Arctic Monkeys live 2014

Fans have begun to speculate about huge gigs for the AM rockers after Sheffield City Council issued a notice for a music licence application at Hillsborough Park.

Arctic Monkeys fans have been whipped up into a frenzy after notices about a "live music" event were found across the band's native Sheffield.

Licence applications were posted in the band's hometown, which appear to reveal that SJM Concerts have applied for a four-day music event to take place at Hillsborough Park.

The application is for "up to a maximum of 4 dates during the month of September during the hours 16:00 and 22:30".

It also mentions the "sale of alcohol" and "the provision of regulated entertainment," "live music," and "recorded music".

Fans have reacted as you might expect to the news, with some already booking hotels during the month of the proposed event.

Looking at the band's string of festival dates on their official website, the evidence is certainly compelling- with a plenty of space left for them to play the gigs in September. 

If the rumours are indeed true, it would mark the second UK gig announcement for the band in 2018, after their headline slot at TRNSMT festival.

It would also be the first homecoming gig since they played the Sheffield Motorpoint Arena in 2013.
