Everything about the show was amazing. The opening was unexpected and perfect. The rest was the same. I'll see them again and again.

5.0 star rating Tim Plumer, Jr. from Gorham, Maine


The venue was great (Blue Hills Bank Pavilion)—as was the weather. However, it was Arcade Fire themselves that took the concert to a whole new level (and I don't write that lightly). It obvious that they are in a groove as a result of touring for a year, and every, single song they played was tighter, grander, and just plain better this time around. Plus, they mixed up the set list in some fun ways that true AF fans could truly appreciate. This was my fourth time seeing them, and it was the best of their shows. In fact, I count this among the best shows I have seen. Period. If you can catch them on this leg of the Everything Now tour, do yourself a favor. Go.

I never dreamed Arcade Fire would come close enough to Raleigh for me to see them live. My dream came true. It was an incredible concert from beginning to end! Their energy level was off the charts and the way they all move around any play different instruments was very impressive. Their light show for such a small venue was also great. This was my first concert at Red Hat, but I would go back again for sure.

The greatest live band on the planet. Mic drop.

5.0 star rating Michael from San Francisco, California


This was my 4th Arcade Fire show and another amazing performance. Their live presence both musically and visually is incredible. Great mix of old and new and the set was incredible. Boukman Eksperyans were incredible too - such great energy and amazing sound. The only down side was the DJ in between openers and AF. After about 5 minutes, it became unbearable. Part cheerleader, part clown - he somehow muffled every potential crescendo with strange music that at times felt like I was listening to curated elevator music at the Teletubbies corporate HQ. I'm still puzzled by his prancing around with unmic'd cowbells and maracas for the 6 people in earshot of him. I literally started to question all of my life decisions from what was clearly a demonstration of "torture" art.

The band made the show feel like an intimate experience - it was ELECTRIC and incredible! The fans thank you for killing it - for us!!!! INCREDIBLE!

3.0 star rating Liana from Washington, District of Columbia


Sound was not the best, ALOT of feedback and microphone too close to instruments. Unable to understand most of the vocals and it just sounded like a high school garage band for 80% of the show. Arcade fire and opening brought the energy and participation! They're good but they need a better sound check.
