Angry residents have blasted the Arctic Monkeys after their gig speakers were so loud homes were left VIBRATING – more than FOUR MILES away.

Homes were left shaking following the two night concert, with the council blaming the WIND for the racket.

Music levels showed the performance at Finsbury Park, north London, was the loudest ever – despite the venue hosting rock legends such as Jimi Hendrix, The Sex Pistols, Limp Bizkit and Rage Against the Machine in the past.

Furious residents kept awake by last Friday and Saturday’s gigs took to Twitter to complain about the Arctic Monkeys show, which 110,000 fans attended.

Nicole Slavin said: “Yeah really bored of the noise from Finsbury Park now. 1.8 miles away and I can feel my house vibrate from the concert. Make it stop.”

Simon Littlefield wrote: “I am three and a half miles from Finsbury Park, at home, indoors, watching telly and I can still hear the Arctic Monkeys.”

But some fans were happy they were being treated to a free concert – including local MP David Lammy who wrote: “The joys of London listening to the Arctic Monkeys in Finsbury Park from my bedroom window. #crawlingbacktoyou”.

The local council even set up a dedicated hotline to deal with noise complaints for the event.

Cllr Paul Convery, of Islington Council, said: “Our noise monitors showed that it was louder than previous years, but the wind direction could have been quite a significant factor in much of this.

“We’re going to talk to Haringey in the next couple of days to find out exactly what power the PA had.”

Despite noise complaints, crime was significantly lower than when fellow Northerners The Stone Roses played at the park last June.
