Arcade Fire are nothing if not unseriously serious. When they announced their Reflektor tour last year, the band also told fans that formalwear or costumes would be necessary to get into their shows. After the upset that mandate caused, Arcade Fire noted that their dress code request isn't actually mandatory, but it's a hell of a lot more fun if crowds get into their finest or funkiest ensembles.
Pop star fans do it all the time -- like Gaga's Little Monsters. Plus, if bands like GWAR can get their fans to dress up and get spattered in gross stuff, then Arcade Fire should be able to do it, too. (Sans the spattering.)
Now that we've gotten that out of the way, we've got some sartorial inspiration for the show -- whether you're into making costumes, formalwear, or just going low-key.
