Arctic Monkeys and be your own PET at Hammerstein Ballroom

Going into this show I was a bit worried that

A-The crowd would suck
B-Arctic Monkeys just wouldn't be able to play it off in such a big American venue

So, I was wrong twice because the show was absolutely brilliant. The band came out to "If You Found This It's Probably Too Late" and wasted no time mixing it up with new tracks from "Favourite Worst Album" and all the hits. No encore either...the Sheffield boys are getting to be proper rock stas.

Here is the setlist:

'If You Found This It's Probably Too Late'
'Still Take You Home'
'Dancing Shoes'
'From The Ritz To The Rubble'
'Fake Tales Of San Francisco'
'You Probably Couldn't See For The Lights But You Were Staring Straight At Me'
'Teddy Picker'
'D Is for Dangereous'
'This House Is a Circus'
'Old Yellow Bricks'
'If You Were There, Beware'
'The View From the Afternoon'
'Fluorescent Adolescent'
'Do Me A Favour'
'When the Sun Goes Down'
'Leave Before the Lights Come On'
'A Certain Romance'

be your own PET had some trouble with their sound which was a bummer as they are a fantastic band as well. I guess Hammerstein just isn't made for openers...
