Arcade Fire coming to Sweden!!

Arcade Fire's awesome manager Scott Rodger has confirmed the band is coming to Sweden. An announcement should be made early next week as to where and when. A Stockholm date is however ruled out.

I'd say the festival Way Out West in Gothenburg is a good bet.

*Edit*
Just to clarify: I'm only guessing Way Out West could be where they'll play based on their schedule and a few other things, but there are numerous other possibilities. Not even sure it's a festival date.

Om du har rätt angående Way out West så är min lycka gjord, två och ett halvt år sen sist!

In reviews they have been called "Arcade Fire on acid".

I'm just guessing. But WOW certainly looks like a possibility.

Thanks Vera! Sounds a lot like Los Campesinos.

Lucky Joel! Bet they're gonna play Sweden before the Canadian west!

I really doubt we're gonna see them here soon...

Been a long time since my heart rushed like that when I found out the news. Can't wait to find out what their plans are.

Oh and hang in there!

P&L just released Vampire Weekend, so I think we can rule out Peace & Love now! Leaves nothing but WoW <3

Yeah, if it's a festival date I have a hard time picturing them playing anywhere else than Way Out West.

There's a good chance though it might be an outdoor show they're playing on their own (not a festival show). I know they're currently looking for outdoor locations in other countries.
