The band took to Twitter to deny the event is taking place
Arctic Monkeys have taken to Twitter to alert fans to the “fraudulent promotion” of a gig that is not actually scheduled to take place.
Posters for a show supposedly taking place on February 28 in Malaysia have been made available, however the band have confirmed that the show is not actually happening.
Posting on their Twitter page, the band wrote, “Following our show in Rio, there are no further live shows planned. Please disregard fraudulent promotions.” A poster for the fake gig was also posted alongside the announcement.

The aforementioned Rio show took place on November 15, while Arctic Monkeys’ final UK show was at Leeds Festival in August.
The band have not stated when they plan to return to the live stage yet, however frontman Alex Turner recently performed with US group Mini Mansions on their track ‘Vertigo’. The band’s singer Michael Shuman also plays bass in Queens of the Stone Age.
