Come closer, dear music fans
As Jaime so cleverly pointed out while sharing his Arcade Fire experience with you, it is obvious that Win Butler enjoys performing up close and personal when it comes to his loving audiences. In a recent interview with NME, Win praises U2 for keeping their performances intimate even while performing to sizeable numbers. "The U2 thing was kind of interesting just because the way their stage is designed, the crowd is right there - there isn't a huge gap or anything. And it was actually more intimate than a lot of club shows, because the people are right there. They've done it for so long that it's really well designed. You can play a crappy show in a 100-person room, and you can play a crappy show in a 15,000-seat room. You just have to make the most of whatever situation you're in." Arcade Fire supported U2 during their 'Vertigo' world tour back in 2005 during their Montreal dates and before hitting the stage during their US appearances came out to 'Wake Up.'
