The Arctic Monkeys, the renowned Sheffield rockers, have officially kick-started their 2023 UK tour with a headline show at Bristol’s Ashton Gate Stadium. The band, led by Alex Turner, is set to deliver a career-spanning setlist at various venues, playing fan favourites from all seven of their studio albums, including their latest effort, ‘The Car’.
The tour began in Bristol on May 29, and the band is expected to perform at different stadiums across the UK and Ireland. The tour is set to conclude in Glasgow on June 25, promising a series of unforgettable performances for fans.
The band’s setlist for the tour includes a mix of their classic hits and new songs from ‘The Car’. The band’s performance of ‘Mardy Bum’, a fan favourite, after a decade, has already created a buzz among fans and critics alike.
The Arctic Monkeys have also enlisted the support of The Hives and The Mysterines for their tour. Both bands have a significant fanbase and their performances are expected to set the stage for the main act. The Mysterines, a four-piece alternative rock band from Liverpool, and The Hives, the Swedish rockers, are set to deliver exciting performances, adding to the overall concert experience.
The tour is not just about the music, but also about the experience. Fans are advised to plan their transport in advance as the venues have limited parking facilities. The use of public transport is encouraged, with shuttle bus tickets available for pre-booking.
