It’sonly a matter of time until Alex Turner and his sharply dressed entourage punch well above arena level. Two colossal shows at Finsbury Park next May (23rd/24th) with Tame Impala, Miles Kane and Royal Blood called in for support duties.
The venue, Finsbury park has housed many historic moments, Jimi Hendrix burned his guitar onstage there, Morrissey was heckled off for performing National Front Disco there, The Stone Roses stopped off as part of their reunion tour there only this summer. It feels as though this statement event will join the ever long list of history and music at the London park, and will mark a significant moment in the timeline of a band who have almost done it all.
Be there or be square is certainly the message, tickets go on sale from 10am on Friday 22nd November here.
