It was 2002 when Arctic Monkeys formed in the north English city of Sheffield. Featuring the distinctive, aggressively enunciated lead vocals of Alex Turner, the band features a classic lineup: two guitars and a bass across the front, drums in the back.

Famously unwilling to sit still and commit to any one sound, the Arctic Monkeys’ genre varies from album to album. Its discography spans from indie rock to hip hop to garage grunge. While this type of ambition doesn’t always land well with critics when other bands attempt it, with Arctic Monkeys it always seems to work. This might be because the way the band arranges its songs always stems from the same DNA source, or because Turner’s vocals are like nothing else on the scene.

The Arctic Monkeys experienced an unusual rise to fame. School friends Alex Turner, Matt Helders, and Andy Nicholson formed the band in 2002 as an instrumental-only project. Jamie Cook soon came on board as a second guitarist — it was he who came up with the name “Arctic Monkeys.” Turner soon got past his reluctance to be the band’s lead singer, and on June 13, 2003, the group played its first-ever gig at The Grapes in Sheffield.

Over the course of 2003, the band demoed 18 songs — a collection that would eventually be dubbed Beneath the Boardwalk. It gave the songs away on burned CDs at shows, which fans quickly began to file-share with one another. Its popularity began to grow across northern England, even gaining the attention of the BBC. In 2005, it recorded and self-released an EP called Five Minutes With Arctic Monkeys, which led the band to sign with Domino Recording Company.

In 2006, Arctic Monkeys released its debut album Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, which became the fastest-selling debut album in the history of the UK music charts. It’s also regarded as one of the greatest debut albums in history — no surprise that it won Best British Album in 2007 at the Brit Awards. The band even defeated the dreaded sophomore slump when its second album, Favourite Worst Nightmare, won the same award the following year.

It takes a lot of vision to craft an upward trajectory from a high starting point like that. Arctic Monkeys continued releasing new albums every two years or so: Humbug in 2009, Suck It and See in 2011, and AM in 2013. Every single one debuted at number one in the UK – a first for an independent-label band.

The Arctic Monkeys’ fifth album, AM, vaulted the band’s career forward, with the single “Do I Wanna Know?” from that album winning international fame. After topping four Billboard charts, the hit was given the vaunted platinum designation in the UM and won Best British Album in 2014.

If you’re trying to judge a band’s chutzpah, look no further than the choices it makes after achieving extreme success. After going platinum, the Arctic Monkeys took four years to craft Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino. Released in 2018, this album broke free from the band’s guitar-driven indie rock roots and moved to piano-based music. Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino was nominated for Best Alternative Music Album at the 2019 Grammys.

The Arctic Monkeys took another four years to perfect the sound for its next album. The Car, released in October 2022, debuted second on the charts in ten territories – and likely would have claimed the top spot if not for a new release by Taylor Swift at the same time.

As Arctic Monkeys tour dates continue to populate the calendar for 2022 and 2023, catch the band live to see one of the most exciting stage shows in the world right now. Turner’s songwriting along with the band’s arrangements and live stage team make it a must-see for this year. Find a concert near you on Songkick.

Live reviews

Seeing Arctic Monkeys not once, but twice, in two days was absolutely insane - I'd like to have rated it a Four out of Five simply for the pun but personally I think there's no doubt that the show(s) were as close to perfect as a concert can get. Mini Mansions were quite a decent support act - their set included a few fillers but ended on a high with an energetic rendition of Mirror Mountain. AM's setlist varied over the two nights but both nights were an amalgamation of songs from all six albums - a perfect blend of atmospheric, new TBHC songs and older, grungier hits. Live staples like Brianstorm, Pretty Visitors and Don't Sit Down Cause I've Moved Your Chair had everyone out of their seat, while there were also some (pleasantly) surprising inclusions like Library Pictures and From The Ritz To The Rubble (first time in Australia since 2009!!!). Both nights' encores concluded with a blistering performance of R U Mine? which was the perfect way to end such a intense night. Alex Turner's onstage antics oozed pure class combined with true rock n' roll - a highlight of the second night was the dance Alex did whilst holding a stool above his head! The crowd went crazy for that - as well as his famous hip gyrations, especially during Cornerstone! Matt was full of energy on the drums, Jamie and Nick were equally hyped - but nothing really compared to Alex's voice, both speaking and singing (which quite frankly I could listen to all day). The sound quality was utterly fantastic - you could not ask for more from a band - the only minor downside was the minimalistic, Kubrick-esque backdrop & stage - but Arctic Monkeys have never really been the type of band that relies on on-stage effects to transfix the audience… Alex does that quite adequately on his own! As a group of sixteen-seventeen year olds, myself and my friends were probably the youngest people there but it was refreshing to see a lot of people our age - the majority was (understandably) uni students. Such an outstanding pair of performances that I'm so glad I went twice (and to be honest it was so enthralling I genuinely could have gone a third time if there was another Melbourne show). Alex Turner is, in his own words, a CERTIFIED MINDBLOWER. A definite Five out of Five.

