Arcade Fire announce Earl's Court date

Arcade Fire have announced plans for a huge UK show set to take place at London's Earls Court on June 6, 2014.

The band revealed the date via a 15-second long video on YouTube. Scroll down to watch the video. Tickets for the show go on sale November 28. Meanwhile, Win Butler has hinted that the band will also play UK festivals next summer.

In an interview with Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2, Butler told fans that they should "get [their] wellies ready" in preparation for the UK festival season next summer, although he refused to give any more concrete details of which events he and his bandmates would be playing.

His comments have sparked speculation that Arcade Fire will play Glastonbury next year. The band recently announced a huge US arena tour to take place in 2014, but fans have spotted there is a gap in their schedule between June 22 and July 30 which could potentially be filled by a spot at Worthy Farm.
