Monkeys Announce UK Tour
And their most loyal fans are set to be rewarded...
Arctic Monkeys have announced details of a UK tour just ahead of the release of their highly anticipated second album.
The Sheffield scamps will kick things off in Southampton on April 9 and round things up with a two-night homecoming gig at The Leadmill in Sheffield on April 21, 22.
Tickets are being sold via the band's mailing list to reward loyal fans, so those who aren't subscribed already get on your, ahem, dancing shoes and get yourself registed. You have until 7pm tomorrow night (March 14) to do it.
The right to buy tix will be decided by a 'fair ballot' - those on the mailing list will be asked to register for one venue and successful applicants will be emailed a PIN number (which will only work once) this Friday (March 16) and have until Monday (March 19) to snap up the goods.
Meanwhile, here are those dates in full:
Southampton Guildhall (April 9)
Exeter University Great Hall (10)
London Astoria (12, 13)
Liverpool Academy (14)
Newcastle Academy (16)
Dundee Caird Hall (17)
Glasgow Barrowlands (18)
Birmingham Academy (20)
Sheffield The Leadmill (21, 22)
The band release new single 'Brianstorm' on April 16 and the album 'Worst Favourite Nightmare' hits the shops on April 23.
