Beck drops out as opening act for Arcade Fireplace’s North American leg of tour

Reside Nation has confirmed American musician Beck will now not be opening for the North American leg of Arcade Fireplace’s We tour, which begins on the finish of October.

A media spokesperson for the leisure firm didn’t present a cause for Beck’s cancellation, and mentioned the opener will as a substitute be Haitian band Boukman Eksperyans.

Canadian musician Leslie Feist introduced in early September that she was leaving Arcade Fireplace’s tour after sexual misconduct allegations have been made in opposition to lead singer Win Butler.

Feist had been booked as opening act for the European leg of the Montreal band’s newest tour, which kicked off in Dublin on the finish of August.

The live shows went forward simply days after U.S. music publication Pitchfork ran an article in late August containing allegations Butler had inappropriate sexual interactions with 4 individuals.
