The group is expected to take the stage at Pyramid Stage at 10:15 p.m. after Royal Blood.

However, the Arctic Monkeys have canceled a gig in Dublin tonight where they were due to perform to a crowd of 40,000 on Tuesday 20th June.

The band said in a statement: “We are extremely sorry to announce the cancellation of Arctic Monkeys’ performance at Dublin’s Marlay Park tomorrow.”

“Alex is suffering from acute laryngitis and has been advised by a doctor to rest.

“Alex and the band apologize for the huge disappointment this will inevitably cause for all Irish fans.”

However, a concerned Glastonbury fan tweeted: “How long does it take you to recover from laryngitis? I’m asking for a headliner.”

Another added: “Arctic Monkeys cancel ???? better be alright for Glasto please please please.”

The Sun announced last year that the band had agreed to headline the Pyramid Stage for the third time.

A source explained: “The band are in the process of assembling their team and are working to make their performance one of the most memorable in Glastonbury.”
