EMI Petition Arcade Fire To Tour Australia

Written by Barnaby Smith on February 22, 2011

Proving that record labels sometimes do really have fans’ interests in mind, EMI Australia have taken the surprising step of launching a petition aimed at getting Arcade Fire to tour Australia.

Signed to EMI, the Grammy Award-winning Canadians recently announced a lengthy world tour that will take them across the US and Europe, but have so far neglected to included Australia in their plans. The label have therefore set up a Facebook page (not a real petition then, with knocking on doors and hanging around outside supermarkets) for fans to get behind a push to bring the seven-piece to these shores.

Arcade Fire have been to Australia just once before, when they toured in early 2007, including an appearance at Big Day Out. At time of writing a grand total of 130 people want Arcade Fire to come down under, which will just about cover the cost of the tofu in their rider.
