Watch Arctic Monkeys play 'Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino' songs live for the first time

The band opened their world tour in LA last night (2nd May).

Arctic Monkeys began their world tour for new album ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’ in Los Angeles last night (2nd May), and debuted tracks from the new album live for the first time.

Four new songs from the album - out next Friday - got their debut, including ‘One Point Perspective’ and ‘American Sport’, while Tame Impala’s Cameron Avery guested with the band on ‘Tranquility…’ tracks ‘Four Out of Five’ and ‘She Looks Like Fun’.

The band’s tour continues for the rest of the year, with festival dates in Europe up next.

They’ve revealed that no new material from the album will be revealed from the record before its release date, and that it almost became an Alex Turner solo record.
