After their sensational performance at Glastonbury this summer gone, a hit-new album released just after and a sell-out set of shows in the UK, the ever growing Arctic Monkeys have no sense of delirium when believing the ‘hype’. Then, a breeze of excitement polluted the air of the music world when the Sheffield rockers announced, released and sold the majority of the tickets to their two-day stint for the end of May at the iconic Finsbury Park, a rock and roll hot spot for decades staging a range of acts from Hendrix to the immensely anticipated Stone Roses reunion dates this summer gone.
With a brigade of acts featuring the likes of modern psychedelic pioneers Tame Impala, the enigmatic two piece from Brighton that is Royal Blood, and the often anticipated collaboration with fellow northern rocker Miles Kane, this event is bound to rival their home-coming back to back shows at Don Valley in 2010.
Those lucky enough to receive a ticket will be more than ecstatic awaiting the shows whilst those unlucky members of the public craving a ticket will be left hectically scrambling through ticket prices that are now soaring.
