As a treat to the crowd at their Manchester show yesterday (July 6), Arcade Fire played Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart.” They also inserted a snippet of New Order’s “Temptation” at the end of “Afterlife.”

The concert took place approximately one month after the terror attack at Ariana Grande’s show. Frontman Win Butler thanked the crowd for  “not being scared” to come to their show and called them “a f—— inspiration to the rest of the world.”
