Only days before Arcade Fire’s visit was planned to start in Dublin, four individuals approached with claims of sexual unfortunate behavior against the band’s co-chief Win Butler. The presentation show is set for this evening August 30th at 3Arena in Dublin and seems as though it’s good to go to push forward.
The FADER has likewise affirmed with a “very much positioned source” that the shows will be going on as planned in spite of the new disclosures. As per Brooklyn Vegan, the visit’s openers Feist (for UK dates) and Beck (for US dates) have not freely remarked on Butler’s claims.
In any case, some ticketholders have been requesting discounts or that the band drop/delay the shows in the wake of perusing the claims made by four separate individuals. The news came on Sunday, August 28th, in a report from Pitchfork. The report contains stories that blame Butler for “improper” activities from four individuals who were between the ages of 18 and 23 at the hour of the supposed associations somewhere in the range of 2015 and 2020.
Both Butler and his significant other/bandmate Régine Chassagne have put out articulations tending to the claims. Steward conceded to having cooperations and associations with the four individuals, who decided to utilize pen names, demands that they were all consensual. “Above all, each and every one of these communications has been common and consistently between consenting grown-ups,” he said. “It is profoundly revisionist, and honestly simply unacceptable, for anybody to propose in any case.”
In her own proclamation, Chassagne remained behind Butler saying, “I know he has never, and could never, contact a lady without her assent and I am sure he won’t ever do.”
