Arctic Monkeys played their first gig since headlining Glastonbury at Open'er Festival last night (July 3).

Playing an identical set as their Pyramid Stage performance last Friday (June 28), minus the string section for 'Cornerstone' and Mardy Bum', the band opened with new track 'Do I Wanna Know?' - the first single taken from their forthcoming fifth album 'AM'.

"Good evening everyone, we are the Arctic Monkeys from Sheffield, England," said frontman Alex Turner, during the middle of second song 'Brianstorm', as the dark clouds overheard began to clear. "Gydina! How ya feeling everybody?" he added before launching into 'Dancing Shoes'.

After the band's Glastonbury set, Turner was on the end of criticism for having lost his natural Sheffield accent for a more Stateside twang, but he continued with his unusual stage persona in Poland saying, "thankyerverymuch" in an Elvis-like twang before the band played 'Don't Sit Down Cause I Moved Your Chair'.

That song was followed by 'Teddy Picker', which segued into 'Crying Lightning', before the band played 'Brick By Brick' and debut album highlight 'Fake Tales Of San Francisco'. "I'm gonna play some 'Humbug' music," said Turner before 'Pretty Visitors'. "Some of that full moon music for ya!" he added as he snarled the opening lyrics of the song.

This was followed by 'I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor', 'Do Me A Favour', 'R U Mine?', new track 'Mad Sounds' and 'Fluorescent Adolescent', before they finished their main set with 'A Certain Romance'.

"Can you stand a couple more?" asked Turner on the band's return to the stage for the encore. They then proceeded to play 'Cornerstone' – this time without the backing of a string band – before finishing with 'Mardy Bum', 'When The Sun Goes Down' and '505'.

'Brianstorm'

Before Arctic Monkeys took to the stage, the festival's Main Stage saw a performance by Tame Impala. The Australian psych-rock outfit played during a rainstorm but songs such 'Elephant' and 'Half Full Glass Of Wine' failed to dampen the spirits of those who braved the downpour.

Day two of Open'er Festival was brought to a close by Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds. Playing a longer set than their Glastonbury appearance last weekend, the band played a set of new and classic tracks, including 'Jubilee Street', 'Deanna' and 'Stagger Lee'.

Open'er Festival will continue today (July 5) with performances from Queens Of The Stone Age, The National, Disclosure and Palma Violets.
