The Arcade Fire have been sporting a unique kind of bobblehead mask this tour and now, one of them has been stolen, The band, made up of six members, had six of these one-of-a-kind masks for their current “Reflektor” tour. during their recent stop in Bridgeport, Connecticut, the giant papier-mâché model of Richard Parry’s head.

The band have released a statement asking fans to help locate the head even though they say that have evidence pointing to the culprit. Rather than just accusing the culprit of the crime and getting the authorities involved, they would rather have the head returned.

“Richy’s bobblehead mask was taken from our show in Bridgeport, CT,” the statement said. “This mask is a one of a kind piece that is an essential component to our live show. We have photos of the theft but rather than press charges we would prefer if the person who took it would get in touch with us to return it. Perhaps this is all an innocent mistake and you meant to leave the venue with your own oversized paper mache rendition of Richard Parry’s head? Please contact: info@quest-management.com with any information.”

The masks first made their appearance during the band’s Here Comes the Night Time TV special. When asked about the mask in an interview with Rolling Stone, frontman Will Butler said,  “For me, wearing a mask and dancing and being in the crowd – there’s this whole inversion of society that happens.”

The unfortunate incident happened on the last date of the tour before the band were to slated to take a small break from it for some festival dates.

The Reflektors or shall we say the Arcade Fire have already done a pretty bang up job of promoting their new album, Reflektor and that was even before the album had been released. Performing in secret clubs and venues with a strict dress code and limited access, it was only a matter of time before the band released the news that they would be going from tiny rooms with people to the hilt to huge arenas.

Just a few weeks after their new album reached the number one spot on the charts, the band have revealed that they will head out on an official tour starting in Kentucky. The tour will begin on March 6 at Louisville’s Yum! Center and run all the way until August 30 where they will conclude that tour run at the Parc Jean Drapeau in their hometown of Montreal.

While some dates have already been released, which can be seen below, the band’s publicist does advise that more dates will be revealed within the upcoming weeks, so just in case you don’t see your hometown on the list yet, like us here, don’t worry because it might be added soon.
