Last night, Arcade Fire officially kicked off their massive world tour in support Reflektor with a headlining appearance at New Zealand’s Big Day Out Festival. Unlike the intimate warm-up shows played in the days surrounding Reflektor’s release, last night’s setlist was chock full of non-Reflektor material, including “Haiti”, “Rebellion (Lies)”, “Wake Up”, and several songs off 2010’s The Suburbs. They even made good on our request to play “Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)”.

It’s important to note that last night was festival set and presumably a bit shorter than what the band will play when they embark on their North American arena tour this spring. Still, it gives a good idea of what Win Butler is thinking.

Setlist:
Ready to Start
Flashbulb Eyes
Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)
Joan of Arc
The Suburbs
The Suburbs (Continued)
Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)
Afterlife
Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)
Haïti
Normal Person
Keep the Car Running
Reflektor
Rebellion (Lies)
Here Comes the Night Time
Wake Up
