Grammy-Award winning Canadian rock band Arcade Fire, touring for their latest album “Reflektor,” reignited Pittsburgh fans on Wednesday at Consol Energy Center.

Concert-goers accepted the band's social media invitation to show up in decorative costumes, ranging from formal evening wear to Mardis Gras-style masquerade masks, even a disco-style mirror emblazoned suit.

The opening performance of “It's Never Over” began with Régine Chassagne spotlighted at the far end of the floor on a separate stage before joining the band on the main stage. During “Flashbulb Eyes,” frontman Win Bulter borrowed a fan's cellphone camera, holding it to his face like a mask while singing the chorus, “Hit me with your flashbulb eyes!” After two songs from their new album, the group went into “Neighborhod #3” from their 2005 debut album “Funeral.”

Since playing the Rex Theater in 2004, Arcade Fire has risen to international acclaim and won numerous awards, including a Grammy Album of the Year for their last album, “The Suburbs.”
