Some of the best musical groups in history were formed by talented family members who shared their passion for music with the world. Canadian indie rock band Arcade Fire is one such example of a group with a family nucleus at the center of the band. Formed in 2001 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, a husband-wife duo is at the center of the band with family running deep in this band.
Win Butler and his wife Regine Chassagne guide Arcade Fire along with Win's brother Will Butler, but the group was formed by Win and his friend (and former classmate) Josh Deu. Other members of the group include Richard Reed Parry, Tim Kingsbury, and Jeremy Gara. When the band is out on tour, fans purchasing Arcade Fire tickets will see Sara Neufeld, Owen Pallett, Diol Edmond, and Tiwill Duprate performing along with the band as tour members.
Arcade Fire tickets became an instant hit following the release of the group's debut album, Funeral. The band's debut album was released in September 2004 in Canada and February 2005 in Great Britain, bringing almost instant success and acclaim for the group. The album sold more than 500,000 copies within its first year and was named to numerous Top 10 album listings internationally. Funeral was certified gold in both Canada and Great Britain.
With the release of the group's third studio album, The Suburbs (2010), its star was on the rise and Arcade Fire tickets became increasingly difficult to find. The Suburbs brought Arcade Fire massive critical acclaim and commercial success. The group was awarded a Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 2011, Juno Award for Album of the Year in 2011, and the Brit Award for Best International Album in 2011.
As of 2014, Arcade Fire tickets have been sold for a total of five concert tours. The group's first tour spanned 2003 to 2005, and was conducted largely in support of the band's debut album (Funeral). The Neon Bible Tour took place in 2007 and 2008. The group's third and fourth tours were in support of its third and fourth albums, respectively. The Suburbs Tour (2010-2011) supported the third album, while the Reflektors Mini Tour (2013) supported the group's fourth album.
Currently, the band is out of the road for an extended version of the Reflekotrs Mini Tour. Arcade Fire tickets have been on sale since early 2014 as the group hits the road throughout the year.