This was by far the best concert I have ever been to. Everyone on the crowd was just so wild, happy and full of energy. The whole crowd sang all of the songs and danced to it. That energy that I felt when I was there face to face with the Arctic Monkeys was incredible, I can’t even begin to explain it. I wish I could go back in time and rewatch that concert. I just love them, and their songs are extremely good. Alex’s voice was perfect last night. Jamie, Nick and Matt were amazing too.

The arena where the show took place was pretty good and had a nice space. It was a little crowded in the beginning, but then people just started to spread out.

The moment when 505 came on, everyone just danced calmly and sang along so well. We all turned on our cellphones flashlights so we could light it up.

Do I Wanna Know was my favorite song performed from last night. I love that beat and it’s my favorite song in the whole world. I wish I could listen to it played live everyday.

Honestly, going to the Arctic Monkeys concert was the best decision I have ever made in my life. I wish everyone could be there to feel the vibe with me. I also managed to buy myself a shirt, not from the official store because it was expensive, but from someone else selling them. It looks really good, it’s from the “Tranquility Base Hotel and Casino” album.

I just wish they would’ve played some other songs too, like “I Wanna Be Yours”, “Mardy Bum”, “No Buses”, “Despair in the Departure Lounges” and a couple others.

Alex sang pretty fast and wouldn’t give us a minute between each song, and unfortunately that resulted on the show going on by pretty quickly.

But despite it all, I loved it and it was the best night of my life so far. It was perfect, I miss it already.

Jamie, Nick, Alex and Matt, you guys are amazing. Thank you for everything last night. I will never forget it.

I'm a fan. I must start it off saying this, 'cause as a fan, they have never, ever let me down. I've been to three Arctic Monkeys live gigs, in different phases of the band. The first one, back in 2007 when we were all just kids wanting to have a blast, than in 2011 and finally last Friday, in front of a sold out 35 thousand people crowd. My favorite will always be the first one... I was young, reckless and hopeful because of this great band that had started online and was actually very good. But to see them all grown up and mature, and with complete control of that sea of people that was there just for them, was very, very meaningful. They interact less with the crowd than before, and have more of a rockstar attitude, but it suits them. It's all part of the show and it doesn't make them less charismatic at all. Specially Mr. Alex Turner. The setlist is a real trip through their career so far and even thought they had to cut a few fan favorites, the most meaningful songs are there, shining and evoking beautiful sing-a-longs. One of the highlights ended up being an acoustic rendition of "Mardy Bum", right before the last song, very effusively requested by the fans and beautifully delivered by Alex Turner, all by himself. Whenever he was not playing guitar and singing with his eyes closed, he would leave the guitar, hold the mic with two hands and dance like no one even knew he could. Oh, Mr. Turner... You've become quite the frontman! One of the most interesting things about them is that you'll get the same thrill by watching a large arena set and a small, intimate performance. Their songs are just that powerful. And these guys aren't even in their 30's yet! Long live to the Arctic Monkeys!

Arctic Monkeys, making me as giddy as a goat since 2002! Need I say anymore?

Some would say they have done the full 360 in their last 5 albums, but they still somehow manage to create something different and even more meaningful each time a new release comes along, which is what you want from a mainstream band.

As they have had to grow up as well as lock down their career in a relatively short period of time, their sounds represent a different stage in their lives from overnight success, heartache and self discovery. After hiding away in the desert to record an epic follow up album to 'Suck it and see' (Admirable contribution from Josh Homme) the sheer dedication to their music was sincerely portrayed in 'AM' and things got really serious over night. After a test drive of the new material at Glastonbury 2013, a few new hairstyles and a nonchalant attitude the band became pure rock and roll stars.

