Although originally scheduled to finish in Tokyo, Japan, on 23 November, further dates were subsequently added in Spain, Sweden and Denmark for December The furore surrounding the band saw every show selling out and some venues having to be upgraded to handle the demand.
Dates at popular locales were also added later on. The band's home gig in Sheffield had a second night added due to floor space being required for film crews. Advance tickets to all 12 shows were made available on the Monkeys' web-site at 6pm that night, and sold out within 1 hour. Tickets were put on general release at 6pm on 2 February, available online, by phone or box office.
All 12 gigs were sold out within 10 minutes, with queuing at some venues beginning in the early hours of the morning. The tour culminated in Lisbon , which would be subsequently turn out to be Andy Nicholson's last show before leaving the band.
June North American tour June saw the band playing significantly bigger venues than their initial visit in March Andy Nicholson, whose departure from the band was announced upon the band's return to the UK, was replaced by Nick O'Malley during the tour.
Supported by We Are Scientists , the band have received critical acclaim from the American media who have acknowledged that "the hype surrounding the band is there for a reason". July—August Australasia tour After announcing their first tour of Australasia in March , the band performed in Auckland on 28 July. Following near-continuous touring since Autumn , the band's schedule came to an end following their performances at the Reading and Leeds Festivals on the last weekend of August. The band's spectacular rise up the billing from the small Carling Tent up to penultimate on the Main stage in the space of a year was noted by many reviews, and the band delivered "a set that was typically low on spectacle but high on musical fire, they confidently made the festival their own".
The following evening at T in the Park, Kinross in Scotland they played a minute set on the main stage before The Strokes took to the stage. Despite the acclaim the gigs were not without their faults. On the Saturday, sound problems occurred during 'Balaclava' forcing the band to stop playing halfway through. Whilst on the Sunday the band had to stop performing twice during 'Still Take You Home' and 'Dancing Shoes' due to crushing at the front of the barriers.
Despite these minor fluctuations, it is clear that the LCCG concerts cemented Arctic Monkeys' status as the defining band of their generation, as Oasis and the Stone Roses had done before them. The band also played in three cities of Brazil: The tour was supported by The Rascals and The Horrors , the latter were the subject of much controversy amongst Arctic Monkeys fans and the division of opinion resulted in an assortment of missiles such as bottles and plastic cutlery being thrown at the Horrors; particularly at the two G Mex dates in Manchester.
The G Mex dates were generally perceived as to be the worst nights of the tour due to the level of hostility shown towards The Horrors and the audience being subject to a large amount of thuggish behaviour from drunken revellers.
Arctic Monkeys played relatively well however on both G-Mex nights, Turner, at one point on the first night insulted the crowd over their treatment of The Horrors — calling them "wankers" on the first night and "dickheads" on the second. To create a DVD, the band played a secret gig the week after at the Apollo. The setlists usually included four titles from their upcoming third album and a cover of Nick Cave 's " Red Right Hand ", plus many titles from their first two albums. Osheaga Festival It was announced that the band were billed to perform at the Osheaga Festival in Montreal , performing alongside headliners Beastie Boys and Coldplay.
This gig was criticised by many primarily due to the unusually rowdy audience, and Arctic Monkeys had to temporarily stop playing twice during the concert due to the crowd throwing things and generally becoming too violent. Suck It and See Main article: On Friday 10 June, the opening slot was occupied by local band Dead Sons , with London quartet The Vaccines taking the penultimate support slot, and Liverpudlian solo artist and friend of Alex Turner Miles Kane being the main support act.
On 11 June local band Mabel Love opened the show, with female singer-songwriter Anna Calvi performing in the second support slot and Miles Kane being the final support act again.
It was also rumoured that Reverend and the Makers ' frontman Jon McClure also made an appearance at the show on Saturday. The concert merchandise also attracted interest from local media, specifically a T-shirt that parodied the Sheffield City Council logo.
The band entered the stage on both nights to Hot Chocolate 's " You Sexy Thing ", likely in reference to Sheffield film The Full Monty , and also performed less well-known tracks from their earlier back catalogue such as "The View From The Afternoon", " A Certain Romance " and an acoustic performance of " Mardy Bum ", the latter which had not previously been performed live since

Opening with 4 stars out of 5, Arabella and Brianstorm, frontman Alex Turner was in fine form. Clad in a red sateen bomber jacket, white vest, skinny grey trousers and a pair of Cuban heels, the charismatic Turner was front, centre and thoroughly in the spotlight throughout.
