One of the oversized papier mâché masks that Arcade Fire have been using on tour was stolen after a show in Bridgeport, CT last week. The bobbleheads have been a staple in the band’s live shows this year and were seen in the “Reflektor” video. The thief is presumably still at large and you can read a message from the band kindly asking for it back below. Their next show isn’t until March 28 in Mexico City so there’s still time for Richard Reed Parry’s missing mask to find its way back home.
Richy’s bobblehead mask was taken from our show in Bridgeport, CT. This mask is a one of a kind piece that is an essential component to our live show. We have photos of the theft but rather than press charges we would prefer if the person who took it would get in touch with us to return it. Perhaps this is all an innocent mistake and you meant to leave the venue with your own oversized paper mache rendition of Richard Parry’s head? Please contact: [email protected] with any information.
