Morrissey’s American tour may be temporary derailed, but fortunately for us, we have Arcade Fire. Tonight, the band played the second of two shows at London’s Earl Court. The previous night they covered Echo and the Bunneymen with Ian McCulloch in tow; this time, however, they paid homage to The Smiths by performing “London” during the encore. Will Butler handled lead vocals. Listen to the replay below (via ArcadeFireTube).

Earlier in the evening, Lorde got to open for her favorite band. Sadly, they didn’t share the stage.
