    Arcade Fire’s finished the first leg of their Reflektor tour with a whole bunch of new covers songs, but are short one giant bobblehead mask. Following their concert in Bridgeport, CT last Tuesday, someone walked off with the oversized paper mache head made to look like guitarist Richard ‘Reed’ Parry. Arcade Fire would like it back.

    The band said in a statement (via BrooklynVegan), “Richy’s bobblehead mask was taken from our show in Bridgeport, CT. This mask is a one of a kind piece that is an essential component to our live show. We have photos of the theft but rather than press charges we would prefer if the person who took it would get in touch with us to return it. Perhaps this is all an innocent mistake and you meant to leave the venue with your own oversized paper mache rendition of Richard Parry’s head? Please contact: info@quest-management.com with any information.”

    Coincidentally, Grantland has published a firsthand account of what it was like to be an Arcade Fire bobblehead at the Bridgeport concert. During that concert, the bobbleheads “covered” John Mayer’s “Your Body Is a Wonderland” before the real Arcade Fire returned to the stage to perform “Normal Person”. Watch video of that moment below.
