Arctic Monkeys perform new song ‘Batphone’ live for the first time

Arctic Monkeys perform new song ‘Batphone’ for the first time during a recent performance in Paris.

The show, which was taking place Zénith de Paris last night, saw Arctic Monkeys roll through news songs from their recent album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino as well revisiting their vast back catalogue.

Opening with arguably the lead single from their new record with ‘Four Out of Five’, the Sheffield band smashed into some crowd pleasers with ‘Brianstorm’ and ‘Crying Lightning’ before ending the set with an encore of ‘The View From the Afternoon’, ‘Arabella’ and ‘R U Mine?’.
