Arctic Monkeys Summer Gig Spectacular
On Saturday 28th July 2007, Arctic Monkeys will be performing at Lancashire County Cricket Ground, Manchester.
The show will follow the late Spring release of their second album - the follow up to their record-breaking “Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not”, which did predictably well in all the end-of-year rock critics' polls.
They band have also been nominated for a Grammy in two categories: Best Alternative Music album and Best Rock Instrumental Performance for the track “Chun Li’s Spinning Bird Kick”.
The cricket ground gig will see the Monkeys supported by their favourite bands - names to be announced shortly. They will play their longest set to date, incorporating tracks from their debut and their hugely anticipated new album.
The tickets for the 50,000 capacity event will go on general sale on Friday 15th December 2006 at 12.30pm.
Arctic Monkeys’ registered fans will have 24 hour exclusive access to the online pre-sale which begins on Thursday 14th December 2006 at 12.30pm. For information about the pre sale go to www.arcticmonkeys.com
