Arctic Monkeys will perform at Sidney Myer Music Bowl (Melbourne) on Wednesday 4 January; followed by Riverstage (Brisbane) on Wednesday 11 January; and finally, The Domain (Sydney) on Saturday 14 January.

The Sheffield band have released six studio albums to date. 2006’s ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not’ was the fastest-selling debut album in UK chart history upon its release, winning the Mercury Music Prize (the band nominated a further three times). It was followed by ‘Favourite Worst Nightmare’ (2007), ‘Humbug’ (2009), ‘Suck It And See’ (2011), ‘AM’ (2013), and ‘Tranquillity Base Hotel + Casino’ (2018).

They’ve won seven Brit Awards, 20 NME Awards, 5 Q Awards, and nominated for three Grammys.

One of the most successful bands to emerge in the last two decades, Arctic Monkeys’ ‘Tranquillity Base Hotel + Casino World Tour’ sold over 625,000 tickets.

From August 2022, the band will headline festivals across the globe including Lowlands, Pukkelpop, Rock En Seine, Reading and Leeds, Electric Picnic, Primavera Sound and more, before ringing in the new year at Australia’s Lost Paradise, Falls Festival and Heaps Good.
