Band will bring their global tour of last year’s ‘AM’ to a close this weekend (August 22-24)
Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner has said that the band’s headline sets at Reading & Leeds Festivals this weekend “seems like the perfect place to leave things for a while.”The band have toured their latest album ‘AM’ around the world since headlining Glastonbury in 2013 and will play Reading & Leeds this weekend (August 22-24) alongside fellow headliners Blink-182, Paramore and Queens Of The Stone Age.
Turner speaks of his memories of the festivals, both as a performer and a fan. “This festival has a special place in our hearts as it is the only one at which we’ve truly enjoyed the ‘360 experience’. As teenagers we attended a few times and fond memories were forged.”He continues: “We’ve seen a lot of festival crowds over the last 10 summers but this one is different, especially for us as it’s the one we were once a part of. Like when we were youths it’s a weekend we are once again very much looking forward to and seems like the perfect place to leave things for a while.”
