News that Arctic Monkeys will play the inaugural LA event follows recent confirmation of several 2022 festival appearances as well as a European tour.
The band’s drummer Matt Helders revealed recently that the group’s upcoming seventh album – the follow-up to 2018’s ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’ – was “pretty much” finished and is likely to arrive ahead of the summer shows.
