Arcade Fire to play Neil Young's Bridge School Benefit Concert

Arcade Fire will perform at this year's Bridge School Benefit Concert, organised by Neil Young.

The Montreal group, who release their fourth album Reflektor on October 29, will join Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Queens Of The Stone Age and Tom Waits at the event, which takes place on October 26 and 27, 2013 at Shoreline Amphitheatre, Mountain View, California.

Arcade Fire have also announced another live appearance, at Miami's Little Haiti Cultural Center on October 24. Tickets go on sale at 10am EST tomorrow (October 16).
