Well… possibly.

With a slew of European festival dates announced and still no shows on English soil, it doesn’t take much for the internet to start speculating over Arctic Monkeys’ possible next moves.

Like, have you ever noticed that Tottenham ends in -am? As in ’AM’ or Arctic Monkeys??? Maybe it’s a clue.

But in terms of more plausible rumours, today’s new lead seems to be of the altogether more likely variety.

Signs have been spotted around Sheffield which indicate that SJM Concerts - the company that promotes the band’s live shows - have requested permission for a four-day event at the city’s Hillsborough Park during September.

And while it could be for an entirely different event headlined by a totally different, massive local band (the return of Milburn, perhaps), it looks rather likely that they may have just let slip the comeback gigs of the year.
