Published Oct 28, 2020With touring off the table for the foreseeable future, many artists have resorted to releasing live albums, including the War on Drugs, Belle and Sebastian, Deafheaven and many more. That list now includes Arctic Monkeys, who just announced Live at the Royal Albert Hall. It will be out on December 4, with all proceeds going to the charity War Child UK.
The live album captures a show from 2018, when the band were touring in support of their then-new LP Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino. The band said in a statement:
On June 7, 2018 we played a very special show at London's Royal Albert Hall. All the proceeds from that memorable night were donated to War Child UK in support of the vital work they do protecting, educating and rehabilitating children who have experienced the trauma of conflict and the horror of war. The situation that was bad in 2018 is now desperate and those children and their families need our help more than ever. To enable War Child UK to reduce their funding deficit and continue their valuable work, we are happy to be able to release a live album, recorded that evening at The Royal Albert Hall. All proceeds will go direct to the charity. We thank all our fans in advance for their support of this release and in turn for their support of War Child UK.
Live at the Royal Albert Hall will be released on double vinyl (in black and limited clear versions), double CD and digitally. Watch the album trailer below, and scroll past that for the 20-song tracklist.
