Everything you need to know about how to get Arctic Monkeys tour tickets

Easy peasy

Arctic Monkeys have announced a UK & Ireland tour in September 2018, and if you want to be in with a chance of seeing, them you’ll need to be prepared when they go on sale on Friday (April 13). Here’s what you need to know.

1. Tickets go on sale at 9am, so you’ll want to get ready beforehand, possibly loading the webpage across multiple devices.

2. Tickets are being sold by Ticketmaster, Seetickets and AXS among others.


3. Prices start at £39.50, plus booking fees.

4. There’s a strict ticketing limit of four tickets per person.

5. Whoever books the tickets will have their surname printed on all the tickets. This name cannot be changed after you have booked. When more than one ticket has been bought, each guest must arrive at the same time as the ‘Lead Booker’ at the venue on the night of the show. Guests will be turned away if they are not accompanied by the Lead Booker. The Lead Booker will also need to bring a valid photo ID matching their surname on the tickets, otherwise they will not be admitted.

6. If you need to sell a ticket, you must do so through Twickets, the artist’s official face-value resale partner.
