Earlier this month we heard about plans made by Arcade Fire to travel to Haiti to record several performances for a live DVD. Just two weeks after the announcement, they played a secret show, and did just that. Check out details and exclusive footage after the jump.
The Arcade Fire made their secret, exciting appearance in Haiti on March 28 at Port-au-Prince’s Hotel Oloffson. The set went for about 45 minutes and included several of their own hits as well as covers of well-known songs by Cyndi Lauper and The Rolling Stones, just to name a few.
Although the original plan was to film the performance and release a Live From Haiti DVD, band manager Scott Rodger reported no DVD in the works.
