Ahead of their forthcoming September UK & Ireland tour, Arctic Monkeys have revealed details of a surprise London show next month.

Taking place at the capital’s iconic Royal Albert Hall, the one-off performance will take place on Thursday 7th June in aid of War Child. Passes will be via ballot only (available to enter here); those successful will then be notified to purchase tickets:

The Arctic Monkeys ballot opens on Wednesday 16 May at 10am and closes on Sunday 20 May at 8pm. During this time, you may submit one ballot entry per person for a fee of £2 – all fees will be donated to War Child UK. Successful entrants will be notified via email on Monday 21 May at 9am and will then have 24 hours to purchase a maximum of two tickets. To purchase tickets in the ballot, successful entrants must use their email as well as the unique reference number provided when purchasing a ballot entry.

The band’s War Child show will be their only UK appearance, alongside TRNSMT Festival, prior to their wider tour later this year. The group recently released their anticipated sixth studio album ‘Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino’.
