Tonight (August 31), Arcade Fire will perform in Dublin's 3Arena, the band's first concert since frontman Win Butler was accused of sexual misconduct (Butler has denied these claims). Opening for the band's first run of dates is Feist, and according to Pitchfork, a sign at her merch tent says that she will donate "all proceeds" from tonight's merch sales to domestic violence charity Women's Aid Dublin.

Yesterday, a source confirmed to The FADER that Arcade Fire's tour will proceed as planned. Representatives for Feist and Beck, the tour's other opener, did not respond to requests for comment.

Butler was accused of misconduct by three women and one gender-fluid person from alleged incidents taking place between 2015 and 2020. He has called the allegations "revisionist, and frankly wrong," claiming that each sexual encounter was consensual.

The FADER has reached out to representatives for Feist and Arcade Fire for more information. Arcade Fire released their sixth studio album WE in May.
