Arcade Fire in Bushwick in October (more by Eric Kayne)
Arcade Fire

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.

The above message was posted to Arcade Fire's Facebook after the internet-wide backlash to their request that you wear "formal attire or costume" to the shows on their upcoming tour.

As discussed, that tour hits NYC on August 22 and 23 at Barclays Center. Tickets go on Live Nation/LN Mobile App presales today (11/21) at 10 AM.
