Seattle Gay News has learned that UK's famed foursome Arctic Monkeys will perform at The Showbox on May 3. A ticket pre-sale begins tomorrow (7am PST) on the band's official website, www.arcticmonkeys.com, and www.theriotvan.com.
Arctic Monkeys have been a heavy favorite of the Seattle Gay News since the pre-release of their remarkable debut Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not (SGN's Top Ten Albums/CDs, 2006), featuring the single "I Bet You Look Good on the Dance Floor" (SGN's Top 25 Singles/Tracks, 2005). The punk quartet was nominated for two Grammy Awards and won a number of accolades overseas in the past year.
This concert will sell out super fast, so we recommend getting tickets ASAP. Tickets for the general public go on sale March 16.
