    If you took a huge papier–mâché bobblehead mask from the Arcade Fire show in Connecticut last week, the band wants it back, no questions asked.  

    Arcade Fire was at Bridgeport's Webster Bank Arena on Tuesday as part of the Reflektor tour and Richard Parry's bobblehead was stolen during their show, according to a statement from the band’s public relations firm.

    “This mask is a one of a kind piece that is an essential component to our live show," Arcade Fire said in a statement. "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."

    Someone started an Arcade Fire Bobblehead Twitter parody account about the prop being on the run.

    Backstage at the 2011 Grammy Awards, the band members of Arcade Fire are still in shock over winning Album of the Year over some of music's "heavy hitters." Plus, to which under-appreciated artist would they gladly give up their Grammy? (Published Tuesday, March 4, 2014)

    The band also has a good sense of humor about the incident.

    ”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?” the statement continues.

    Their next show is on March 28 in Mexico City.

    If you took the mask or know who did, help get the head back to the band by contacting info@quest-management.com with any information.
