If you live in Nottingham don’t expect to see Arcade Fire playing live their again anytime soon after last night’s show.

Win Butler told the crowd that he’d never play the city again after being hit by one of several projectiles thrown at the stage.

The Canadian collective were playing ‘Neighbourhood #3 (Power Out)’ when he was hit in the face by what could have been either a bottle or a shoe.

According to drownedinsound he then changed the lyrics of the song to: "Where'd you go? / No seriously/ Where'd you go you fucker?"

The a second item was then thrown on stage during a encore of ‘Rebellion (Lies)’ which angered Butler even more.

He responded by telling the audience: "We'll never play Nottingham again."
