Arctic Monkeys for November 2009 UK/ Ireland tour

Posted: 10th September 2009

Those cheeky Sheffield lads are at it again, touring Britain this November, with special guests, Eagles of Death Metal.

The Arctic Monkeys are a multi-Brit Award-winning alternative rock band, having epic success from the word go. The band's second single, 'I bet that you look good on the dance floor' hit number one in the charts, along with their first album becoming the fastest selling debut album in British music history.

The band will be performing material from their last two albums along with their most recent. Previously influenced by classic British rock bands such as Oasis, The Clash and The Beatles, Humbug, their third album is said to be inspired by Jimi Hendrix and Cream, creating sounds similar to that of Queens of the Stone Age.

This is the Arctic Monkeys' first UK tour since December 2007, so put on your dancing shoes! Tickets go on sale at 9AM, and cost £29.50 per person for the UK dates or €42.20 for the Dublin date.
