Arcade Fire Covers Kansas' 'Dust in the Wind' in Kansas City

Seems like an appropriate place...
If you're going to cover the classic rock band Kansas then Kansas City is probably the best place to do it. (Well, other than the actual state, but I digress.) That's exactly where Arcade Fire decided to perform one of the band's best-known hits, "Dust in the Wind," during the latest stop on their Reflektor tour. The performance took place on Saturday night and you can hear it below.
The band has been performing several location-specific songs on their tour; they did "Mowtownphilly" (originally by Boyz II Men) in Philadelphia and Prince's "Controversy" in Minneapolis. Stevie Wonder's "Uptight (Everything's Alright)" was performed in Auburn Hills, Michigan near Detroit as well.
Of course, with Kansas City being in Missouri, they cut off the performance midway through so Win Butler can point that fact out. Check it out:
