Canadian rockers Arcade Fire lit up the night above Hollywood on Tuesday night when they performed on the roof of Capitol Records building.

Win Butler and his band performed 12 songs on the roof of the landmark to mark the release of the band’s new album “Reflektor.”

As part of the sky-high set, the group performed a segment from Lou Reed’s “Satellite of Love” as a tribute to the late rock star, who died on Sunday.
