Surprise Monkeys!

The Arctic Monkeys left those early starters on the Main Stage utterly gobsmacked as they kicked off Radio 1's Big Weekend 2011 with a storming set.

    In response to all these 'teen girl' comments, i applied for saturday because foo fighters were playing. Arctic Monkeys were an added bonus. I went to see Nero and chase&status etc. Me and my friend walked straight past Nicole Sherzwinger (or however you spell it) and went to Vernon Kay. Guess what, im a teen girl, so don't stereotype us all please. Sorry, but it had to be said :)

    The Veeman, You've made my night thats sooooooo........ funny and true apart for Plan b being "poppy" Ben did well with his language p&qs which i was looking forward to had to laugh at Chris Moyles saying that he'd been asked not to swear, which as we know and i personally love Ben Drew has naturally a potty mouth which is needed for his "art" made me giggle more that the girls were the ones that didn't hold back and went for it. Personally i think the "folded arm lot ie teenage girls were there for Nicole and Black eyed peas so fair play to them for holding there ground while the rest of us suffered at home making more noise than them and wishing we were them.!!!

Incorporating elements of rock'n'roll's past it's still a very modern affair.
