Arctic Monkeys confirm London Forum as secret gig

Yup that's right and it sold out in minutes.

Mailing list subscribers were given ultimate priority over ticket sales.

"<i>As previously announced by Steve Lamacq on Radio 1, Arctic Monkeys shall be performing live at The Forum, London on Thursday 24 th August. Support comes from Klaxons. Tickets go on sale now.</i>" arcticmonkeys.com

The reason for this secret show and the mailing list priority was to give the genuine fans priority over possible touts. Fans may only collect their tickets/wristbands on the door which also prevents touting.

For those of you who got tickets, well done, for those of you who didn't, better luck next time and you'll possibly have to wait a few months for a chance.
Stay tuned.

Rubbing it in?
I could have got 4 tickets but I can't be arsed with travelling to London. It would cost a fortune.

What happened to Sheffield lads?? Now a secret gig at The Sheffield Forum would have been a real treat for true fans! would love to have gone to London but work wouldn't understand the vital need to take day of before bank holiday!

Funny!
I never go to gigs?
Guess who I'm going to see on the 21st September.....

Put it this way for the London Arctic Monkeys, it's 300 miles, Tickets £15-20, Train, well a ticket from Sheffield to London aint cheap, and I'm skint at the moment what with all my mates owing me money for the Milburn gig.
I stupidly paid with my card.

Anyway Scott, don't forget to answer the question.
