Arctic Monkeys storm Ibiza Rocks with intimate gig

Reverend and the Makers join in the Sheffield love in

Arctic Monkeys teamed up with allies Reverend and The Makers for an intimate show in Ibiza last night (September 1).

Sheffield‘s indie superstars played with close friend Jon McLure‘s band for the first time in over a year at the latest Ibiza Rocks with Sony Ericsson shows at the town’s Bar M.

Playing their most intimate European show in months, the Monkeys played an hour-long, hit-packed set on the Balearic island in front of an audience that included Kaiser Chiefs singer Ricky Wilson, plus DJs Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim) and Zane Lowe, who had both been DJing on the island’s flagship club Manumission the previous night.


The Ibiza Rocks show also gave Alex Turner a chance to reunite with his housemate McLure.

Gearing up for the release of their album ‘The State Of Things’, Reverend and the Makers they ran through a set featuring singles ‘Heavyweight Champion Of The World’ and ‘He Said He Loved Me’, alongside an ironically delivered ’18-30′.

From the DJ booth, Zane Lowe tipped the band to return as headliners when Ibiza Rocks returns next year.
