Arcade Fire Cover Bo Diddley’s ‘Who Do You Love’ in Chicago
In their first of a two-night stay at Chicago’s United Center, Arcade Fire decided to take a crack at covering one of the greatest bluesmen to ever come through the Windy City.
Last night (Aug. 26), the Canadian rockers kicked off their encore with a near-perfect interpretation of Bo Diddley’s ‘Who Do You Love.’ Check out the performance in the video below.
Diddley wrote and recorded ‘Who Do You Love’ nearly 60 years ago and has been covered by several acts including Santana, the Doors, and Townes Van Zandt. While the fan-filmed footage is from far-away seats, the sound is surprisingly good; it’s obvious for those not in attendance that Arcade Fire nailed the classic blues-soaked tune.
Arcade Fire only have a few dates left on this tour including their final show in Chicago tonight (Aug. 27) and two shows in Canada. Get details on the remaining gigs here.
If you have yet to see Arcade Fire do one of their many covers while on the ‘Reflektor’ tour, don’t fret … check out their performance of Suicide’s ‘Dream Baby Dream’ with David Byrne below:
