Beck will no longer open for Arcade Fire on their upcoming North American tour in support of WE. Instead, the Hatian band Boukman Eksperyans will be opening for Arcade Fire. The first show on the tour is set for Friday, October 28, in Washington, D.C. Representatives for Arcade Fire and Beck offered no comment when reached by Pitchfork.

Arcade Fire began their tour in Ireland in August, just a few days after allegations of sexual misconduct were made against frontman Win Butler. (Butler has maintained that all of the alleged interactions were consensual.) Feist had been scheduled to open for Arcade Fire in Europe, but she left the tour after playing two concerts, citing the allegations against Butler. Arcade Fire responded, “We are very sorry to see Leslie [Feist] go home, but completely understand and respect her decision.” Arcade Fire then enlisted Boukman Eksperyans to open the European shows.
