The Killers are due to hit up our shores in less than a fortnight for a whistle-stop trip that will see them play the AFL Grand Final, but the group have already made plans to return, having locked in dates for a full-scale Aussie tour in 2018.
Announced today, The Killers’ 2018 tour will see the Las Vegas rockers hit up Brisbane, Sydney, Perth, and Melbourne when they land on Aussie shores in April, their first large-scale run of shows since their 2013 Big Day Out performances.
Touring in support of their fifth studio album, Wonderful Wonderful, which is set to be released next week, The Killers are undoubtedly set to serve up a set full of classic hits and what are sure to be new favourites to an adoring Aussie crowd.
As we reported a while ago, only half of the band are still part of the regular touring lineup, with guitarist Dave Keuning and bassist Mark Stoermer choosing to sit out live shows. So there’s no saying how much of the full band we’ll be seeing on our shores when their tour rolls around, but the optimistic side of us is hoping for the complete lineup.
Of course, if you can’t wait until April for the band’s tour, you can always head along to the AFL Grand Final on Saturday, September 30th for their half-time performance, or catch them that evening at their free performance as part of the free Virgin Australia Premiership Party.
Tickets for these gigs are set to go on sale Tuesday, October 3rd, so be sure to get in quick for one of the finest rock shows you’re sure to see on our shores.
In the meantime, check out tour dates, along with The Killers’ newest single, ‘Some Kind Of Love’, below.
