In Oct. 2013, Arcade Fire dropped its acclaimed fourth studio album "Reflektor," which was named one of the top albums of the year by numerous publications, including Rolling Stone and Pitchfork. In 2014, the GRAMMY Award-winning group will be backing its latest release with a world tour that will stop in Mansfield, Mass., on Aug. 19. The Xfinity Center will be one of the last North American venues to host the band during its lengthy 2014 tour.

Seating at the Xfinity Center will be divided between six separate areas for attendees at the Arcade Fire performance. The first area, located directly in front of the stage, is a standing room only, general admission pit. The first level of reserved seating is the Orchestra, where Sections 1-3 surround the GA pit. Immediately following is a series of private boxes. This is in turn followed by the Lower Level, which holds Sections 4-8.
