Arctic Monkeys took to stage at the iconic Royal Albert Hall last night armed with a set list designed to deliver on London’s pioneering music venue.
Following the release of their new album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, Arctic Monkeys announced a very special show at the Royal Albert Hall in aid of War Child UK.
Given the excitement, the band took the opportunity to play the new album opener ‘Star Treatment’ live for the very first time. The band decided to debut the track during a three song encore which also featured fan favourites ‘The View From The Afternoon’ and ‘R U Mine’.
Elsewhere Lily Allen has been discussing how she and Alex Turner once considered forming a band together.
Reminiscing about times their paths have crossed in the music industry, Allen revealed that she and Turner discussed working together: “We were meant to do a band together once, called Rupert The Band, me and Alex Turner,” she told NME. “I haven’t seen him for a long time. He lives in LA now. Avoiding tax. Yeah,” she joked.
Asked about Arctic Monkeys new album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, a record that initially split opinion but now seems to be well received, Allen said: “I like that new record,” before adding: “It’s like cliché rock’n’roll, but I like it. You know what I mean? I knew it wasn’t going to be Sheffield rock again, but it’s like everything that I expected from a bunch of lads living in Hollywood, from Sheffield, to come up with and I like it for that.”
