Arcade Fire lives up to the hype

Arcade Fire really lived up to the hype as their set included everything from multi-colored balls that changed color to thanking (multiple times) organizers for giving them their break Saturday at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

I saw the group back in 2005 during their breakout performance at the Coachella festival (I’ll never forget the energy or thousands of people in attendance who appeared to know much of the group’s material) and it’s amazing to see their growth into Grammy Award winning headliners, which they mentioned onstage.

They went through all their hits from 2004’s “Wake Up” to 2010’s “The Suburbs” while keeping the energy through their more than hour set.
