Vaccines

Arctic Monkeys brought their live show back to Central Park Summerstage last night (5/24) in support of their forthcoming LP Suck It and See, which Alex Turner told Vanity Fair was written mostly in NYC where he lives with his girlfriend (the album is out June 7 via Domino). They played a hits-heavy set with a pretty even mix of material off all four albums. More about how they put together their setlist (which is listed below) at NY Mag.

Fellow UK band The Vaccines opened the show. More pictures from the NYC show are in this post.

Arctic Monkeys appear on Letterman tomorrow night (5/26), the same night they play Detroit. They just played on Jools Holland earlier this month, performing four tracks off the new album. Videos from that below.

They also recently filmed a video for the bluesy sludge track "Don't Sit Down Cause I've Moved Your Chair." The psychedelic video, complete with swirling colors and blurred images of the band playing, was directed by Focus Creeps and shot in the band's hometown of Sheffield.

So that's really the name of the new album?

Posted by Anonymous | May 25, 2011 4:26 PM

this is a pretty awful collection of photos

Posted by Anonymous | May 25, 2011 4:27 PM

First album was excellent and fresh.
Second one was pretty good.
Third one was boring and no longer fresh.

I stopped counting after that....sorry AM.

Average age of a fan looks about 14. I saw these dudes at the Bowery and they were decent at best. And I agree with 4:29, though I only heard the first two albums.

What fucking losers in this picture -

Wish you made it in? What does that even mean? I bought a ticket outside for 7 bucks. Like Pavement, you could not give these tickets away

4:35. You are the loser. Nothing so bad about those guys.

Suck it and see > Humbug > FWN > WPSIATWIN

If you didn't give Humbug a proper listen, and have discarded this new one already, you're seriously missing out

Don't need to feel bad about him. I'm sure he's having way more fun than you, an old unhappy hipster that has nothing better do to than say shit on BV.

Hey, what band is this I'm watching? Oh, right, Arctic Monkeys, it says so right there on the singer's shirt.

to the photographer: i so wish you could have focused that top shot on the blonde with stockings and boots in the background and not the dov charney model.

to the ass at 5:00pm who wrote this stellar piece of prose - "Say what you will, but this guy is the second coming of Scott Walker.": you dear bv reader are an idiot.

Another try and another disappoinment yet again. Unless you are right in front of the speakers, the sound is horrific and you can hear people talking. Turn it up....but that aint happening.

"very gifted songwriter" Lets not use the word "gifted." The word is thrown around MUCH too loosely, like "genius" or "hero."

exactly and thank you. i always bring it back to dylan. look what dylan had accomplished when he was that age, and as of yesterday, he's still rockin' at 70. case closed.

There were a lot of people looking for tickets outside. At least 5 people asked me on my way in. $7 comment is bullshit.

it is nice that we have the #1 arctic monkey sycophant in the house; to put down everyone who posts anything negative about the band, or the kid in the first photo

Posted by Anonymous | May 25, 2011 7:46 PM

Most of the commentators here have absolutely no clue what they're talking about. Arctic Monkeys shit on the majority of today's top bands from great heights.

Sucks ball eh???.......Alex Turner in 5 years has turned in 4 Arctic Monkeys albums 1 side project (Last shadow Puppets) and the Soundtrack to the movie Submarine.
His song writing is intelligent witty and prolific.
He also has a great sense of irony. Please inform me of anyone within our current batch of musicians who can match him.......oh and the AM have also Headlined Glastonbury and Reading.

Personally, I thought there was wayyyyy too many fucking pre-pubescent teenagers. Jesus, what a shovefest. Was there a fucking need? No.

Its not a Megadeth concert, lets chill and enjoy it.

This is why 18+ concerts have better people and most of all, stoners that don't do shit like that.

Overall, alright show. The openers were so generic, must admit. Its a shame they didn't play A Certain Romance.

Posted by Sam | May 25, 2011 8:45 PM

8:12 might actually be Alex Turner

ur a dumbass. us teenagers dont shove u to be assholes, we shove people because its hard to dance when all u menopausal fucks are standing still worrying about being sore and tired for your morning shift at target. fuckers

Awesome show last night, the crowd was a bit rough though. It was nice to see The Strokes and Adam Green off in the VIP section happily watching.

By the way, that was to 9:47 who has no balls to show his real name.

Anyway, you call that dancing? That slam dancing shit is straight up fucking stupid.

"There were a lot of people looking for tickets outside. At least 5 people asked me on my way in. $7 comment is bullshit."

Oh you pea brained piece of shit. I was the original $7/ticket comment and that was far from bullshit. There were not tons of people looking for tickets you little liar. You are probably the same idiot who is posting how Alex Turner is a genius or whatever. Cant deal with the fact that people were literally begging to sell their tickets to the band you worship.

The last 2 days Craigslist was full of people trying to sell for cheap. Stub Hub sellers the same. I believe there was even a poster on the "What's going on Tuesday" thread looking to dump their tickets to anyone who would take em.

Evidence is on my side dirtbag.

In my day, our parents didn't give us money for overpriced band tour shirts. We bought bootleg ones outside the venue and we liked it.

Arctic Monkeys rule. It took me awhile to get into them and they have a bunch of filler, but Alex Turner is a fucking great songwriter.

"O0o0oh I'm going to comment on BrooklynVegan's post and shit on a good band because I have nothing better to do with my life!"
- Almost everyone here.


How come whenever I read a review of a concert I went to, a great concert I went to, I have to be disappointed with the comments of faceless douche bags calling one of my favorite bands shit? When they were most likely not even there or haven't given the band a good listen?
Seriously, you all seem like pretentious teens with your panties in a twist. Calm down.

Posted by Melissa | May 26, 2011 4:19 PM

I agree with 4:19 - Alex, Nick, Matt and Jamie all have more talent in their pinkies than 95% of BV commentators combined.

A better question might be what kind of dipshit loser bothers reading reviews of shows that they actually attended?

Way late but after seeing 4Knots, Black Angels earlier this year, dragged to Foster The People with my sister, and seeing Sonic Youth the other day, I can easily say this concert was fucking horrible.

What a slam fest. Fuck this concert. Way too small a venue for half the shit that was going on.
