Sheffield rockers Arctic Monkeys share a short documentary film that captures some memorable footage from their South American tour.
The clip marks the end of their ‘AM’ world tour and it has certainly been an eventful experience.
The six minute video features the band back stage teasing each other, playing a game of tennis, strolling along the many fine South American beaches and performing their hit single ‘R U Mine?’.
Overthe past few months, there has been no shortage of drama following the band during their world tour.
In August, A man was hospitalised after being bitten during an Arctic Monkeys concert. The Sheffield foursome were headlining the annual music festival Lollapalooza, at Grant Park in Chicago. The bite victim, 29-year-old Ben Lenet, posted his account of the incident on Reddit.
And just over a month ago, the Sheffield band rushed to Twitter to caution about the “fraudulent promotion” of a show that isn’t even scheduled to take place. They told fans not to buy any tickets for the nonexistent gig.
Concert posters began appearing all over the streets of the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur, describing a fake show taking place on February 28th. The band denied the gig was taking place, confirming suspicions that it was scammer trying to make a quick buck.
During the summer, frontman Alex Turner told NME that fans might have to wait a while for a new record. Turner said: “I’ve written a few things, but I’m not in a hurry. We’re going to keep going [with touring] until the summer and beyond that a little bit, maybe. I don’t know. I wouldn’t think it’ll be too soon that we do the next one.”
