Arctic Monkeys are back! And it seems we’re in for an eventful summer.
The Sheffield band have confirmed their huge festival dates and will headline Scotland’s TRNSMT festival, Finland’s Flow Festival, Norway’s Øya Festival, Budapest’s Sziget festival and Barcelona’s Primavera Sound later this year.
Earlier today, Alex Turner and co have posted a picture on their social media channels of a black background and a set of faded gold hexagons over the top of each other announcing the news.
The dates mark the group’s first live shows in more than three years.
