Arctic Monkeys are set to appear at the Ages Bowl as part of their biggest UK and Irish tour to date.
The English rock band, widely regarded as one of the first groups to come to public attention via the internet, will perform at the home of Hampshire Cricket on June 14 next year.
Arctic Monkeys are set to hit the road in late May in support of their seventh studio album, The Car, which arrives next month.
Kicking off at Bristol’s Ashton Gate Stadium on May 29, the tour will include concerts in Manchester, Middlesbrough, Norwich and Swansea, as well as gigs in Glasgow and Dublin.
The Hives and The Mysterines will appear as “special guests” openers at the show.
The current dates mean that Arctic Monkeys will be free to appear at Glastonbury Festival on Friday, June 23 or Saturday, June 24. The hugely successful band are also planning a return to Worthy Down, Winchester.
Arctic Monkeys was formed in Sheffield by three friends, Alex Turner, Matt Helders and Andy Nicholson.
Their 2006 release, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, became the fastest-selling debut album in UK chart history and won Best British Album at the 2007 Brit Awards.
The band’s second album, Favorite Worst Nightmare, was also praised by critics and won Best British Album at the 2008 Brit Awards. He released Humbug (2009) and Sak It & See (2011).
The band’s widespread international fame came with the success of their critically acclaimed fifth album, AM, in 2013.
Arctic Monkeys became the first independent-label band to debut at number one in the UK with their first five albums.
Tickets for the 2023 tour go on sale at 9am on Friday, September 30, with a fan pre-sale starting at 9am the day before.
