According to reports Rihanna will be performing at Essex with rapper 'Eminem', when the British rockers will be headlining in Staffordshire and when the 'Umbrella' hitmaker will be entertaining Essex, the Monkeys will be doing a gig at the other venue. This made frontman Alex Turner very unhappy.
Arctic Monkeys were one of the first bands to hit the lime-light because of the internet. The band in their early days would distribute their demos to the audience. Fans started sharing these demos on the internet and someone even created a Myspace page for the Arctic Monkeys. As a result of all this the band hit the big times.
