A Set List Of Things That Happened At Arctic Monkeys


Four Out Of Five. Doesn't time fly? Months since we booked our tickets to see Arctic Monkeys, it finally happened on Friday.

Brianstorm. We got top marks for not trying and got right to the front.

Snap Out Of It. 15-year old fangirl Amy well and truly resurfaced on Friday and I still can't snap out of it.

Crying Lightning. One of the most surreal things I've experienced at a gig was the support act actually getting heckled off the stage, which consisted of the strange premature departure of the lead singer after repeatedly whacking himself on the head with his mic...yes, really. 

One Point Perspective. We quite literally lost our train of thought when the next day we managed to be half an hour early for our train only to miss it because we were too busy watching videos from the night before.

Teddy Picker. I was planning on putting something on Instagram stories the same night, but I was actually so overwhelmed I had to save it for the morning after.

One For The Road. Getting tickets for Newcastle was a double whammy of happy and such a nostalgic feeling looking around the arena knowing I've been here before because it was where I saw my very first concert (Smash Hits cause I was cool). 

Don't Sit Down 'Cause I've Moved Your Chair. I certainly didn't expect the middle aged woman behind me to start a fight and I certainly didn't expect her to try to strangle a guy...

505. Cue me and Ashton afterwards googling any other upcoming Arctic Monkeys gigs whether they'd take a seven hour flight or a 45 minute drive.

Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino. We popped on Arctic Monkeys while we were getting ready (obviously) to really get me in the mood.

The Ultracheese. As soon as the first song started the crowd surged forwards and went mad, which I haven't experience in a while, but didn't that used to be part of the fun?

Dancing Shoes. While we were waiting and waiting for Arctic Monkeys to come onstage I was whacked on the head, called 'huffy' and nearly deafened. I'm the innocent party here.

Knee Socks. I bought a sweater and some socks, despite the fact that I'll probably just wear them to walk around the house, although the sweater is only low key fangirl so who knows...

Do Me A Favour. I think I'm going to be mourning the gig for several hours or several weeks because it was just SO good. 

Cornerstone. Despite there being a lot of pushing and shoving like at any gig, we were luckily surrounded by mostly lovely people who apologised awfully politely whenever they were squashed up against us. 

Pretty Visitors. Sorry for fangirling (again), but you can't beat that moment they first came on stage and started playing. Everyone waved their arms. 

Do I Wanna Know? Ashton managed to catch my favourite part of 505 on her phone and I still play it on repeat until I fall asleep, much to Nick's annoyance.

Arabella. Forget that little lady Arabella, we've already decided that the next song Alex Turner writes is going to be titled Girl In The CrowdYes, it's about me.

Star Treatment. Golden boy's certainly not in bad shape. Those hips though...need I say more?

Mardy Bum. A perfect description of me getting sad before it was even over because I knew it was about to be...I'd certainly got the face on.

I Bet That You Look Good On The Dancefloor. You bet wrong Alex. At this point, I'm pretty sure I was just a squished head poking out of the crowd screaming lyrics and holding onto Ashton for dear life.

R U Mine? R U Alex?
