EDMONTON – Montreal band Arcade Fire may have taken some heat when it first instituted a dress code of “formal attire or costume” for its current tour, but Edmontonians seemed to embrace the challenge Monday night.

Rachelle Gallant was one of the thousands concert-goers at Rexall Place who didn’t mind meeting the request.

“I think it’s intriguing to get people more involved,” she said. “You have something in the closet you don’t find yourself wearing, then why not?

“Because everyone’s going to have something different on, no one’s judging and everyone’s going be applauding and high-fiving. So it’s enjoyable all around.”

Arcade Fire plans to take a break from touring after performing in its hometown this month.

The group is set to perform the final show of its Reflektor tour on Aug. 30 in Montreal.

“Then we’re done touring for the foreseeable future,” singer Win Butler told the Los Angeles Times.
