Arctic Monkeys have announced a run of arena shows in Ireland later this year which will mark the final shows of their world tour in support of The Car.

The group will play three headline dates at Dublin’s 3Arena on October 15, 17 and 19, as well as a one-off show at Belfast’s SSE Arena on October 16.

Miles Kane will act as support for the shows, which will act as something as a consolation for the Emerald Isle after the group was forced to shelve a show at Dublin’s Marlay Park earlier this summer when frontman Alex Turner was hit by acute laryngitis.

Ticketholders for those original gigs will now receive a unique access code and given the chance to take advantage of a priority pre-sale to buy tickets, kicking off at 9am BST this Friday (August 25).

All remaining tickets will then be made available at 9am BST next Tuesday (August 29) and you can buy them here.

Reviewing the group’s third Glastonbury headline slot earlier this summer, Rolling Stone UK wrote: “The band manage to curate a set which perfectly melds together songs from over 15 years of being at the top of their game, and by the look of the Cheshire-cat grins on their faces for the entire set, have a hell of a lot of fun doing it. Here’s to another few decades of being one of the best bands on the planet.”
