Alex Turner plays solo version of 'A Certain Romance' in final Arctic Monkeys Sheffield gig


Alex Turner reverted back to his new electrum drum machine to put together a solo version of Arctic Monkeys fan favourite ‘A Certain Romance’.

The performance, coming in the final gig in a run of homecoming Sheffield concerts, also included a solo rendition of ‘Mardy Bum’.
