Arctic Monkeys Expand U.S. Tour

Following a sold-out U.S. club tour this spring, ultra-hyped British buzz band the Arctic Monkeys will kick off another U.S. headlining jaunt in support of their debut, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, beginning June 2nd in San Diego.

Released in the U.K. earlier this year, Whatever sold more than 350,000 copies its first week, becoming the fastest-selling debut in British history, and earned the Monkeys a heavyweight following that includes David Bowie, Mick Jagger and fellow British rock giants Oasis. In February, the album bowed more modestly on these shores — at Number Twenty Four — spearheaded by the single “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor.”

Despite the rapid ascension, the Sheffield, England quartet — singer/guitarist Alex Turner, guitarist Jamie Cook, bassist Andy Nicholson and drummer Matt Helders — are taking it all in stride. “Last year at this time, we were driving around playing shows near Sheffield,” Turner told Rolling Stone just before their spring jaunt. “Now, it feels like we’ll at least have a go at it.”