From small venues to outdoor arenas Arctic Monkeys can do no wrong - With carefully selected playlists to cover their early and playful classics such as 'I bet you look good on the dance floor' and 'Dancing shoes' right through to their seductive, jaw dropping, riff-tastic songs 'My propeller' and 'Don't sit down cause I moved your chair'. Frontman 'Sir' Alex Turner knows how to work a crowd with a bit of cheeky banter and endless appreciation to their fans, which is always an added bonus. With Arctic Monkeys, always expect the unexpected.

Arctic Monkeys is the most riveting mainstream band you could see live. They feature music from their first release to their last, create a powerful atmosphere for fans, and Alex Turner interacts with the crowd in a refreshing way with his exotic accent. Arctic Monkeys' music varies from upbeat to slower tempo, but in my opinion all of it is amazing. They could potentially play any venue successfully due to their great stage presence and how similar their live music is to their recorded music. I was astounded by their true talent, which is hard to find in mainstream music today with the excessive use of autotune and other enhancement programs. My favourite part of the concert was when they played "I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor" because it was a song that the majority of concert attendees knew and the vibe completely changed when they played the song. It brought new and old fans together and excited the audience. The most surprising thing was that I thought it wasn't going to be a very good concert due to the fact that I paid for last minute seats in the back, but honestly, it didn't affect the atmosphere at all! The concert was even better than most of the concerts I've been up close to in large venues. Overall, they played a great live show and it was one of the best concerts I've ever been to. I'd highly recommend buying tickets and experiencing some real musical talent and live playing.

The whole experience was amazing. Although the Lemon Twigs were down a brother (With Brian having to go home due to being ill) it did not effect their electric performance, finishing the set with one of their best songs 'As Long As Were Together'.

And then of course. The Arctic Monkeys came on and the crowd lost it before they'd even started playing. The set they played was a perfect balance between the new album and their older stuff and not a single person was sitting down by the last song. As they packed up and walked off the crowd (as is to be expected) started cheering for another song and as per usual Alex Turner does not disappoint! The boys came back on stage and bought the house down with 'I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor' and finally 'R U Mine'.

A perfect night.

Excellent! As always...

People aren't crazy about the new album but "Four out of Five" has enough swagger to start the gig and even though they played 505 a bit too early for me the catalogue and band's attitude is far more than enough to keep even the most cynical (me) happy.

That's where I draw the line. Forest Hills is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL venue and the weather was perfect but FLASH SEATS is a terrible experience. I had to transfer a ticket and we encountered issues that meant we missed the first few songs (you could hear 4/5 thankfully, but didn't see it).

Flash Seats...either get your app in order or just let us print the tickets at home like every other normal working ticket app...we didn't need another one but you've cornered a market for yourself.

Sort it out.

Finally, my long awaited chance to see Arctic Monkeys. Live. In concert. How can that not make anyone crazy with joy? Needless to say, THEY ROCKED. True, finding somewhere comfortable to sit in the Klipsch Lawns that wasn't covered in mud or bird poop was hard and stressful, but it all disappeared the second the electrifying riff of "Do I Wanna Know?" broke on stage. After that, all that worried me was completely gone as I soon found myself every single second. And oh yeah, White Denim know how to kick some butt as well, as they somehow managed to make and awesome concert even more enjoyable. My only regret? That the concert couldn't go on forever. Visually Stunning, musically vivid, here's to you Alex Turner and your Arctic Monkeys, may your music always be more than awesome!

I had an absolutely fantastic time seeing the Arctic Monkeys live, without a doubt. Their set list was delivered very well; the concert started with a few fun songs, wound down to slow songs, and build back up again to more fun songs to end the night with. They upheld their reputation of talent on their instruments, of course. These guys played in a way that made everyone in the crowd fell alive and on fire. Seeing them at an outside venue was marvelous. It was open so you weren't going deaf, there was a little more space between each person, and the sound was able to get to everyone without being overwhelming. The opener, White Denim, definitely impressed me. The whole experience was unforgettable. I love them more after this concert!

