Arctic Monkeys have announced additional US tour dates in August.   The band recently completed a sold out headlining tour, which included the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York City.  The 2014 BRIT Award winners will perform in San Diego at the SDSU Open Air Theatre on August 6th and in Los Angeles at the Staples Center on August 7th.   Tickets go on sale to the

general public at 10am on Friday, April 4th.  More dates will be announced soon! For more information please visit ArcticMonkeys.com.

It has been a monumental year for Arctic Monkeys with their triumphant return to the headlining spot at Glastonbury and selling out venues across the US and Europe in support of their album AM. Their single “Do I Wanna Know?” has been #1 Alternative Track in the US for 9 weeks.  AM gave the band their 5th consecutive UK #1 album and, at #6, their highest ever Billboard Chart placing.  The band recently earned multiple wins at the UK’s GRAMMY-equivalent BRIT AWARDS, where they took home the two major titles of Best British Band and Album Of The Year, and at the fan-voted NME Awards, where they won five awards.

Check out the band’s video for “Arabella,” which was directed by Jake Nava. PRESS HERE to watch the band perform their new single “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High” from Late Show with David Letterman.
