Arcade Fire played a surprise show in New York last night (14 March).

The Canadians were in town to do a live Q&A with director Spike Jonze at the Gramercy Theatre, as part of Spotify’s ‘Fans First’ series, ‘A Conversation With’.

They used the occasion to premiere their ‘Money + Love’ double video – for ‘Everything Now‘ tracks, ‘Put Your Money On Me’ and ‘We Don’t Deserve Love’ – but after the Q&A and screening, the band took to the stage to play a surprise 15-song set.

Billboard reports that: “As the film comes to a close and the end credits roll, the music to ‘Everything Now’ suddenly booms out from the speakers. It was all too clear what would come next. The curtain drops, and there stands Arcade Fire in all its live glory.

“The band dove into ‘Rebellion (Lies)’ next, which prompted Jonze and Wilson to enthusiastically dance around on stage.”
