The Killers announce two huge stadium shows

They'll be playing in Swansea and Bolton next year.

The Killers have announced two huge outdoor stadium shows next summer. The Las Vegas based group will be playing at Swansea Liberty Stadium on Saturday 23 June 2018, and Bolton Macron Stadium on Friday 13 July 2018.

The Summer 2018 shows will be their first stadium shows since they headlined Wembley Stadium in London in June 2013. They last played in the UK in November, including two sold out shows at London’s O2.

Their latest dates in Swansea and Bolton come alongside news that they’ll be headlining Isle of Wight Festival with Depeche Mode, Kasabian and Liam Gallagher.

The band, fronted by the enigmatic Brandon Flowers, released their latest album Wonderful Wonderful in September, marking their record breaking fifth consecutive UK No.1 as well as reaching the top spot stateside for the very first time.

The album has already spawned singles such as The Man and Run For Cover.

 

Wonderful Wonderful follows 2012’s Battle Born, as well as Day & Age, Sam’s Town and breakthrough 2003 debut Hot Fuss.

The debut included hit songs Mr Brightside and Somebody Told Me that continue as mainstays on the airways and dancefloors across the globe.

The Killers also recently teamed up with Imagine Dragons, Jay Leno, Carrot Top, Blue Man Group and Cirque Du Soleil in their Las Vegas hometown for Vegas Strong, a benefit concert to raise funs for the victims and survivors of the October’s attack in the city.

The band are gearing up to return to the UK in the summer for the following dates:

23 June 2018 – Liberty Stadium, Swansea
13 July 2018 – Macron Stadium, Bolton

Tickets for both The Killers dates go on sale at 9:30 on Friday 8 December through Ticketmaster.co.uk.
