In Mid-Gig Newsbreak, Arcade Fire Swears Off New York ‘For A Few Years’

“I know we come to New York a lot, but this is going to be the last time for a few years,” Win Butler told the crowd at Randall’s Island during their performance there yesterday. “So let’s have a good time tonight.”

Some reports of ‘boos’ from the crowd did not seem to detract from the fan frenzy at the show, for which The Arcade Fire shared a bill with local favorites LCD Soundsystem (and also Les Savy Fav and Blonde Redhead.)
