The band stage latest secret gig in Morecambe
Fresh from scooping two BRIT awards, Arctic Monkeys another secret gig at a Lancashire seaside resort last night (February 17).
Morecambe’s The Dome hosted to the four-piece, as hundreds of fans turned out as early as Friday (16) afternoon to bag tickets for the show.
Said tickets, which weren’t due to go on sale until noon on Saturday, were sold out by 10.30am, while many disappointed gig-goers were turned away.
Later, a 950-capacity crowd filled The Dome, all eager to hear a taster of tracks from the band’s new album ‘Favourite Worst Nightmare’.
After a lengthy support set from Liverpool’s Little Flames (friends of the Arctic Monkeys) the headliners took to the stage.
Debut album tracks ‘Still Take You Home’, ‘Dancing Shoes’, ‘Riot Van’ and ‘When the Sun Goes Down’ were amongst the 15-song set, while six new album tracks were well received and gave the fervent fans a chance to increase the noise level.
Arctic Monkeys played:
‘This House Is A Circus’
‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor’
‘Still Take You Home’
‘D Is For Dangerous’
‘When The Sun Goes Down’
‘From The Ritz To The Rubble’
‘Do Me A Favour’
‘View From The Afternoon’
‘Leave Before The Lights Come On’
‘What If You Were Right?’
‘A Certain Romance’
