Arcade Fire to kick off tour in St. Paul
Arcade Fire just announced the first leg of a tour in support of their new album, The Suburbs, and it will kick off right here in Minnesota with a show at Roy Wilkins Auditorium on September 22. While we have expressed our reservations about Roy Wilkins' sound issues before (some bands sound like they're playing in a reverberant tin can), the auditorium housed inside the same complex as the Xcel Energy Center is one of the only non-theater venues of its size in the Twin Cities and therefore one the most suitable for a band of Arcade Fire's stature.
Ticket sale date and price are still TBA, check ArcadeFire.com for details.
