Arctic Monkeys have performed Dancing Shoes for the first time since 2014.

Alex Turner and co kicked off their first official UK tour dates last night (6 September) at Manchester Arena, where they treated fans to a live version of the track for the first time in four years.

Watch them play the belter - which is taken from their 2006 debut album Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not - in our video above.

The indie banger appeared amongst a show-stopping 21-track setlist which included songs from their Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino album and hits from across their career.

Not one to disappoint, I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor preceded the band's encore, which consisted of Star Treatment, Arabella and R U Mine?
