Arcade Fire announces summer tour, shows with Spoon

Making up for almost three years of near-inactivity, Arcade Fire continues to crank back into gear, following up its recently leaked single “The Suburbs” and new album announcement with its first lineup of tour dates since 2007. The band will return to the stage on June 6 with a two-night stand at the Granada Theatre in Sherbrooke, Quebec, followed by a string of festivals—including the previously announced Lollapalooza—and a smattering of East Coast dates before heading to Europe.
