The news about Arctic Monkeys’ upcoming performance at NOS Alive came after the band added new European concerts to their 2023 world tour. Alex Turner and Co. they are going to hit the road next spring in support of their famous seventh album “The Car”.
A series of stadium shows in the UK and Ireland is scheduled for May and June, followed by a stage in North America in September. The Monkeys will be in Europe in late April and early May, and will return for additional concerts in July.
AM also lined up to top the bill at next year’s Open’er Festival and Bilbao BBK Live in Spain. Rumor has it that they are currently one of the two remaining Glastonbury 2023 headliners following Elton John’s confirmation last week.
Meanwhile, Arctic Monkeys’ singles “Body Paint” and “There’d Better Be A Mirrorball” appeared this week on NME’s “Best Songs of 2022” list at 24th and 5th places, respectively.
NME praised frontman Turner’s “truly serious, open, romantic and human” lyrics in the last track, calling it “the beauty of a slow dance waltz.”
