Check out stunning photos and footage of Arctic Monkeys and Miles Kane at The O2, London

Here's what went down...

Arctic Monkeys kicked off a mini-residency in London last night, with Miles Kane joining them on stage once again. Check out photos, footage and the setlist below.

As they kicked off the first of four shows at The O2 Arena, they marked the occasion by introducing Kane early on for a traditional rendition of ‘505’.

Five tracks into the set, Turner told the crowd “Ladies and gentlemen, Mr Miles Kane”, before his Last Shadow Puppets bandmate took to the stage for guitar duties on the ‘Favourite Worst Nightmare’ track.

The show also them opening with ‘Four Out Of Five’ once more, before heading straight into the furious strains of ‘Brianstorm’.

Elsewhere, they played ‘Science Fiction’ once more after debuting the track live in Manchester on Friday night. There was also a return for ‘Dancing Shoes’, having played it last week for the first time since 2014.

Turner remained typically quiet on the banter front, other than to ask “are you having a nice time, London? I’m having a very nice time” – and add the quip “It was a tough Christmas after that, but we worked it out by New Year.”

Meanwhile, their album ‘AM’ turned five-years-old this weekend – read about how it ‘made the band immortal’ here.
