Arcade Fire were joined by none other than David Byrne for their final intimate show at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom. They performed a cover of John Lennon and Plastic Ono Band’s “Give Peace A Chance.” This is the fouth time Byrne has joined Arcade Fire, with the previous appearances taking place twice in 2005 and again in 2014.

The performance was Arcade Fire’s fourth and final consecutive show at the New York venue. All shows were announced at the last minute to benefit Ukraine, which frontman Mike Myers discussed with the crowd last night.

After Arcade Fire performed “Wake Up,” they debuted another new track, “Unconditional I (Lookout Kid).”

The band is gearing up for their upcoming record, WE, which is out May 6. Even though he worked on the record, founding band member Will Butler announced over the weekend that he left the band at the end of 2021. They released “The Lightning I, II” last Thursday.
