An application for up to four live music events at Hillsborough Park has been withdrawn, the Council have told VIBE Sheffield.

Rumours were abound that the Arctic Monkeys were set to play up to four nights at Hillsborough Park in September, after a company which has put on tours from them in the past made a license application for the park.

VIBE emailed the Licensing Department at Sheffield City Council for more details of the application but were told that it had been withdrawn and as such no details were available.

It is unknown why the planned shows have been cancelled, or whether Arctic Monkeys were ever on the cards, but the signs around Hillsborough Park being removed in the coming days will dampen the hopes of the Monkeys’ playing some homecoming gigs.
