One fan noted: "The band have been touring America but they have a gap now and are not due to play live again until May 22 in Berlin, so who knows?"

Sheffield is one of only six cities across the world to host a pop-up store, the others being New York, Sydney, Paris, Berlin and Tokyo.

A number of other fans took to Twitter to express their excitement at finally getting their hands on the new album - their first since 2013's AM.

Naomi Frisby tweeted: "Love that the Arctic Monkeys pop-up shops are going to be in capital cities around the world on Friday. Which, in the UK, means Sheffield."

The band will play four homecoming shows at the Fly DSA Arena on September 18, 19, 21 and 22 later this year as part of a wider UK tour.
