Television viewers were unable to see the Arctic Monkeys’ performance at Reading Festival on Saturday night after the band requested that their set not be shown live.

The Sheffield group headlined the event’s main stage with a setlist that included RU Mine?, I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor and new song I Ain’t Quite Where I Think I Am.

Fans will be able to watch on BBC One from 11.35pm on Sunday, according to the BBC.

A tweet from BBC Radio 1 on Saturday said:

“But you can watch them on BBC One tomorrow from 23:35.”

The tweet sparked a shocking response from some fans who wanted to see the performance live.

Arctic Monkeys will conclude their sister festival in Leeds on Sunday night.

The band, consisting of frontman Alex Turner, guitarist Jamie Cooke, bassist Nick O’Malley and drummer Matt Helders, released their seventh studio album, The Car, earlier this week.

This record was partly recorded at a priory in rural Suffolk, four years after their last record, 2018’s Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino.

All six Arctic Monkeys studio albums to date have reached number one in the UK.

The group’s debut, Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not, was released in January 2006 to critical acclaim and commercial success.

Rappers Dave and The 1975 are headlining this year’s Reading and Leeds festivals.

The 1975 were fronted by singer Matty Healy, stepping in to replace Rage Against The Machine. This is after the US punk band pulled out over a medical issue involving frontman Zack de la Rocha.
