Arctic Monkeys Tickets
Arctic Monkeys are a four-piece English indie rock band. Their first two singles, "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor" and "When the Sun Goes Down" both went straight to number one on the UK Singles Chart. Their debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, also holds the record for the largest first week sales of a debut album in the U.K. They are regarded as one of the most prominent post-punk revival bands in the UK.
The band released their fifth studio album, AM, in 2013 and will be embarking on more North American tour dates in Fall 2013.

Arctic Monkeys won Best New Act at the 2006 Brit Awards, and went down in history at the 2006 NME Awards in becoming the first band to win Best New Band and Best British Band in the same year. In its first week of release in America, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, sold 34,000 units, making it the second fastest selling for a debut indie album in America. While not as strong as the British reception, the album debuted #24 on the Billboard album chart.
The band's northern roots, often seen as a key element of the band's style, have seen them billed as a "northern Libertines", while their unique sound and wry lyrics have been compared to the The Jam, Blur, Pulp, and The Streets.
