The Arcade Fire Wildly popular Canadian indie rockers Arcade Fire have come under some scrutiny as of late for suggesting a formal dress code to attending fans of their world tour, which mostly includes large arena shows, in 2014. The band posted this statement to their Facebook page:

To everyone really upset about us asking people to dress up at our shows... please relax. It's super not mandatory. It just makes for a more fun carnival when we are all in it together. So far these have been the best shows we have ever played.

No word on whether or not the band will be taking their own advice. Arcade Fire released Reflektor earlier this year; you can see those tour dates by clicking below.
