Laser Gloves: Watch Arcade Fire Play Fallon #WearableWednesday
Arcade fire have come a long way in the past 20 years, and so have their live shows. In a recent performance on Fallon they showed off some nifty wearable laser gloves! Via Brooklyn Vegan:
Having just played Saturday Night Live last weekend, Arcade Fire returned to 30 Rock on Thursday to appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. They performed WE’s “Age of Anxiety II (Rabbit Hole)” and made it a very clubby experience, with black lights, strobes and network television’s first experience with Régine’s laser gloves. Watch that below.
Arcade Fire will be bringing their laser gloves, giant eye and Beck (acoustic) on tour with them this fall, including a return to Barclays Center on November 4.
