In other Arcade Fire news, frontman Win Butler performed at the Jam the Vote concert at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York Sunday night. During the show, Butler played a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the U.S.A.”
Springsteen’s a fan of Arcade Fire: in fact, in 2007, Butler and his bandmate and wife Regine Chassasgne joined the Boss onstage to perform his song “State Trooper,” and then they launched into the band’s “Keep the Car Running.”
The Jam the Vote concert was held to encourage voter turnout for this Tuesday’s election. You can watch the nearly four-hour concert in its entirety now on YouTube. Butler appears around the 3:15:00 mark.
