Bowie helps fuel the Arcade Fire

Published: 2005-09-19
It seems that Montreal's the Arcade Fire is growing hotter every second.

On Friday, the band was joined by rock legend David Bowie for their encore at Central Park's Summer Stage in New York City. This is the second time in as many weeks that Bowie has appeared during one of their shows.

Together, they churned out a duet-version of the Arcade Fire's "Wake Up." A week earlier, the two performed "Wake Up" at Fashion Rocks, a gala entertainment special celebrating the best in fashion and music.

The band will return to Canada at the end of the month, but there's no word on whether Bowie will accompany them north of the border.

In November, fans can also catch the Arcade Fire live with U2 during their Ottawa and Montreal tour dates.
