Arctic Monkeys kicked off their headlining U.K. tour on Thursday night (Sept. 6) in Manchester, and the band dug up an old gem in celebration. "Dancing Shoes" made an appearance in the set for the first time since 2014.

The song was featured on their debut album, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I Am Not, and a video of the performance captured by a fan shows frontman Alex Turner growling the song's iconic line: "You sexy little swine."

Watch below. The band makes their way to the United States in October, when they will perform a string of cross-country dates.
