Arctic Monkeys thrill at British festival
The Arctic Monkeys put on a good show at the Reading Festival in Britain thanks to a featured mix of the rock band's new and old material, an attendee says.
Scottish plumber Bobby Young, who was in attendance for Saturday's show in the English city of Reading, said the rockers split their performance time between their older hits and songs from the band's new album
Humbug, the BBC reported Sunday.
Glastonbury taught us that; I think we grew up in some way, Turner told the BBC.
Other performers Saturday at the 2009 Reading Festival included Prodigy, Ian Brown and Maximo Park.
Friday's performance line-up included Kings of Leon, Fall Out Boy and Placebo. Scheduled for Sunday, the final day of the Reading Festival, were Radiohead, Vampire Weekend and Bloc Party.
