In the fall, Arcade Fire will be performing an exclusive show in North America to celebrate 20 years since the release of their debut album, Funeral. The show is set to take place at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado – a venue hand-picked by the group. A ticket pre-sale begins this Wednesday, May 8 at 10am MT. General tickets go on sale this Friday, May 10 at 10am.

“To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of Funeral, this fall we will be playing one show in North America, at one of our favorite venues: Red Rocks Amphitheatre on September 16,” the band announced. “We hope you will join us.”

Released on September 14, 2004, Arcade Fire’s Funeral put the future alt-rock juggernauts on the map. The disc cracked the Billboard 200 at No. 123. The hit single “Rebellion (Lies)” hit No. 19 on the UK Singles Chart, and was certified platinum in the band’s native Canada. The album was eventually certified gold by the RIAA. In 2020, Rolling Stone started off their updated list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time with Funeral at No. 500.

In 2022, Arcade Fire released their latest studio album, WE, through Columbia Records. Their first LP in five years, WE was produced by Nigel Godrich (Paul McCartney, Radiohead, U2) along with Arcade Fire members Win Butler and Régine Chassagne. Shortly after Arcade Fire announced WE, co-founder Will Butler revealed that he had left the band.

“I left at the end of last year, after the new record was complete,” he said via his official Twitter. “There was no acute reason beyond that I’ve changed — and the band has changed — over the last almost 20 years. Time for new things.”
