Keep the car running, baby Canada's heavyweight champion of whimsy and depression is headed to the suburbs.

Arcade Fire's "The Everything Now Continued Tour" will bring the band to DTE Energy Music Theatre on July 7 as one of six headlining North American non-festival dates.



Arcade Fire delighted with their elaborate and boxing-ring themed "Infinite Content" arena tour/spectacle last year. However, this tour is in support of the most divisive album in band's catalog. 2017's Everything Now relies on heavy-handed conceptual nuance, a commentary on consumerism, and the fictitious Everything Now Corporation.

The tour extension follows the tease of a double music video Money + Love directed by David Wilson and staring Toni Collette, and precedes a Saturday Night Live appearance on Saturday, March 17.

Tickets will start at $30.50 and go on sale Tuesday, March 20 at 10 a.m. at 313Presents.com, LiveNation.com, as well as Ticketmaster.com.
