Arctic Monkeys Tickets
Arctic Monkeys TicketsThe indie rock scene in England was transformed when Arctic Monkeys hit the airwaves in 2005 with their first single, "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor." On the UK Singles Chart, the track instantly debuted at No. 1, and its follow-up, "When the Sun Goes Down," topped the chart as well. These successful releases generated significant interest in the band's first album, and Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not subsequently became the quickest-selling debut in British history. Arctic Monkeys bolstered their credentials with the garage punk Favourite Worst Nightmare (featuring "Fluorescent Adolescent") in 2007 and the Gothic industrial Humbug in 2009. In 2013, they achieved worldwide acclaim for AM, which included the hit singles "Do I Wanna Know?" and "Why'd You Only Call Me When You're High?" Their 2018 release, Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, ended a five-year hiatus and marked an exciting experimental turn for the group by incorporating jazz lounge and space-pop elements. Naturally, the groundbreaking record is being promoted with a huge world tour and several festival appearances.
The Influences of Alex TurnerArctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner draws from a deep well of musical influences, and he professes that his favorite band as a teenager was The Strokes. English bands like The Libertines and The Coral strongly inspired Turner's guitar playing, as did The White Stripes and Morrissey. Meanwhile, his lyricism was derived from a particular fondness of hip-hop; in fact, Turner has praised Method Man and Wu-Tang Clan for their creative impact on his songwriting. The work of John Cooper Clarke, also known as "The Punk Poet," helped Turner embrace his distinct Sheffield accent. In live appearances, Arctic Monkeys cover The Beatles, Tame Impala, Nick Cave, Lou Reed, Shirley Bassey, Girls Aloud and Drake.
