Arctic Monkeys live in Barcelona

Usually the month of November is a rather cold, calm and uneventful one. Not in Barcelona though where soon the Arctic Monkeys will perform live at the “Palau Olimpic Vall d’Hebron”. The English Indie Rock Band so far received 5 Brit-Awards, a Mercury Price and 2 Grammy nominations.

In 2005 they were well known even though they did not yet release their first album. People shared their music online and clicked their links on youtube. Finally in 2006 their debut “Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not” was released and till today remains one of the most influential indie rock albums out there.

Currently the group is touring their fifth studio release called “AM” while promoting the upcoming “Do I Wanna Know”.  On the 16.11 they will perform live at the “Palau Olimpic Vall d’Hebron” which is a famous venue where the part of the 1992 Summer Olympics took part.

During the year Madrid hosts exciting activities and events and this December Lady Gaga will be the star of the city. She will be on stage the 12th of December at the “Palacio de los Deportes” as part of her Monsters Ball Tour.
The blonde New Yorker artist has a firm presence not only in the English-speaking world, but also in the Spanish charts. During 2010, her hits Bad Romance and Alejandro have been played in every club and on the radio in Spain. Her last hit, Telephone, is a duet with the American artist Beyoncé. The 12th of November, Lady Gaga won three prizes at this year’s MTV Europe Music Awards: Best Female, Song, and Pop honors.
For those who already know Madrid, Lady Gaga is a great chance to experience something new in the city, and for those who are new in town, this concert is an exuberant and thrilling distraction. If you are coming to Madrid with your friends or with a group of people, staying in one of our apartments is an excellent decision; is a cheapest and more grateful alternative than staying in a hotel. Don’t forget to check out our website www.rent4days.com and book an apartment for your stay in Madrid in December.
