Arctic Monkeys: Snap Out Of It rock band add second show in Mexico City after first date quickly sells out
Arctic Monkeys have announced tickets have gone on sale for a second show in Mexico City on October 7, 2023 as the first date sold out so quickly.
The Sheffield-based rock band took to their Instagram account to let their 6 million followers know that the new date had been added and tickets were now available.
Fans took to social media to announce their excitement over the latest announcement.
One said: “I’M GOING TO SEE THEM FOR THE FIRST TIME
Another added hopefully: “Peru is really close to Mexico u know?”
The Sheffield-based rock band currently have two albums in the top 40 biggest selling albums of the year so far, ‘AM’ and ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not’.
On their tour, the group are being supported by @fontainesband and @the.backseat.lovers who are both successful in their own right. Fontaines D.C. is an Irish post-punk band formed in Dublin in 2017 and have already picked up many awards.
The Backseat Lovers, who impressed audiences with their heart-wrenching song "Kilby Girl" have also achieved great success on Spotify. The band’s 2019 single, "Kilby Girl", has accumulated over 300 million streams on Spotify.
All five members of the Arctic Monkeys come from High Green and met and formed the band while they were all still at Stocksbridge High School.
Arctic Monkeys frontman, Alex Turner, who famously dated the stunning fashion icon, Alexa Chung, claims to only have taken his first gig at The Grapes in Sheffield city centre “just to get to the end of the night and pull the bird that I fancied” but the event turned out to launch a stratospheric music career for the young lads from Sheffield.
Whilst the band are currently on a European tour performing in Germany, Austria, Sweden, Norway, France and the Netherlands, they will be treating their UK and Ireland fans this summer. Alongside a number of other festivals, they will be joining Guns N’ Roses, Elton John, Lizzo and many more legendary performers at Glastonbury 2023.
