Arcade Fire Apologizes for Being Canadian in Gold-Washed ‘SNL’ Appearance

Arcade Fire appeared on Saturday Night Live for the fifth time this past weekend, rocking out to “Creature Comfort” in some of the flashiest attire the show’s soundstage has seen.

It was a typically lively and bombastic performance, but the band flexed another muscle later in the show by appearing in a sketch where they tap into their Canadian roots a little (everyone in Arcade Fire, except Win Butler, is from Canada). As you can see, the group played to certain Yukon stereotypes.

The band has announced a world tour for this coming summer. It will begin April 6 and run for 33 shows before stopping in Copenhagen August 10.

For their second performance of the night, Arcade Fire opted for “Put Your Money On Me,” set amid a bunch of casino lights and slot machines. The SNL sets are a far cry from the group’s typical huge power plays, but trust us, they still bring plenty of theatrics. Check it:
