A musician with a deep connection to the band will be a “special guest” for the shows.

Arctic Monkeys have announced three new Dublin gigs after cancelling a concert in the Irish capital earlier this summer.

The band were supposed to play in Marlay Park on Tuesday, 20 June. However, the Sheffield rockers took to social media the day before the scheduled show to say that lead singer Alex Turner was suffering from acute laryngitis and had been ordered to rest.

Apologising for the cancellation, the group said that full refunds would be credited back into ticket purchasers’ accounts by Ticketmaster.

Now though, Arctic Monkeys have announced four new Irish concerts – three of which will be held in Dublin’s 3Arena, with the other happening in Belfast’s SSE Arena.

The dates for the Dublin shows are 15, 17, and 19 October 2023. Miles Kane, Turner’s bandmate in his side project The Last Shadow Puppets, will be a “special guest” for the Irish gigs.

According to the rockers, those who held a ticket to the cancelled Marlay Park gig will be sent a unique access code to be given 72-hour priority pre-sale access to purchase tickets starting at 9 am on Friday, 25 August.

All remaining tickets will be made available for sale at 9 am on Tuesday, 29 August.

Arctic Monkeys have said the Irish gigs will “mark the end of their world tour”, which follows the release of their seventh album The Car last year.
