Verdict: Five stars.

Arctic Monkeys were greeted by thousands of delighted Bellahouston Park fans as they made their return to Glasgow for the first time in five years.

Fresh from their headlining Glastonbury slot, the Sheffield rockers strutted on stage with their hands in the air to the cheers from the crowd before they kicked off their sold-out set on Sunday night with Brianstorm.

Frontman Alex Turner then screamed, “Greetings Glasgow,” before belting out Snap Out of It.

Delighted by the response from the crowd, he then beamed: "Thank you Glasgow, you’re a sight for sore eyes.”

Last week, it seemed this show might not have been possible after the band cancelled a performance in Dublin’s Marlay Park with Turner admitting he was suffering from a bout of acute laryngitis.

But the 37-year-old was in fine tune as he took fans through the best of the Arctic Monkeys back catalogue with guitarist Jamie Cook, drummer Matt Helders and bassist Nick O’Malley at the helm of that infectious sound.

Turner was both charismatic and entertaining. His voice sounded incredible throughout the set especially on Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High? and Arabella.

Clearly vibing with the crowd, he was delighted by the atmosphere generated at Bellahouston as he said with a smile, “You’re beautiful Glasgow.”

Fluorescent Adolescent then sent the audience wild as they sang in unison with Turner while the unmistakable beat of Do You Wanna Know was another highlight.

Mardy Bum, taken from debut album Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I Am Not, took the crowd back on a nostalgic trip and reminded them just how far this band has come.

Debut single I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor and R U Mine? finished off the set in style.

And although the band faced their online critics in recent days over their Glastonbury set, there was no sign their spirits were dampened as they performed a night to remember in Glasgow.
