Sheffield super band Arctic Monkeys have sold out the biggest capacity show ever at the city’s Motorpoint Arena - with their homecoming gig selling in a ‘instant’, writes Graham Walker.

Multi-million pound work to increase seating and improve services allowed the venue to sell 13,600 tickets – including floor standing access.
