The Four Out of Five rockers will play the iconic London venue next month, in association with War Child UK.

Arctic Monkeys have announced a new date at London's Royal Albert Hall.

Alex Turner and co - who last week released their Tranquility Hotel and Casino album - will take to the iconic venue on 7 June 2018 for the gig which will be with War Child.

See their post below:

Tickets are available by applying to be in a ballot, which opens on Wednesday 16 May at 10am and closes on Sunday 20 May at 8pm. Full information on how to get tickets is on their official website.

Meanwhile, Noel Gallagher isn't sure about Arctic Monkeys' new album and hinted that they need more choruses.

Speaking to Gordon Smart ahead of his intimate Radio X gig at Watford Colosseum on Monday (14 May), the Oasis songsmith suggested the band's Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino album lacked choruses.

Asked about what he thinks of Alex Turner and co's sixth studio album, he replied: "Do you know what? I've just been listening to it in the car today on the way here... And I don't know what to make of it."

When the Radio X DJ said the record might not be what you expect from the band, the Holy Mountain rocker quipped: "No, you'd expect a few choruses. [It] hasn't got any of them".
