Screen Shot 2017-07-07 at 09.20.00Last night Arcade Fire played a magical show at Manchester’s outdoor Castlefield Bowl.

On a warm and balmy evening the band and audience came together to create one of those truly special evenings which they ended with a rousing singalong and touching version of the Joy Division classic Love Will Tear Us Apart which was in tribute to the Manchester music that they claimed as a special influence on them and also in the spirit of the city after the bomb.

It’s a truly touching and imaginatively powerful version of the classic song and climaxed a thrilling show in one of LTW’s favourite venues.
