From the moment the Arctic Monkeys first hit the music scene, they have been delivering a unique musical style that has left audiences and critics alike mesmerized. With a sound that has been described as everything from pop-rock to hardcore, indie, punk and everything in between; defining the sound of the Arctic Monkeys can be a challenge; however it is easy for anyone to see that no matter what you want to call their sound, there is nothing quite like it in music today.The Arctic Monkeys first hit the music scene in 2002 and began touring in venues across the globe; by the time they released their first full length debut solo album Whatever People Say I Am That’s What I’m Not in 2006, the record became the fastest-selling debut album in British music history. This title has yet to be broken and is just one example of how the Arctic Monkeys have left a major mark on today’s music scene. This album was also responsible for giving the band two number one single tracks.Since that wildly successful debut album, the Arctic Monkeys have continued on with building their success in the music industry and have four successful albums, numerous high-grossing tours, and handfuls of UK music records to their name in just a few short years in the industry. By the time their third album Humbug was released in 20009; fans of the group were eager for the band to head out on a massive global tour to bring their live music to even more audiences. This demand from their fan base lead to the 2009-2010 “Humbug Tour” which brought the band up close and personal with some of their biggest fans and solidified the group as one of the biggest rock bands in the industry today.The success of this tour sparked a 2012 North American tour for the band and tour dates that are set for 2013 as well. This tour features some of the greatest Arctic Monkeys hits of the last three albums as well as new selections for their latest record Suck It and See. Fans who are looking for Arctic Monkeys tickets, especially in North America will want to act fast as the band has announced plans to head back to the UK later in the year to start recording another record.
