Watch Arcade Fire Play ‘Afterlife’ On the ‘Tonight Show’

By Shannon Carlin

Before watching Arcade Fire’s performance of “Afterlife” on last night’s (Feb. 20) episode of The Tonight Show, make sure you’ve digested your breakfast. There’s a lot of spinning.

For the band’s performance, frontman Win Butler decided to take the reigns and shoot the beginning of the song himself, selfie-style. Butler spins around with the camera revealing each member of his band in their black and white matching outfits and eventually turns the lens on himself for a very up close and personal shot.

Butler ends the performance in the crowd, climbing all over the brand new seats in Studio 6B shouting the line, “Where do we go?” He didn’t go too far though, choosing to serenade the first few rows of the balcony.

Arcade Fire kick off their first official North American tour behind Reflektor on March 6 in Louisville, KY.

The band is also up for Best Score at this year’s Oscars, airing March 2 on ABC, for composing the music in Spike Jonze’s latest movie, Her.
