Arcade Fire End Final ‘Reflektor’ Concert with Wolf Parade Cover

Last night (Aug. 30), Canadian rockers Arcade Fire wrapped up a 74-night worldwide tour in support of their fourth studio album, ‘Reflektor.’ As they did 34 nights before, they included a cover in celebration of the city they were in; the final night of the tour found them in Montreal, so they performed ‘I’ll Believe in Anything’ by indie rock act Wolf Parade. Check out the performance in the above video.

Wolf Parade formed in Montreal and released three full-length LPs, all on Sub Pop. ‘I’ll Believe in Anything’ is the ninth track on their debut record, ‘Apologies to the Queen Mary’ and was released as an official single in 2006.

Last night’s cover isn’t the first instance of the two bands’ worlds colliding; on Arcade Fire’s song ‘Wake Up,’ Wolf Parade’s Arlen Thompson handled drumming duties, and three tracks from ‘Neon Bible’ feature former member Hadji Bakara on synthesizers.

The night before Montreal (Aug. 29), Arcade Fire were in Toronto and chose to cover a song they recently did in Chicago — but for different reasons. While they did Bo Diddley’s ‘Who Do You Love’ in the Windy City because that’s the town the bluesman called home, they performed Ronnie Hawkins’ 1963 cover of the tune while in Toronto due to Hawkins’ place in Canada’s Walk of Fame.

If you’ve missed out on some of the band’s exceptional covers, make sure to check out their renditions of tunes by Mavis Staples, Buster Poindexter, Suicide and more:
