    Arcade Fire’s 2014 Reflektor tour featured plenty of highlights, including more than 35 (!) different live covers of artists like Prince, The Rolling Stones, Wolf Parade, and Boyz II Men. Another special moment on their global trek came during a stop in Haiti, a country whose music and culture served as a major influence on the band’s fourth studio album.

    There, Win Butler & co. performed a stripped-down version of Reflektor highlight “Here Comes the Night Time”. Arcade Fire were joined by local musicians and folks dressed up in celebration of Haiti’s Carnival season.
