After their underappreciated Oxegen set and the recent release of their third full length album 'The Suburbs', Canadian indie ensemble Arcade Fire are set to visit Dublin as part of their European tour in December.

According to the band's myspace page, they will play The O2 on December 5th. Ticket prices have yet to be announced, though the Irish Times' Jim Carroll is reporting €73, much to the dismay of his many readers, who think that even with Vampire Weekend supporting (unconfirmed) that's far too high a price. Other sources, however, are quoting something closer to €50 or €60.

As soon as the show is officially announced, we'll bring you more details of on sale times etc right here.


It's official! Vampire Weekend and Devendra Banhart will be Arcade Fire's special guests at The O2 on Sunday December 5th. Tickets are a pricey but not so exorbitant €55.80 plus booking fee, and go on sale from ticketmaster and usual outlets next Friday August 20th at 9am.
