Arctic Monkeys Singer Bans His Mum From Festivals
Alex Turner, frontman of the Arctic Monkeys has said in an interview that he’s banned his mum from attending festivals that the band perform at claiming he “can’t be naughty if she’s there”.
While his mum was at Glastonbury this Summer where she celebrated her birthday and Turner had the crowd sing Happy Birthday to her he’s said that she can only attend festivals where the Arctic Monkeys aren’t playing.
Speaking to The Sun about his Mum at Glastonbury Turner said: ”She was there with all her gang. I didn’t even get the tickets for them, she went and organised it for herself, for her birthday.”
“There’s something about a big festival and knowing your mum is around somewhere. I can’t be naughty if she’s there.”
He went on to say: “I asked if, in future, we could check which festival she wants to go to and which ones I’m playing at. I absolutely love her though, don’t get me wrong.”
