Arcade Fire Crank Up Creedence Clearwater Revival’s ‘Hey Tonight’ in Concert

Subscribe to on

Arcade Fire whipped out a rousing rendition of the Creedence Clearwater Revival classic ‘Hey Tonight’ at their concert last night in Mountain View, Calif.

Lead vocals were served up by multi-instrumentalist Richard Reed Parry, who struggled a bit to reach John Fogerty levels of power, but he still managed to kick out a pretty cool version of the song. You can watch a video above.

On its current tour, the band has been covering songs by artists from whatever city it’s appearing in. This has made for interesting surprises, including songs by Prince in Minneapolis, R.E.M. in Atlanta and Echo & the Bunnymen in London, among many others.

The CCR original first appeared on the band’s 1970 album ‘Pendulum.’ The song also showed up as the flip side to the ‘Have You Ever Seen the Rain?’ single, which turned out to be one of the band’s final hits before calling it quits.

Here’s a reminder of how great they were:
