Currently traveling around the U.S. supporting their new album Reflektor, Arcade Fire stopped in the city of Minneapolis this past weekend. In a fitting nod to Minnesota’s native musical hero, the group wound up delivering a cover of Prince’s 1981 classic “Controversy.” During the performance Win Butler wore a box over his head displaying Prince’s face—eventually switching to that of congresswoman Michele Bachmann.
