​This past weekend saw Arcade Fire performing two back-to-back shows at London’s Earls Court, taking the opportunity to offer some special renditions for fans.

​The Friday night show (6 June) saw Win Butler and co invite Echo and The Bunnymen’s Ian McCulloch on stage for a cover of his band’s track “The Cutter”, while the Saturday show included a live take on The Smiths’ “London”. Sadly however, Lorde (who opened for the group) didn’t perform with the band.

Listen to the Smiths cover and watch the Echo one below:
