    Yesterday, Arcade Fire’s Reflektor tour hit the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Their setlist featured performances of 19 songs expertly written by Win Butler, Régine Chassagne, Richard Reed Parry, Will Butler, Tim Kingsbury, and Jeremy Gara. Among the highlights: “Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)”, “Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)”, and “Rebellion (Lies)” from Funeral; “No Cars Go” with an a capella intro of “My Body is a  Cage”; the dynamic one-two-three-four punch of The Suburbs tracks “Month of May”, “The Suburbs”, “The Suburbs (Continued)”, and “Ready to Start”; and a whole bunch of songs from the band’s latest LP, Reflektor.

    Oh, and they covered Neil Young & Crazy Horse’s “Come On Baby Let’s Go Downtown”, or whatever.

    But 19 Arcade Fire songs!
