The news of Arctic Monkeys’ forthcoming NOS Alive appearance comes after the band added new European dates to their 2023 world tour. Alex Turner and co. are set to hit the road next spring in support of their acclaimed seventh album ‘The Car’.
A run of UK and Ireland stadium shows is scheduled for May and June, with a North American leg following in September. The Monkeys will be in Europe in late April and early May before returning for extra gigs in July.
AM are also lined up to top the bill at next year’s edition of Open’er Festival and Bilbao BBK Live in Spain. They’re currently rumoured to be one of the two remaining headliners for Glastonbury 2023 following the confirmation of Elton John last week.
NME praised frontman Turner’s “truly earnest, open, romantic and human” lyrics on the latter track, calling it a “slow-dance waltzing beauty”.
