Arcade Fire on 8/5: Tickets Are Still Available! Be a Part of History!

August 3rd, 2010


Tomorrow’s Arcade Fire show at Madison Square Garden is sold out, but tickets remain for Thursday’s show. And you can help make music history because this Thursday marks the launch of UNSTAGED, an original live-music series from American Express. There will be a high- quality music stream, but there’s also much more because UNSTAGED will connect the online audience to the live show in some pretty interesting ways: You’ll be able to choose your camera angles, vote on songs and take part in digital “happenings,” which will connect the fans and the artist through creative ways.

The series kicks off this Thursday at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT with a live stream of Arcade Fire directed by none other than Terry Gilliam (Time Bandits, Brazil, Twelve Monkeys and, of course, the American guy in Monty Python). Learn more at http://youtube.com/ArcadeFireVevo. Sounds pretty cool, right? And not to get all Ron Popeil on you, but wait, there’s more:

“SHARE YOUR SUBURBS” PHOTO PROJECT Be part of the show. In support of Arcade Fire’s new album, The Suburbs, out today, everyone (including you) can upload pictures of their suburbs—front porches, back roads, empty parking lots, you name it. The band will feature their favorite submissions onstage during their live performance. Share Your Suburb here.

“ASK ARCADE FIRE” TWEET Q&A Have some burning questions for Arcade Fire? Tweet the band using the hash tag #amexarcadefire and they’ll respond during a special preshow Q&A before their performance.

Submit photos and questions to the band by 10 a.m. tomorrow for your chance to be part of this unique experience, and remember tickets are still available for the 8/5 show.
