Arctic Monkeys play triumphant second night at Finsbury Park
The band are joined by Miles Kane for Last Shadow Puppets track 'Standing Next To Me'
Following performances from support acts Royal Blood, Miles Kane and Tame Impala, the Sheffield band kicked off their own performance at 9pm with three songs from their most recent album 'AM': 'Do I Wanna Know?', 'Snap Out Of It' and 'Arabella'. The latter track was interpolated with riffs from Black Sabbath's 1970 classic 'War Pigs'.
As with their show on the previous night, the first older track the band played was 'Brianstorm', the opening song from their second album, 2007's 'Favourite Worst Nightmare'. During the evening the band revisited tracks from each of their five records but heavily favoured songs from 'AM', which made up almost half the setlist.
They changed the order of a few tracks from their opening night, but the only major difference was the replacement of frontman Alex Turner's acoustic version of 'A Certain Romance' with Last Shadow Puppets track 'Standing Next To Me'. The band were joined onstage for the performance by Turner's Last Shadow Puppets collaborator Miles Kane.
The band then closed the show with another trio of 'AM' tracks: 'One For The Road', 'I Wanna Be Yours' and 'R U Mine?' Despite storms in London earlier in the day, the weather stayed dry for the band’s hour-and-a-half-long set.
