Arctic Monkeys Fans Are Not Impressed With Ticket Prices

"Daylight robbery"

Several UK & Irish fans of the indie-rock band, Arctic Monkeys, are not having it with the spike in ticket prices compared to their previous tour.

To commemorate the release of their sixth studio album Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, the British band announced some arena tour dates on their home soil this September. Sites like Ticketmaster and SeeTickets are selling them for around £45 and £80 (around $80 – $140 CAN) – and lets just say fans are less than stoked about it.

You got to love some of their sassy remarks.

Naturally, many feel like the prices are extremely expensive compared to the AM tour in 2013 – some pointing out that tickets were around the £30-£50 ($50-$90 CAN) range then.

However, others are just excited for the band to hit the road, ignoring the price and ready to spend whatever the cost may be on their fav band.

John Corr of Sound Moves (live entertainment company) commented on fans reactions. “People complain about the cost of the tickets… but when they understand the scale of what goes on in the background they begin to get an understanding of why we’ve got to the cost we have.”

He also mentions that the price is dependant on the experience. “Do they want a musical performance or do they want a show?” he stated. Safe to say, the higher ticket prices may mean a more epic show!
