Arcade Fire announce Diplo as supporting act for Big Day Out sideshows
The shows, which will be taking place at Sidney Myer Music Bowl in Melbourne and the Sydney Entertainment Centre, will be Arcade Fire’s first headliners in Australia since 2008.
The band kicked off their Big Day Out tour in Auckland last Friday before heading to the Gold Coast where they didn’t hold back, wowing the crowd with their new hits as well as their classics.
“Arcade Fire transformed the Gold Coast’s Metricon Stadium into a Haitian carnival, channelling their alto egos, the Reflektors, for an exploration of all things fancy dress, sex and disco,” reported MTV Australia.
Diplo will be pumping up the Arcade Fire crowd on the back of his own Major Lazer headlining sideshow, which took place in Melbourne yesterday.
Tickets for the Melbourne show are currently on sale through Ticketmaster, with Sydney available through Ticketek.
Arcade Fire BDO sideshow dates:
SYDNEY – Entertainment Centre – January 22
MELBOURNE – Sidney Myer Music Bowl – January 28
