Fans React to Arctic Monkey Tour Ticket Prices
Some fans are complaining about ticket prices for the upcoming Arctics tour.With an upcoming tour announced yesterday, Arctic Monkeys have been trending on Twitter today for all the wrong reasons. Some fans of the Sheffield group have been left disappointed by the ticket cost of the latest tour, with some tickets costing as much as £80. Upon announcing the UK tour taking place this September, which includes a stop at the FlyDSA arena in their home city of Sheffield, Arctic Monkeys have left fans debating between themselves about how much it is worth paying the price to see them. One fan commented that it would be more in the spirit of rock'n'roll to go see an upcoming local band than go to an arena show with steep ticket prices.
apparently the quality of an arctic monkeys show has improved so much it’d cost twice that of the last tour. daylight robbery pic.twitter.com/sFaEpPpOaD— sammy b (@psycho_jam) April 9, 2018
