Ticket prices for the Sheffield shows range from £43.45 to £76.45 and some fans have taken to Twitter to voice their concern that they are overpriced.

One fan said: "Apparently the quality of an Arctic Monkeys show has improved so much it’d cost twice that of the last tour. Daylight robbery."

Another added: ""This isn't some glorious DIY indie rock homecoming, it's just a popular band making as much money as possible."

The band will release their sixth studio album, Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, on May 11.
