Arctic Monkeys at Hillsborough Park was the homecoming concert fans had been waiting for – and it didn’t disappoint.

The stratospheric rise of the Arctic Monkeys has seen the High Green band win countless awards and produce several critically-acclaimed, and beloved, albums.

Whenever the band return to their home city of Sheffield to perform, it is always big news.
