Arcade Fire cover Prince's Controversy

The first leg of Arcade Fire's Reflektor tour has seen the band cover The Rolling Stones' The Last Time; The Black Eyed Peas' I Gotta Feeling; Lady Gaga's Do What U Want and Aerosmith's I Don't Want To Miss A Thing. All of which sounds like the worst mixtape of all time, but you've got to give them credit for attempting Prince's Controversy when they stopped off in his home town of Minneapolis last night.

They even have a go at the "I wish we all were nude" spoken-word section. And they pull it off. Top marks.

As you can see from the picture above, the band played the song while wearing LCD screens on their heads displaying the faces of the Purple Perv and (for some reason) local Tea Party politician Michelle Bachman.

While we're on the subject of Prince, he seems to have disappeared back to America, appearing on the Arsenio Show, then playing an impromptu show at the Palladium in LA for $100 a pop. Let's hope he comes back for the much-rumoured Hyde Park headline shows. If not, at least he's left a few souvenirs on YouTube.
