Yes, we know that 2020 took away the festivals and live concerts, but despite that situation that hurts all those who love music, artists and bands all over the world have stepped up to make these times more enjoyable. Some preferred to compose songs in quarantine and release them, but others like the Arctic Monkeys, preferred to search in the trunk of memories and surprise their fans.
In mid October, Alex Turner, Matt Helders, Nick O’Malley and Jamie Cook announced that they would release their second album live. Is about the presentation they gave on June 7, 2018 at the Royal Albert Hall from London, during the Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino tour, where in addition to playing songs from his most recent studio album and other gems from his discography, had a beneficial purpose.

Arctic Monkeys previews their new album live
The Arctic Monkeys gave this concert to support War Child UK, a non-profit organization supports children recovering from the physical and psychological consequences of surviving war. As on that occasion and on that occasion, the Sheffield gang’s goal is to launch this material live to donate all the profits to the same foundation, who were left without funds due to the pandemic.
And to get even more excited about the arrival of this album, Alex Turner and company shared with us a small preview than we can hear. The setlist of this show included, as we mentioned before, the tracks from his latest album, but they also took time to play some old songs that fans love to hear at each of their shows, and among all of them we have “505”.
This time, Arctic Monkeys didn’t have the good Miles Kane on guitar for this version, but there it was Cameron avery from Tame Impala and Pond, which gave this shifty a special touch. And as in all his presentations, hethey prayed for thousands of people to tear their throats singing along with them, especially when the phrase “But I crumble completely when you cry” sounds, which breaks many of them completely.
Live At The Royal Albert Hall, the band’s new live album will be available in physical format and on digital platforms next December 4. But while we wait for it to come to us to throw it out completely, listen to what “505” sounds like live below:
