Arctic Monkeys performed at The Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on September 23, 2011.

 

Arctic Monkeys’ incredible success is the stuff that dreams are made of. British alternative rock is in the rudest health it has been for years, and a lot of that has been credited to the Arctic Monkeys. Their story is well-known now – after Alex Turner picked up a guitar and formed the band in 2002 with school friends Jamie Cook on guitar, Matt Helders on drums and Andy Nicholson on bass. The buzz grew organically, and by the time the band signed with Domino Records in June 2005 their signature tunes "I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor", "When The Sun Goes Down", "Mardy Bum" and "A Certain Romance" were firm folk favorites. Audiences were stunned by the strength of their songs, tickled by Turner’s skewed social realist lyrics, and seduced by the intensity of their live performances.
