The Arctic Monkeys have expanded their Australian tour, following immediate sell-outs in Sydney and Melbourne.

Just a couple of weeks ago, the Arctic Monkeys announced a long-awaited tour of Australia – the band’s first since 2014. Clearly, fans were eager to catch the Sheffield rockers on local shores, with two of the band’s shows selling out almost immediately.

Now, the band have announced extra dates for Melbourne and Sydney to help cope with the stunning demand.

The band will touring the country off the back of their boozy, chamber-pop drenched sixth record, Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino.It’s arguably the band’s most sonically ambitious album to date, so we can only imagine how the sultry, slow-burner will translate live with Arctic Monkeys’ inimitable bravado.

The band will be bringing Los Angeles indie-pop trio Mini Mansions along for the ride, a band led by Queens Of The Stone Age bassist Michael Shuman.

Tickets to these new shows – and the original tour dates – are on sale now, so be quick to ensure you don’t miss out on one of the most exciting live shows to hit Aussie shores this summer.
