Arctic Monkeys move to bigger venue

London date is now at the Astoria

Arctic Monkeys have upgraded the venue of their London show on their UK tour due to demand.

The band were due to play at the London Mean Fiddler on October 6, but the show will now take place at the bigger Astoria next door.

A statement reads: “It seems that there are an awful lot of very disappointed fans who were unable to get tickets for the London show on the forthcoming tour. So we have decided to move the show to the Astoria. The venue is about a one minute walk down the Charing Cross road from the Mean Fiddler. Tickets for the Arctic Monkeys Mean Fiddler show will be valid for the Astoria. Additional tickets for the Astoria show will be made available exclusively through the Arctic Monkeys web site.”

Norwich Waterfront (October 2)
