Arctic Monkeys Announce First Show in Over Three Years

January 11, 2018
The Arctic Monkeys are headed to The Woodlands to play Firefly Festival this June—a big deal considering this is the first show they’ve announced since their last string of dates in Fall 2014.

Fingers. Crossed. In any case, the band will headline Firefly alongside The Killers, Kendrick Lamar, and Eminem, with other notable bands on the lineup, including Odesza, Portugal. The Man, Foster The People, Alt-J, Lord Huron, Rag N’ Bone Man, Royal Blood, Cold War Kids, Jimmy Eat World, Alice Merton, Welshly Arms, Courtship., The Glorious Sons, and tons more.
