British rock royalty Arctic Monkeys have ushered in a spectacular new era with their sixth studio album, Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, and now Frontier Touring is over the moon to announce the band’s return to New Zealand for a mammoth arena show in March 2019. 

Alex Turner and co. will play Auckland’s Spark Arena and joining them will be friends and collaborators Mini Mansions, the LA trio featuring members of Queens of the Stone Age, and The Last Shadow Puppets. 

The news comes fresh after the Arctic Monkeys announced a new two-track digital bundle, featuring a previously unreleased b-side ‘Anyways’, out 30 November (through Domino/Universal Music New Zealand). The band have also shared Warp Speed Chic, a short film directed by Ben Chappell and originally shown as part of the band’s AM:ZM exhibitions in London and Sheffield alongside the photography of Zackery Michael.
