Too Cool for School

The coolest cats in town are back, back, BACK! The Arctic Monkeys have bags of attitude and their kerosene-fuelled tunes are pumped full of adrenaline. Formed over ten years ago in the suburbs of Sheffield; this awesome foursome have since tasted sweet success with gems such as ‘When the Sun Goes Down’, ‘Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair’ and the latest hit single ‘Do I Wanna Know?’. The band made history when their first release; ‘Whatever People Say I Am That’s What I’m Not’; became the fastest selling debut album of all time. Indie kids have taken these cheeky chappies to their hearts and they have single-handedly started another wave of new, exciting rock music which makes a refreshing change to the identikit pop groups governed by the ultimate Svengali; Simon Cowell. The last time they were on tour was in 2011 to promote ‘Suck It And See’; and after two whole years absence have returned with a vengeance to light up the Phones 4u Arena once more on Wednesday 23rd October.

The eagerly-anticipated ‘AM’ tour is undoubtedly going to be one of the highlights of the year and will be a talking point amongst music enthusiasts across the board when they compose their annual reviews. Their innovative and diverse lyrics always have a touch of whimsy about them as they love to keep things a little light-hearted and tongue-in-cheek. They are the new Kings of the British indie scene as Blur and Oasis have long fallen at the wayside. Gone are the days of old where they battled for the top spot in the charts and the Gallaghers caused controversy with their very public spats. Liam Gallagher has lost his credibility somewhat by performing on the universally-panned ‘The Voice’ with his new outfit Beady Eye; and a lot of former die hard devotees are under the distinct impression that the Mouth of Manchester has ‘sold out’. There are countless MOR bands around such as The Script, Keane and Coldplay; so the last thing the charts need is another bland and boring ensemble.

After their headlining slot at Glastonbury making waves amongst media bigwigs; the Northern rascals are on their way back to home turf. It would be criminal not to make a weekend of it should you choose to book tickets for this exciting event; so why not treat yourself and stay at The Mitre Hotel?
