Arctic Monkeys @ Cedar Park Center – 10/28/2014
Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner caught the crowd at the Cedar Park Center Tuesday unaware, slinking onstage during opening act Mini Mansions and hijacking vocals from drummer (and Queens of the Stone Age bassist) Michael Shuman. Turner hinted at the 90-minute spectacle to come with a brief but seductive verse that left screaming girls in his wake.
“Thanks to Arctic Monkeys,” Shuman said with good cheer. “Thanks to our fourth member.”
A quarter after 9pm, the crowd surged forward, greeting the entire English quartet this time. Outstretched hands furiously photographed their every move as the rockers burst into the opening track of their fifth LP, last year’s AM. His face obscured by smoke and shadows, Turner put his expression in the subtle swing of his hips. [Austin Chronicle]
Arctic Monkeys brought their current tour to Texas for a few shows, including Austin’s Cedar Park Center on Tuesday (10/28) with Mini Mansions, a related band of their pals QOTSA. AM’s 20-song set included most of their newest album and plenty of older favorites too.
Before they leave TX, they’ve got one more show in Woodlands tonight (10/30). More pictures from the Austin show, and their setlist, below…
