Arcade Fire - Toronto Concert Review

Last night I attended the Arcade Fire concert at Massey Hall. I thoroughly enjoyed the show even though a lot of critics seemed to feel it lacked something special. I stood less than a meter from the stage and didn't think it lacked anything but what do I know, I guess I just didn't have expectations and went to enjoy myself.

I too was there - unfortunately not as close to the stage but really, there are no bad seats in the venue. Over the past decade I must have been to thousands of concerts and the only ones that come close would be Broken Social Scene in Toronto, and possibly Coldplay in Sydney (only because it was a tiny venue). The atmosphere was great, stage decorations were pretty cool - especially the 50's style screens of the band members. I had goosebumps when they first came on stage and they never really went away. Toronto Sun gave the previous nights show a high review except for the sad songs or slow songs but I would have to disagree. Ocean of noise was performed perfectly and watching all 10 band members playing different instruments all at once just blew me away.

Thanks for the comment Dave.

I've seen a ton of good shows as well: Radiohead in Bilbao, White Stripes in Tallinn, etc and this show was up near the top.

I think Arcade Fire just has a little too much hype that it makes it hard for them to live up to it all. Thankfully I usually ignore critics. :)
