Watch Arcade Fire perform ‘Unconditional I (Lockout Kid)’ at the Juno Awards

@TomTaylorFO

Arcade Fire’s brooding new album WE has rightfully been drawing plaudits in recent weeks and the band brought a hefty dose of its brilliance to this year’s Juno Awards. 

With the anthem of teenage angst tempered with retrospect, ‘Unconditional I (Lockout Kid)’, the band offer up a message of hope to those finding their feet in adulthood, and that message was smashed home with this live performance. 

With more confetti on the go than a wedding at a shredding factory, the celebratory coming-of-age single was met with fitting fanfare as things took a triumphant turn at the ceremony. 

The band are set to bring such performance out on the road on what they are calling “the definitive Arcade Fire tour” in 2022. They will be joined by Feist for their UK and Europe dates, while Beck will join them in North America.
