Arcade Fire’s Reflektor tour hit St. Louis on Sunday night, and this time, they covered a song by an actual resident. Over the weekend, the band performed a rendition of Kansas’ “Dust in the Wind” while in… Kansas City, Missouri, leading Win Butler to tell his band, “Guys, that was really beautiful, but that’s a Kansas song and we’re in fuckin’ Missouri.” Well, it’s a lot harder to confuse St. Louis, Missouri with St. Louis, Illinois, especially since the former has brought us such American institutions as Anheuser Busch, 7-Up, and the one and only Chuck Berry. The band paid tribute to the Godfather of Rock ‘n’ Roll with a rollicking rendition of “Roll Over Beethoven”. Watch fan footage below.

Thanks to Jeremy for the tip…
