Sheffield super band Arctic Monkeys had fans queuing 10-deep for up to 20 hours when they put tickets on sale for their last homecoming arena gig five years ago - but there will be none of that tomorrow.
Sheffield FlyDSA Arena bosses today reminded fans not to turn up when tickets go on sale - on Friday, April 13 at 9am - because in person bookings are NOT available at any venue for their 2018 UK tour.
Tickets, priced £43.45 to £76.45, including booking fee, can only be bought online - for Sheffield visit www.flydsaarena.co.uk or call the ticket hotline on 0114 256 5656.
The Arena has issued a statement predicting there will be more demand for tickets than they have available to sell for their two Sheffield shows, which take place Tuesday and Wednesday, September 18 and 19.
In bid to a avoid a disappointing Friday the 13th fans are being urged to also take note of all the booking advice including the anti-touting measures that Arctic Monkeys have put in place.
Ticket sales are limited to a maximum of four per person and to gain admission to the concert, the lead booker must bring the tickets, a valid photo ID matching the surname on the tickets
Failure to provide identification will result in refusal of admission to the concert.
The standing area is for those aged 16 and over. Under 14’s are permitted in the seating area but must be accompanied by an adult aged 18 and over.
