Arctic Monkeys


It’s now 20 years since Alex Turner formed the Arctic Monkeys in Sheffield. Their consistency in all that time has been astonishing, the last studio album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino veering off into new musical territory and still selling squillions. The current tour – Pula Arena tomorrow, then Reading, Leeds and beyond – represents their first live dates in three years, so expect plenty of energy and a few old favourites. Main Stage, 9.15pm
