Arcade Fire have announced the latest gig in their run of shows to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their seminal debut album Funeral.

The art-rock giants will play the album in its entirety at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on July 4, with support from Warmduscher.

A ticket-presale will kick off on Wednesday (April 17) at 10am GMT, ahead of a general sale this Friday at 10 am. You can buy tickets here.

The newly announced show comes after the band announced they would play a “limited number” of shows to celebrate their acclaimed 2004 debut.

Their last album came in 2022’s WE, although the release and touring of that album was largely overshadowed by sexual misconduct allegations faced by frontman Win Butler.

An in-depth investigation by Pitchfork saw Butler accused of sexual misconduct by four people. He claimed that all contact with the accusers was consensual and denied the allegations; he has also been backed by his wife and bandmate, Regine Chassagne, who said that Butler “lost his way and he has found his way back. I love him and love the life we have created together.”
