Arctic Monkeys could be planning a Sheffield homecoming show

Get on your Dancing Shoes

Arctic Monkeys are rumoured to be announcing three gigs at Hillsborough Park after SJM concerts have reportedly applied to host three dates between June 4 and 6 in 2021.

There has been no official confirmation but an application has been made to Sheffield Council for the “provision of live music” and alcohol, suggesting the possibility for 3 outdoor concerts.

Since the release of their sixth album, the band have been rumoured to be returning for an iconic homecoming at Hillsborough Park.

In 2018, they were expected to be gracing Hillsborough Park with four gigs, with SJM promotions making a similar approach to Sheffield City Council.

AM are Sheff gems

The application was initially thought to be successfully however, it was later withdrawn. They did however perform four nights at the FlyDSA Arena in 2018.

The group are keen Sheffield Wednesday supporters, and would therefore be attracted by the possibility of performing right by Hillsborough stadium.

The “Four out of Five” rockers were also rumoured to have been approached by Tramlines Festival in 2018, which never materialised.

The potential for Arctic Monkeys homecoming shows could spark rumours of a new album too.

AM played Leadmill when they were starting out

Drummer Matt Helders previously stated after the release of “Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino” that fans wouldn’t have to wait “another five years” for another album.

By June 2021, it would be over three years since their last record.

Very few bands would be able to sell out Hillsborough Park which has a capacity of between 30,000-40,000. Tramlines 2020 is set to take place between July 31 and August 2 too at the venue too with The Kooks, Madness and Ian Brown amongst those headlining.
