Harry Potter star Matthew Lewis has jokingly lamented missing out on seeing Arctic Monkeys perform in Italy over the weekend – as he was in the country to get married instead.

The Sheffield four-piece are currently on a European tour in support of their long-awaited sixth album ‘Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino’, with the band rocking up at Rome’s Cavea dell’Auditorium Parco della Musica for a pair of gigs over the weekend (May 26-27).

However the timing of the Monkeys’ gigs in Italy conflicted with Lewis’ – who played Neville Longbottom in the film adaptation of JK Rowling’s series of wizarding novels – other plans, as he was getting married in the country over the weekend.

Lewis later joked on Twitter about his ‘frustration’ at having to miss the Monkeys in action – especially as he said he’d missed them playing in LA recently.

Not only did I miss @ArcticMonkeys in LA but they were performing in Italy at the same time we were there and my wife made me get married instead. Fuming.

While some fans have been put off by the Monkeys’ new musical direction on ‘Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino’, the band have found one supporter of their newly-adopted sound in the form of Elbow’s Guy Garvey.

Speaking to NME on the red carpet at the 2018 Ivor Novellos on May 31, Garvey was full of praise for the current Arctic Monkeys sound – remarking that ‘Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino’ contains some of frontman Alex Turner’s “finest work” to date.