The Arctic Monkeys are amazing live. I was already in love with them just listening to their music on my phone. But live? Wow. Their lead singer, Alex Turner, has a lot of interesting and funny dance moves. For example, to the song "Don't Sit Down Cause I've Moved Your Chair" he acts out all the actions in the song. During the show, there were a lot of cool lights and everyone was having a good time. If you really need to read a review to decide whether or not you should go to the Arctic Monkeys concert, then you're not as in love with them as you should be in order to go to their concert. But since I've already written so much, I hope you divide to go because it is a truly unforgettable experience.

Arctic Monkeys Announce 2023 North American Tour

By Jazz Monroe

Arctic Monkeys Alex Turner

Arctic Monkeys have announced a string of North American dates behind The Car . The run begins in August 2023, and includes two nights at New York’s Forest Hills Stadium and one at the Kia Forum in Inglewood, California. They’ll be supported by Fontaines D.C. Check out the dates below.

Last week, the band shared a second single from The Car , “ Body Paint ,” along with a video directed by Brook Linder . The band also played the song on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The Car , which was produced by the band’s longtime collaborator James Ford, also includes lead track “ There’d Better Be a Mirrorball ” and a song called “ I Ain’t Quite Where I Think I Am ,” which the band has been playing live this year.

The Car follows 2018’s Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino , which came five years after Arctic Monkeys fifth album, AM . That record hit No. 1 on the UK charts, as did all of its predecessors. Since Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino , Arctic Monkeys have shared the B-side “ Anyways ,” performed for Austin City Limits , and released a live album for charity, recorded at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Arctic Monkeys at Emirates Old Trafford Manchester 2023 – stage times, support act, setlist, and more

The Sheffield lads are over in our neck of the woods for two massive gigs this week.

Emily Sergeant

Arctic Monkeys are set to play two massive shows at Emirates Old Trafford as part of their sold-out 2023 UK tour this week.

After having the crowd in the palm of their hands as they took to the stage in two other major UK cities this week, the Sheffield indie rock icons are finally making their way to visit us here in Manchester and will be be playing to around 50,000 adoring fans over two nights at Emirates Old Trafford .

The beloved four-piece, fronted by Alex Turner, with Matt Helders on drums, guitarist Jamie Cook, and bass player Nick O’Malley, are undoubtedly one of the most successful British bands of the 21st century after bursting onto the scene with their debut album back in 2006 – which became the fastest-selling debut album in UK chart history.

That’s just one of a handful of records the indie rockers have to their name throughout their celebrated careers, as well as claiming six UK number one albums, selling over 12 millions records, and taking home countless awards – including BRITs, GRAMMYs, and the coveted Mercury Prize .

They’ve also had headlining slots at some of the world’s most famous music festivals, including Glastonbury twice.

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Arctic Monkeys (@arcticmonkeys)

The band are playing in Manchester this week as part of their 2023 UK tour following the release of their critically-acclaimed seventh studio album, The Car , back in October 2022.

And they look set to put on a seriously memorable show.

So if you’re heading to see Arctic Monkeys at Emirates Old Trafford Manchester this weekend, then here’s everything you need to know.

arctic monkeys tour running time

When are Arctic Monkeys playing in Manchester?

Arctic Monkeys were originally only booked to play one night at Emirates Old Trafford on Friday 2 June, but after tickets sold-out in absolutely no time at all, the Sheffield band were quick to add a second Manchester date into the mix.

The band will now take to the stage on both Friday 2 and Saturday 3 June.

With Emirates Old Trafford having a maximum gig capacity of 50,000 people, this means that up to 100,000 fans could see the indie rockers live over the two nights.

Are there any tickets still available?

Given the sold-out first night, and the decision to add a second night due to the absolutely overwhelming demand by fans, as you might expect, tickets to both Arctic Monkeys dates in Manchester are extremely hard to come by at this point.

At the time of writing, popular ticketing website Ticketmaster showed their were no tickets available to purchase, although this could change at any moment, so it’s worth continuing to check.

Also make sure to keep your eye on SeeTickets here for any last-minute releases.

And if you try to buy tickets second-hand, please make sure you’re using a reputable resale site so you don’t get caught out by scammers.

