Last night, The Black Keys and Arctic Monkeys played their second show in a month at Madison Square Garden due to overwhelming demand. Hot on the heels of last year’s critically acclaimed El Camino and Suck It And See, respectively, the two bands- who seemed pleased to be back- put on blinding light and sound shows worthy of a victory lap. Arctic Monkeys opened the show with “Brianstorm”, frontman Alex Turner setting off head-banging singalongs in the VIP section when he mugged for the microphone and strutted his stuff on stage. The Black Keys followed dramatic suit, projecting real-time images of their performing selves on giant screens behind them as they blasted through newer tracks like “Dead and Gone” and “Run Right Back”. If you couldn’t snag tickets for either show, check out photos from the concert below.
