Arctic Monkeys performed at the prestigious London venue last night (June 7)
The band performed at the prestigious London venue last night (June 7) in aid of charity War Child. It was their first performance in the UK since ‘Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino”s release, and their first in their home country since their headline sets at Reading & Leeds 2014.
Fan-shot footage of ‘Arabella’ shows a bra flying through the air from the crowd and landing perfectly on Turner’s arm. Seconds later, he threw it off backwards, barely missing guitarist Jamie Cook as he did so. Watch footage of the moment below.
Meanwhile, Arctic Monkeys will be the subject of a BBC special that airs tonight (June 8). A petition started before the band’s sixth album appealed for them to be given a Live At The BBC episode, and it seems to have proved successful.
Arctic Monkeys Live At The BBC will be shown on BBC Two at 11:05pm BST. It will be available on BBC iPlayer for 30 days afterwards. At least some of the concert was already broadcast on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show last night, and featured tracks including ‘Four Out Of Five’, ‘Do I Wanna Know?’, ‘One Point Perspective’, and ‘Cornerstone’.
The band will return to the UK in July when they headline Glasgow’s TRNSMT Festival, and in September for a headline arena tour. Remaining tickets for the shows are available here.
