London, the B-side to 1987's Shoplifters of the World Unite, featured Will Butler on vocals and was a solid, hard-driving rendition of the Smiths favourite. The Cutter was less of a cover, given the band were joined on-stage by Echo frontman Ian Mcculloch

It was a relatively star-studded night in London, with songstress of the moment Lorde supporting the Canadian outfit. The Royals singer is a noted fan of Arcade Fire and recently told Rolling Stone, "They've been my favorite band since a guy who was kind of mean and kind of my friend put The Suburbs on my computer one day after school. It was a superhot day; my hair was wet from the pool. I was 13. I still remember that day."
