See Alex Turner and co play their 2007 single on the first date of their homecoming shows at Sheffield's FlyDSA Arena.

Arctic Monkeys finally returned to their native Sheffield last night (18 September), kicking off the first of four dates at the FlyDSA Arena.

Their 22-track setlist included bangers from across their career and a rendition of their Fluorescent Adolescent track, which they played for the very first time on their current tour.

The 2007 Favourite Worst Nightmare single was given a Tranquility-esque facelift with frontman Alex Turner heading sitting at the piano to deliver a stripped-back haunting lounge version.

Watch them play the track in a video shared by ewrichardson on Instagram above.
