Arctic Monkeys fans left disappointed by tour ticket prices
Some Arctic Monkeys have been left frustrated and disappointed by the revelation that tickets for the Sheffield band’s latest tour will cost as much as £80.
Yesterday Far Out reported the news that the band have revealed details of a UK and Ireland tour which will take place in September. Having announced their sixth album Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino, Arctic Monkeys have added to their previously announced festival dates with a series of huge arena shows in Manchester, London, Birmingham, Sheffield, Dublin, and Newcastle.
However, following the revelation that tickets will cost between £45-£80, the band’s devoted fanbase have been left divided. George, a fan of the band since the early days, said: “Wouldn’t pay £80 to see Arctic Monkeys and that’s coming from a fan who has been there since the first record,” he said on Twitter before adding “Go to a local show and have a better time supporting your mates.”
“Arctic Monkeys charging £80 for tickets?! Cost me £12 in 2005,” another fan pointed out. “I paid £33 the last time I saw Arctic Monkeys. £80 is utterly outrageous-you can go to a cheap festival for less than that,” another said.
