Arcade Fire concerned over fan connection

Thursday, 2nd Sep 2010

Playing to huge sell-out audiences has one downturn for Arcade Fire, as they think it leaves them unable to connect with their audience.

As the band celebrate their Reading and Leeds Festival performances and prepare for their UK tour, they spoke to NME about the daunting task of playing to thousands of fans.

"The fear of playing shows the size we're playing shows now is that you can't connect with the audience," said Jeremy Garr, the drummer with the Canadian band.

However, the Rebellion (Lies) performers are hopeful that their two shows at London's O2 Arena will be a great experience for everyone who attends.

"As long as we can play well it'll be a good night," Garr added.

The band claimed the number one album on both sides of the Atlantic last month with their latest release The Suburbs, knocking Eminem's Recovery from the top spot in the UK charts.
