Arctic Monkeys announce Irish shows
ARCTIC Monkeys have announced new Irish dates in the wake of their cancelled appearance at Dublin's Marlay Park - including a Belfast show.
The Alex Turner-led band canceled their June 19 Dublin show the day before it was to happen, when the singer/guitarist was diagnosed with acute laryngitis. Later that week, the Sheffield indie rockers headlined the Pyramid Stage at the Glastonbury Festival.
Now, the group have announced a trio of dates at Dublin's 3Arena along with a single show at the SSE Arena in Belfast, all featuring support from Miles Kane.
They will play 3Arena on October 15, followed by a gig at the SSE Arena on October 16 and two more shows at the 3Arena on October 17 and 19.
Previous ticket holders for the cancelled Marlay Park date will be sent a unique access code and will be given 72-hour priority pre-sale access via ticketmaster.ie, starting at 9am on Friday August 25. Only the same number of tickets, or less, purchased previously for Marlay Park will be available to purchase for these new dates.
General sales for the Irish shows will commence on August 29 at 9am.
Arctic Monkeys are due to start a 30 date tour of North America later this week in support of their seventh album, The Car, which will conclude with two nights at Foro Sol Stadium in Mexico City on October 6 and 7.
