Arctic Monkeys Announce First Show in Over Three Years

The band will headline Firefly Festival this summer

January 11, 2018

The Arctic Monkeys are headed to The Woodlands to play Firefly Festival this June—a big deal considering this is the first show they’ve announced since their last string of dates in Fall 2014.

The last new stuff we heard from the band was 2013’s AM, which brought us hits like “R U Mine?” and “Do I Wanna Know?” And while we were already pretty sure there’d be a new AM album coming out this year, the Firefly announcement is closing the gap on any doubts.

Fingers. Crossed.

In any case, the band will headline Firefly alongside The Killers, Kendrick Lamar, and Eminem, with other notable bands on the lineup, including Odesza, Portugal. The Man, Foster The People, Alt-J, Lord Huron, Rag N’ Bone Man, Royal Blood, Cold War Kids, Jimmy Eat WorldAlice Merton, Welshly Arms, Courtship., The Glorious Sons, and tons more.

No further Arctic Monkeys tour dates have been announced, but consider us one step closer to new AM tunes!

Firefly Festival takes place on June 14-17 in Dover, Delaware.