Who is supporting Arctic Monkeys in Manchester?

Arctic Monkeys have two support acts lined up for both of the Manchester gigs.

arctic monkeys tour running time

The Hives are the first of two acts supporting Arctic Monkeys on both Friday 2 and Saturday 3 June.

With six studio albums to their name, the Swedish five-piece rock band rose to prominence in the early 2000s during the garage rock revival, and their mainstream success followed with the release of their second album,  Veni Vidi Vicious , which featured the hit single ‘Hate to Say I Told You So’.

The band has been acclaimed by music critics as one of the best live rock bands of the 21st century, so concertgoers are in for a real treat.

The Mysterines

The Mysterines are the second act supporting Arctic Monkeys, with the British alternative rock band hailing from Liverpool and the Wirral, and fronted by Lia Metcalfe, having enjoyed recent success following the release of their debut album, Reeling , back in March 2022 – which reached number nine on the UK Albums Chart.

Stage times

These are expected stage times, although everything is subject to change on the night.

  • Gates Open – 5pm (Friday) and 4:30pm (Saturday)
  • Support Acts – The first support act is expected on stage around 6:40pm .
  • Arctic Monkeys – Expected on stage anywhere from 8:45pm – 9pm .

Emirates Old Trafford says the gig will finish “no later than 10:30pm”, and you can find more FAQs on the venue’s website here .

What is the potential setlist?

Although nothing is confirmed, with artists and bands known to switch setlists up from gig to gig and throw in a few surprises here and there, depending on the energy of the crowd and what they’re feeling that night, Arctic Monkeys have been roughly following a particular order of songs since their 2023 UK tour began.

Here’s the setlist from their gig in Bristol earlier this week.

  • Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair
  • Snap Out of It
  • Crying Lightning
  • Teddy Picker
  • The View From the Afternoon
  • Four Out of Five
  • Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?
  • Arabella (with Pretty Visitors instrumental interlude)
  • My Propeller
  • Fluorescent Adolescent
  • Suck It and See
  • Do I Wanna Know?
  • There’d Better Be a Mirrorball
  • I Wanna Be Yours (John Cooper Clarke cover)
  • Sculptures of Anything Goes

How to get to Emirates Old Trafford

There are, of course, a number of ways to get to Emirates Old Trafford, but as more 300,000 people are expecting to be descending on Manchester’s major venues for musical events this week, Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) has been advising that the Metrolink will be the “quickest and most-reliable way” of travelling in and around the city centre.

TfGM has also strongly encouraged that people making their way to either of the two Arctic Monkeys “plan ahead” due to coordinated rail strikes by Aslef and RMT unions on both Friday 2 and Saturday 3 June.

📣 It's a busy time for Manchester over the coming week!

The closest Metrolink stop is Old Trafford , which is located next to Emirates Old Trafford, but it will be busy both before and after the concerts, so you could also use  Trafford Bar  for both southbound journeys on the East Didsbury or Airport lines, and for journeys back to the city centre.

The last tram from Old Trafford to the city centre will depart at 1:08am and towards Altrincham at 12:29am, while the last tram from Trafford Bar to East Didsbury will depart at 11:46pm and to the Airport at 11:31pm.

Oh, how the months roll over; we can’t believe it’s the end of May and we’re on to yet another list of amazing Manchester artists for you to get stuck into.

We’re sure you’re already on to most of them, you cultured lot, and even if not, that’s what we’re here for.

If you’ve not found yourself on this monthly series before, the concept is pretty simple: every few weeks we spotlight the most exciting Manchester bands and artists we’ve had on our radar recently.

Revolutionary, we know. But seriously, it’s as important as ever that we big up the names coming out of our region, so let’s not waste any more time, shall we?

1. Pale Waves

This time we’re starting off with the wonderful Pale Waves who we recently had the pleasure of seeing at Slam Dunk North over in Leeds.

It’s always good to see Manc bands drawing big crowds on the festival circuit and they certainly did that. These guys have been making a big name for themselves for a few years now and are even set to headline the Neighbourhood all-dayer in the city centre later this year, so it’s no surprise really.

We’ve been lucky enough to catch them live a few times now but if you’ve never heard their mix of pop-punk, alt-rock and often twinkly 80s-influenced indie before, we’d say start with ‘Television Romance’, work your way to ‘There’s a Honey’ and then ‘Jealousy’. That should give you a good broad-strokes idea.

