They won't add it to their shows...
Arctic Monkeys had a fiery performance at the BRIT Awards, with a giant "AM" going up in flames behind them as they performed their hit "R U Mine?," but don't expect that to become a regular thing. Alex Turner told NME that the pyro was added at the show's insistence and that they probably won't use it on tour.
Turner said, "Should people expect pyro at our shows now? I don't think so. I'm not going to rule it out, but that was hilarious...[The organisers] said, do you want to perform at The Brits? And the condition was we set an AM on fire. So yeah, don't expect us to add it to our own shows. I mean, we're used to playing with fire now, you've got to understand."
The band won two awards, taking home British Group and British Album.
