Beck Will No Longer Open For Arcade Fire On North American Tour


Beck will no longer open for Arcade Fire on their upcoming North American tour, according to Billboard. Beck will be replaced by Haitian band Boukman Eksperyans.

Although Beck didn’t reveal his reason for backing out of the tour, his decision comes just months after sexual misconduct allegations against Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler.

Butler has been accused of sexual misconduct by four people. However, the singer claims that the relationships were consensual.

According to a report published by Pitchfork, three female Arcade Fire fans and a fourth person who is a gender-fluid individual who uses they/them pronouns claimed that they had had sexual interactions with Butler when they were between the ages of 18 and 23 that they deemed inappropriate due to an age gap and “power dynamics” between them and the singer.

Earlier, Canadian indie pop artist Feist, who was the opening act for Arcade Fire at two shows in Dublin, Ireland, on August 30 and 31, left the tour tour amid the sexual misconduct allegations.

Arcade Fire’s WE dropped on May 6, 2022, through Columbia Records. The album was produced by Nigel Godrich and band members Butler and Régine Chassagne.

The North American leg of Arcade Fire’s world tour is set to kick off on October 28 at The Anthem in Washington, D.C., and conclude on December 1 at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario.
