Last night, Arctic Monkeys brought grit and grime and polished guitar glory to Chicago. Needless to say, they rocked the house down. I only wish they had played “Suck it and See” and more from the second half of the new album. Alex seemed a little distracted (heartbroken?) but he sang his heart out and was truly incredible. He even climbed up to Matt’s drum podium at one point. Bless this band.

The staff at HoB didn’t throw down any set lists but I recreated it from memory to the best of my ability:
This House Is A Circus
Still Take You Home
Don’t Sit Down ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair
Brick by Brick
The Hellcat Spangled Shalalala
The View From The Afternoon
I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor
All My Own Stunts
If You Were There, Beware
Do Me A Favour
When The Sun Goes Down
Here’s a video of the pre-encore closer. Notice how loudly the crowd cheered. We were very much into it:
