter). Sunday's show has Television opening, and Arcade Fire promised more Sunday surprises from the stage tonight. Tickets are still on sale.

As mentioned yesterday, Arcade Fire also recently played with Blondie's Deborah Harry.

Check out our pictures from the Friday Brooklyn show. Stay tuned for our pictures from Saturday.

if everyone (artists and fans) saw the Battle for Brooklyn documentary they would never support Barclay's Center and/or its shows and games. what a f-ing uninformed joke this town is.

Does Nassau Coliseum still hold concerts? Shouldn't that be worse than Brendan Byrne Arena?

11:08 you are truly predictably, and historically dumb. you're a white 26yr old who is just having fun now.. but once it starts affecting you.. it will be too late

The only thing more embarrassing than Arcade Fire's big bobble heads is Marky Ramone's wig.

Great show. Ricard Hell on Sunday?

keep the car running and no cars go > month of may and crown of love. and while 'i wanna be sedated' is the better cover, i'd hardly say the ramones were there.

month of may is easily one of their worst songs
crown of love is a snoozer.

Learn all about Marky Ramone & the Ramones in the book;
“ON THE ROAD WITH THE RAMONES”.
Throughout the remarkable twenty-two-year career of the Ramones the seminal punk rock band, Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famers, Recording Academy Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winners and inductees into The Library of Congress' National Recording Registry, Monte A. Melnick saw it all. He was the band’s tour manager from their 1974 CBGB debut to their final show in 1996. Now, in this NEW UPDATED EDITION he tells his story. Full of insider perspectives and exclusive interviews and packed with over 250 personal color photos and images; this is a must-have for all fans of the Ramones.

Month of May was different, harder and loud. Intervention ending with Antichrist was song of the night

Friday was the BETTER show thus far until Paul Simon shows up on Sunday with Chevy Chase.

Nobody's favorite Ramone.

Serious question...have there been non-pro scalpers outside trying to unload tickets at reasonable or under face value prices? I'm seriously considering taking my chances and trying to grab a lucky ticket on the spot.
