Arctic Monkeys Extend North American Tour

Arctic Monkeys announce dates in Texas, Arizona and Kansas.

When you’ve just released one of your best albums ten years into your career, you really must want to tour it to death. At least that seems to be the policy of Arctic Monkeys as they’ve just announced five more North American tour dates for September and October including three dates in Texas and one apiece in Arizona and Kansas.

Fresh off their triumphant gig at Finsbury Park, Alex Turner and co. also have a raft of European and American festival dates including Rock Werchter, Lollapolooza, and Reading and Leeds scheduled. Finally, they head to South America in November.

Arctic Monkeys released their fifth album, AM, in September of last year. It has been hailed as their most accomplished work since their debut, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not. Featuring a guest appearance by Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, the album was critically and commercially successful upon release and was nominated for the 2013 Mercury Music Prize and named album of the year by both NME and Q Magazine.