Next up is another fast-rising homegrown talent in Corella , who finally dropped their debut album, Once Upon a Weekend , at the start of this month and we’ve been rinsing it ever since.

Infectious modern indie typified, we’ve been listening to these lads ever since ‘Barcelona Girl’ and they just keep getting better – as typified by them selling out the O2 Ritz on… oh, would you look at that? It’s tonight.

If you didn’t get a ticket for their landmark hometown show, you can also catch them at NBHD 2024 and as for what tracks you should listen to in preparation, the single from 2017 that we’ve already mentioned is where we started, ‘Drifting’ is in our rotation and simply nothing beats ‘Bloom’. A great running track.

Still riding high on the wave from KOKO 🌊 This tour so far has been the best yet and London was something we’ve only ever dreamt of, but you guys made it possible. More of this in a few days Norwich & Manchester! pic.twitter.com/tmefNMpRJM — Corella (@Corellamusic) May 26, 2024

3. Matthew Halsall

A big genre change now and we’re going modern jazz . Make that spiritual jazz, to be specific, and it’s certainly how we feel when we listen to this bloke: in tune with our spirit.

The Manc trumpeter, composer and producer has a real knack for making music that you want to relax, create and cook to, as well as a whole host of other moods. We often find him playing whilst staring out the window with a brew or with our heads back on the sofa as we close our eyes and simply drift away.

As for your jumping-off points, ‘Calder Shapes’ crops up in our playlists most often but ‘Cherry Blossom’ is a lovely lo-fi option on a chilled Sunday afternoon, and his tune ‘Into Forever’ with his record label’s Gondwana Orchestra is another gentle but transportive favourite of ours. We could go on forever.

4. Rosellas

In at number four, we’ve got Rosellas , who’ve steadily worked their way up through various club sets across the UK and North in particular, even playing City Square over at the Etihad Stadium, and are now starting to gain even more traction.

They can turn their hand to most stuff really, be it the all-important catchy hook, a decent indie bouncer or the equally communal feeling soft, acoustic-driven ballad, but there’s something very 90s/early 2000s and quintessentially Manc about their music.

We’ll admit that we can’t quite place what it is beyond perhaps the guitar riffs themselves, but maybe you’ll have better luck than we have so far. Our trio of picks are ‘Slowdance’, ‘Switch Off’ and ‘Damaged’.

Last but not least, we’ve got a band so new to the Manchester music scene that they’ve only got two songs out for you to get stuck into but we’re going to be watching them closely indeed.

Don’t be fooled by the name, they’re a four-piece with hints of everything from Inhaler to Catfish and the Bottlemen, as well as pretty much every current indie band that’s doing anything good in modern indie rock, hence why we think they’re going to pick up momentum quickly.

The best part is, you can get on the bandwagon early by listening to ‘Subconscious’ and ‘C’est La Vie’. Plus, if there’s one thing we know about bands from around here it’s that they graft and we’re going to guess that you can expect another new tune soon enough.

It’s not every day you stumble upon pubs that hold a Guinness World Record, so it’s pretty weird that in Stalybridge you can see two of them at once.

And these two record-breaking pubs have earned their place in the history books for two completely different reasons.

Standing almost side-by-side, you’ll find The Old Thirteenth Cheshire Astley Volunteer Rifleman Corps Inn, and The Q.

In case you hadn’t yet guessed it, one holds the record for the longest pub name, while the other has the shortest.

The Old Thirteenth Cheshire Astley Volunteer Rifleman Corps Inn – or, as it’s more commonly known locally, The Rifleman was added to the Guinness World Record books in 1995.

It was also given a blue plaque the same year.

It’s a name so long, it takes up the entire length of the building, and doesn’t exactly trip off the tongue after you’ve had a few pints inside.

The pub reopened in 2019 with new owners, who decided to keep the incredibly long name (even though they were charged by the letter for the new sign outside).

The Old Thirteenth Cheshire Astley Volunteer Rifleman Corps Inn has the longest pub name

The Rifleman is also a pretty affordable watering hole, with cask ales starting from just £2.80.

