Alex Turner has performed “Vertigo” on stage with LA band Mini Mansions. Arctic Monkeys frontman joined Mini Mansions at the Comerica Theatre in Phoenix on October 25 to perform the song he has recorded with the band for their forthcoming new album, “The Great Pretenders”. The album is due for release in 2015 on T Bone Burnett’s Electromagnectic Recordings label and will also feature a guest appearance from Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys.
Mini Mansions was founded by Zach Dawes, Tyler Parkford, and Queens of the Stone Age bassist Michael Shuman. Later this year, Mini Mansions will support Arctic Monkeys on tour before heading to Europe to support Royal Blood next February and March.
The live performance was recorded by a fan and already is circulating the internet at high frequency.
