The show was the group's first performance since completing their forthcoming second album 'Favourite Worst Nightmare' and saw them preview a host of new songs including 'Fluorescent Adolescent', 'D Is For Dangerous' (which has appeared online, see below) and upcoming single 'Brianstorm'.

Arctic Monkeys played:

'This House Is A Circus'
'I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor'
'Still Take You Home'
'Dancing Shoes'
'D Is For Dangerous'
'When The Sun Goes Down'
'From The Ritz To The Rubble'
'Fluorescent Adolescent'
'Do Me A Favour'
'View From The Afternoon'
'Leave Before The Lights Come On'
'What If You Were Right?'
'A Certain Romance'