And its remarkable name is made all the more remarkable by its neighbour, The Q, which has the shortest pub name in Great Britain.

The Q Inn has been a Stalybridge staple for decades, and also made it into the Guinness Book of Records in 1995.

The cosy pub sprawls across two levels and has an enormous beer garden out the back.

It’s also home a pack of beautiful resident beagles, who’ll dutifully potter up to welcome every guest who enters the pub.

Did you know about these two record-holding pubs?

Arctic Monkeys will play the first of two live shows in Manchester tonight as they continue their UK tour.

The Sheffield band, made up of Alex Turner, Matt Helders, Nick O’Malley and Jamie Cook, are touring off the back of the release of their seventh studio album, The Car , released in October last year.

They have already played shows in Bristol and Coventry, and have a packed schedule up and down Britain in June before headlining Glastonbury Festival for the third time later this month.

What time will Arctic Monkeys be on stage tonight?

Arctic Monkeys are playing at the Old Trafford cricket ground, where gates will open at 4.30pm.

The Hives and The Mysterines are supporting the main act. The support is expected to begin at around 6.40pm, with Arctic Monkeys likely to take the stage between 8.45-9pm.

The gig should be over no later than 10.30pm.

What is the setlist for the show?

Arctic Monkeys have delighted fans by bringing back some old classics so far, including “Mardy Bum”, which they had not played on a tour for a decade.

They opened the tour with it in Bristol earlier this week, and also played it in Coventry.

Here’s the full setlist from the Bristol show: Mardy Bum Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair Brianstorm Snap Out of It Crying Lightning Teddy Picker The View From the Afternoon Four Out of Five Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High?

Formed in Sheffield, Arctic Monkeys consists of Alex Turner, Jamie Cook, Nick O'Malley, and Matt Helders, their debut album, ' Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not', became the fastest-selling debut album in UK chart history in 2006, and quickly earned them a loyal fan base, who have been with them ever since.

Rumours of a new tour had been building amongst fans following the announcement of their new album and their appearance at Leeds and Reading Festival in summer 2022. The Arctic Monkeys last played at Emirates Old Trafford in 2007 and will be supported by The Hives, and Liverpudlian four-piece, The Mysterines.

With a planned national train strike on both show dates (on Friday 2 June and Saturday June 3), Manchester is currently bracing for what is expected to be the 'busiest days of the year so far' with thousands travelling in and out of the city for Arctic Monkeys as well as Elton John's farewell tour and Coldplay's four-night stint at the Etihad Stadium .

They formed in 2015 and Their debut album 'Reeling' was released in March last year via Fiction Records and charted at number 9 on the UK album charts.

Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys at Leeds festival in 2014

Arctic Monkeys announce first live dates since 2014

The Sheffield band are expected to release their sixth album later this year

Arctic Monkeys have announced their first live dates since 2014. The Sheffield band will play a number of European and American festivals this summer. The sole UK appearance announced so far is a headline slot at Glasgow’s TRNSMT festival on 1 July.

The four-piece start their run at Barcelona’s Primavera Soundon 2 June . Other European dates include the Netherlands’s Best Kept Secret (8 June) and Finland’s Flow (11 August). The group have announced one US appearance, at Firefly festival in Delaware (14–17 June).

Arctic Monkeys are expected to release their sixth studio album later this year. They went on hiatus after headlining Reading festival in 2014, with frontman Alex Turner telling NME it was the “perfect place to leave things for a while”. In 2016, they teased work on a new album via a series of gnomic Instagram posts, and last September bassist Nick O’Malley confirmed that progress was underway for a planned 2018 release.

We're pleased to announce our 2018 festival dates. Full information at https://t.co/j1hCeXFZBM pic.twitter.com/0LSBftUUZb — Arctic Monkeys (@ArcticMonkeys) January 29, 2018

The as-yet untitled album follows 2013’s AM , which reached No 1 in the UK charts and featured singles including Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High? and the Grammy-nominated Do I Wanna Know?

During the band’s break, Turner released Everything You’ve Come to Expect , the second album with his other band the Last Shadow Puppets. Drummer Matt Helders contributed to Iggy Pop’s 2016 album Post Pop Depression , which also featured Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age. The band’s debut, 2006’s Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, was recently revealed to be the biggest-selling Mercury prize winner of all time.
