Monkey business Arctic Monkeys are set to play Firefly Festival
They might also be teasing even more future dates…
Last September, Arctic Monkeys bassist Nick O’Malley spilled the beans on just what the band were up to, saying that they’d begun working on their sixth LP and that it’d be out in 2018 because “if it isn’t, then we’ve got problems”.
Now that return looks even more imminent as the band have revealed their first show of 2018. They’ll be playing at Firefly Festival in Delaware alongside Kendrick Lamar, The Killers, Eminem and more between 14th-17th June.
But that’s not all! As reported by NME, the band also posted a cryptic Instagram video, which fans are speculating shows the dates and co-ordinates of gigs they’re set to play this year. This might mean they’d probably be playing Rock Werchter, Mad Cool and Primavera, with something planned in London tomorrow. Yep, tomorrow! Ooh er!
