Arcade Fire played with Bruce Springsteen
As pointed out by "Anonymous", Arcade Fire joined Bruce Springsteen on stage last night (Oct 14, 2007) at Scotiabank Place in Ottawa, Ontario. According to the official setlist posted on Bruce's site, the encore was something like this:
Girls In Their Summer Clothes
State Trooper (with Arcade Fire) (Tour Premier)
Keep The Car Running (with Arcade Fire)
Born To Run (with Arcade Fire)
Dancing In The Dark
According to Pfork tipsters though, Arcade Fire did not actually play on "Born To Run".
So, just to recap....
* Arcade Fire also played with David Byrne
* And David Bowie
* And U2
* And now Springsteen
* Neon Bible was influenced by classic Springsteen
* Bruce Springsteen hung with The National
* And played with the Hold Steady
* Lou Reed does not hang with any of these people, but he does like the Killers
* And the Killers' last album was also influenced by Springsteen
Eventually some actual pictures and video from last night's Bruce show will turn up. Until then, I'll be entertaining myself by matching up the following two videos....
Bono and Bruce Springsteen #1
