Last week, they announced their sixth studio album. Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino is arriving on May 11th.
Only yesterday they announced their tour to support their upcoming album, but fans are not happy with the price of the tickets.
We're pleased to announce our live dates in September 2018. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday 13th April. Support comes from @thelemontwigs - for more information head to https://t.co/j1hCeXFZBM pic.twitter.com/KjNK5mn1Fq— Arctic Monkeys (@ArcticMonkeys) April 9, 2018
apparently the quality of an arctic monkeys show has improved so much it’d cost twice that of the last tour. daylight robbery pic.twitter.com/sFaEpPpOaD— sammy b (@psycho_jam) April 9, 2018
if arctic monkeys are actually charging £70 a ticket they're proper just trying to rip everyone off, average price for arena gigs is £40/£50, not arsed how good they are £70 is a lot of money to some people— E H (@elliehaayes) April 9, 2018
people who are surprised that arctic monkeys, a multi million selling pop band, are playing arenas instead of their local mouldy 200 cap venue are fucking delusional. this isn't some glorious DIY indie rock homecoming, it's just a popular band making as much £ as possible lol— DJ Acid Reflux (@sidneyphlegm) April 9, 2018
Can’t imagine watching the Arctic Monkeys in the 3 Arena 😬😬 need a big dirty field and a haaaaape of cans— Eric Nugent 🍀 (@eric_nugent) April 9, 2018
me: can no longer justify the cost of a Sainsbury's meal deal— pips (@pippaa_) April 9, 2018
also me: if i fail to see the arctic monkeys on their return to Sheffield i might die of regret
as much as I slag off alex turner now a days arctic monkeys were my fave band ever and I can’t miss them but £70 is a pure joke— katie (@glttrfreeze) April 9, 2018
