Arctic Monkeys have announced details of their biggest-ever UK and Irish tour – and your best chance at getting tickets ends today.

The Sheffield rockers are set to perform in Manchester next summer, with a massive gig at Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground.

Alex Turner, Jamie Cook, Matt Helders and Nick O’Malley will also play shows in Bristol, Coventry, Middlesbrough, Norwich, Swansea, Southampton, London, Dublin, Glasgow, and two gigs in their hometown at Hillsborough Park.

The tour announcement follows news of a new album, The Car, which is due for release on 21 October.

Arctic Monkeys have already released one single from their seventh studio album – There’d Better Be a Mirrorball dropped last month, to rave reviews.

Their 2006 critically-acclaimed debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, became the fastest-selling debut album in UK chart history.


They’ll be supported on their May and June tour dates by fellow indie rockers The Hives and The Mysterines.

The Arctic Monkeys general sale will begin at 9am on Friday 30 September, but there’ll also be a fan pre-sale for an extra chance at grabbing tickets.

To gain access to the pre-sale, fans need to pre-order The Car from the band’s official web store before 3pm today, Wednesday 28 September.
