Frontier Touring is thrilled to confirm that Sheffield's Arctic Monkeys will be playing in Wellington on May 3 as part of their biggest tour of NZ shores to date!
Arctic Monkeys first burst onto the music scene in 2006 with their Award-winning debut album Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not. The album became the fastest-selling debut album in British music history.
In the years since their debut, the band have received two Grammy Award nominations, five Brit Awards, headlined the iconic Glastonbury Festival twice and taken to the world stage in front of billions as part of the London Olympic Games opening ceremony. Originally one of the ‘best new bands to watch’, Arctic Monkeys have well and truly cemented themselves now as one of the most important British bands of their time.
‘Arctic Monkeys’ fifth record is absolutely and unarguably the most incredible album of their career. It might also be the greatest record of the last decade.’ – NME, 10/10
‘AM does not so much revive Britpop as it does revive rock music.’ – The Vine
‘The Monkeys keep on evolving.’ – Rolling Stone, 4*
The AM Tour has already hit the United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom and Europe this year, impressing sold-out crowds with a set list filled with both tracks from their latest release and musical highlights from along the way:
‘They’re untouchable right now; they’re in their own league.’
– Chronicle Live
‘The band is at the top of their game and it was an unforgettable experience.’ – Nouse
‘By adding west coast hip-hop to vintage hard rock, Arctic Monkeys are more impressive than ever.’ – The Guardian
Tickets to the Australian and New Zealand leg of the AM Tour go on sale from 10am AEDT on Wednesday 11 December. If the demand for their latest album is anything to go by, these tickets won’t last long. Be quick to see Arctic Monkeys; one of the greatest live bands to emerge in recent years.
