There are some performers for whom sharing a field with 40,000 muddy revellers in various stages of weekend "relaxation" would be an excuse to dress down. Not the Arctic Monkeys. Playing two of their biggest ever gigs in London's Finsbury Park on this past Friday and Saturday, Alex Turner and co attired themselves for the occasion in suave eveningwear.
Guitarist Jamie Cook opted for a sharp white suit on both nights of their brief residency (brave), while frontman Turner switched it up, sporting a striking smoking jacket over all-black threads on Friday and a more conventional, tie-less tux on Saturday. It's Al's Friday get-up we're celebrating here: skinny black pants with a killer gold belt buckle, black shirt, slicked back hair, and of course that amazing oversized jacket.
Like the confident, swaggering set it accompanied, it's a look that says "embracing the big time." Nice work.
