Watch Arcade Fire Cover Suicide's "Dream Baby Dream" With David Byrne In Brooklyn

To cap off their three-night stint in Brooklyn, Arcade Fire brought out a Grandpa Munster-looking David Byrne for a cover of Suicide’s “Dream Baby Dream.” Byrne has performed live with the band before — in 2005, he joined them on stage at Irving Plaza to sing the Talking Heads’ “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody).” While in Brooklyn, the band covered “Hot Hot Hot” with Buster Poindexter and did two Ramones songs with drummer Marky Ramone. Check out the Suicide cover, which followed the Reflektor bobbleheads faking LCD Soundsystem’s “All My Friends,” and the setlist from the show below.

  1. They’re doing a hell of a job keeping this tour exciting through the end. I’m seeing them tomorrow night in Chicago and hoping they keep doing this special guest thing and curious who it would be for Chi. Hard to top Byrne.

  2. Swap out “Ocean of Noise” for “My Body Is a Cage” and you’ve got the setlist
