WATCH: Arcade Fire makes a splash in Hollywood to launch ‘Reflektor’


Montreal rock band Arcade Fire celebrated the official release of its fourth album, Reflektor, on Tuesday night by performing at the foot of the iconic Capitol Records building in Hollywood.

The concert, which went on for more than an hour, shut down streets around the building during rush hour.

Singer Win Butler, dressed in a metallic gold tuxedo jacket, dedicated the track “Afterlife” to Lou Reed, who died Sunday.

The band also made mention of Haiti, home of Régine Chassagne’s parents and the inspiration for Reflektor.

Arcade Fire performed a number of unique shows leading up to the release of the album, including gigs in Miami’s Little Haiti neighbourhood and in their native Montreal.
