    Arctic Monkeys kicked off a new run of tour dates on Monday with a gig at Ashton Gate Stadium in Bristol, UK. At the very onset of the show, Alex Turner and co. surprised fans with a rare live performance of  “Mardy Bum” from their beloved 2006 debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not.

    According to, it marked Arctic Monkeys’ first full-band performance of “Mardy Bum” since 2013, and the first time they played the “album version” since 2007.

    That wasn’t the evening’s only surprise performance however. Arctic Monkeys also dusted off “My Propeller,” from 2009’s Humbug, for the first time since 2014.
