Arcade Fire, Foreigner, Oh Wonder, Beck announce concert dates for Edmonton

Canadian indie rock giants Arcade Fire will bring their "Infinite Content" North America Tour to Rogers Place this fall.

The band, which consists of Win Butler, Will Butler, Regine Chassagne, Jeremy Gara, Tim Kingsbury, and Richard Reed Parry, will be in Edmonton on October 11. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, June 9 on livenation.com. Ticket prices range from $35, $45, $60 and $95, plus service charges.

The tour will make its way through North America starting September 5 in Quebec City. Arcade Fire announced Thursday they will be releasing their fifth studio album, titled Everything Now, on July 28.

Tickets go on sale Friday for Foreigner, performing at the Northlands Coliseum on Oct. 12 on its 40th Anniversary tour.

“I can’t express the gratitude I feel when fans share stories of how our songs have been woven into their milestones and memories over the years. I had so many great times with Foreigner in Canada and I look forward to bringing the band back here for our 40th anniversary tour,” founding member and lead guitarist Mick Jones said in a news release Monday.

Tickets range from $69.50 to $199 (plus applicable service charges) and will be available online at www.jeffparrypromotions.com/foreigner.

VIP packages will be available for $201.50 (plus applicable service charges) and will include a Foreigner tote bag, an autographed limited edition CD, a photo with the band, a VIP limited edition laminate and a $10 coupon toward merchandise at the show.

The 10-date tour will open Oct. 11 in Calgary and finish on Oct. 22 in Abbotsford, B.C. The tour will feature a companion album, a new career-spanning compilation titled 40 that features 40 hits from 40 years recorded between 1977 and 2017. A double-vinyl version that features 23 songs will be released on June 2.

Tickets go on sale Friday, June 9, for London, England-based alt-pop duo Oh Wonder who play the Winspear Centre on Sept. 8th.

Consisting of Josephine Vander Gucht and Anthony West, the duo released their debut album titled Oh Wonder in September 2015 and followed it up this spring with their second self-produced release dubbed Ultralife.

Beck is coming to Edmonton. The cult-turned-mainstream superstar and Grammy winner plays the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium on Aug. 22.

Tickets go on sale June 2 at 10 a.m. at all Ticketmaster locations & Tickmaster.ca. They range in price from $59.50 to $69.50.

The song Loser started out as a rejected demo but went on to become a massive hit from his 1994 album Mellow Gold. His 1996 album Odelay further cemented Beck’s unusual place in the music world with songs like Devil’s Haircut and Where It’s At. He’s recorded a dozen albums, including Grammy’s 2015 Album of the Year Morning Phase, and is set to release another this year.
