Arctic Monkeys

Saturday, July 28, 2018

As of July 24th, 2018, I can officially say I have seen my favorite band in concert. The Pink Ladies headed to Forest Hills Stadium in New York to see the British band play some new songs off their most recent album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino (check out our review here) and some old favorites. Let me tell you, they did not disappoint, apart from the fact lead singer, Alex Turner, chopped his hair just in time for our show. 

 It's amazing how similar they sound live to their records. Alex's voice is just as good in concert as it is live... I might even say better, because of his note rifts and sassy remarks mid-song.

I was a bit worried about some of the older tunes not making the setlist, but the band knew not to cut old hits like "Do Me a Favour", "505" and "I Bet That You Look Good on the Dance Floor".
The crowd during was wild during the latter. It's the song that got everyone's attention and launched them to stardom. 

But the one that I waited impatiently, over the last five years, to hear was "Do I Wanna Know". And the wait was well worth it.

If you ever have the chance to see the Arctic Monkeys live, I beg that you do.

Until next time, their tunes will remain on repeat.
