I love all the images from the MSG show. It’s a big deal, see. 

The boys backstage at MSG. You know my favorite among these? Photo 5. Jamie Cook. Looking as if he’s praying. For what though? That Alex stops being ridiculous? Maybe.

(I know these have been posted, whatevs.)

I have to make an effort not to take a moment to think about what I’m doing up there. That’s when you look down at your guitar and feel like it’s something you’ve never seen before. I try to avoid that moment. Like all these actions I’ll do now, it’s built in. I can’t fucking do the Macarena again tonight but if I don’t do it, I’ll fuck the next line up. There are a lot of words in our songs. I don’t want to make it seem like I have it hard or anything, but you start thinking about it too much and step out of that zone, you don’t know where you are. What is this? What is this place? You spend all day in your head and then for that one hour, you don’t. Especially the old songs, if I tried to sing a verse from one right now, I couldn’t do it. But in that moment, when I’m there and they’re all around me, playing, it’s built into me. I can do it.

This is what a sold out MSG show looks like. Amazing night of rock with Arctic Monkeys and The Black Keys (Taken with Instagram at Madison Square Garden)

Beautiful.

We’re Arctic Monkeys for those of you who missed the announcement earlier. If you were buying a Big Gulp. Is that a thing? Am I pronouncing it right?

Also, here’s a list of things you might’ve missed if you have a life and are not stuck in front of a computer all day:
R U Mine’s bside is Electricity and will be released on 7” purple vinyl on RSD, 21 April 2012 — I do not have an advance copy of that track, fyi anons
The California 2011 shirt is now available at the official store, so get your hands on it ASAP
The L’Olympia gig is up on YouTube again. Yes, the full show. Rip that before it disappears
Let’s beat Coldplay, shall we? Need your votes for MTV’s Musical March Madness
I edited the Detroit post to accommodate the link to a bootleg download of the entire gig c/o AMUS of course and;
I’m still trying to cover the Black Keys/Arctic Monkeys tour. Trying is the operative word.
