The Arctic Monkeys have said they are “extremely sorry” to cancel an upcoming show in Dublin.

It comes mere days before they are set to perform in Glasgow, as frontman Alex Turner is suffering from acute laryngitis.

The rock band has just performed three shows at the Emirates stadium in London from Friday to Sunday and were due to perform in Malahide Castle in Dublin on Wednesday.

Turner and team were expected to return to Glasgow for the first time since playing TRNSMT 2018, on June 25, with an open-air show.

However, the cancellation of their Dublin gig just three days before has cast a shadow over the Bellahouston Park concert.

The band began the biggest tour of their career to date in May in support of their seventh studio album The Car, set to be released on October 21.

The group is also headlining the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury this Friday at the festival in Worthy Farm returns for a 51th year.

A statement posted to the band’s official Twitter account, read: “We are extremely sorry to announce that we are cancelling Arctic Monkeys’ show at Marlay Park in Dublin tomorrow.

“Alex is suffering from acute laryngitis and, following medical advice, has been ordered to rest.

“Alex and the band apologise for the huge disappointment this will inevitable cause to all their Irish fans.”

They added that full refunds will be credited back to ticket purchasers’ accounts within the next six working days.
