The Killers Malahide Castle
The Killers have confirmed details of a massive stadium tour. It will support their sixth studio album, Imploding The Mirage, which is due for release in spring 2020.
The Killers are a Grammy-nominated rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Since breaking through in 2004 with their debut album Hot Fuss, they’ve become one of the biggest bands on the planet.
Spawning the singles Mr Brightside, Somebody Told Me, All These Things That I’ve Done and Smile Like You Mean It, the album debuted at No.1 on the official UK albums chart. In 2013, Rolling Stone magazine listed it as one of their top 100 greatest debut albums of all time.
Since Hot Fuss, The Killers have gone onto release four more studio albums: Sam’s Town in 2006, Day & Age in 2008, Battle Born in 2012 and the band’s most recent effort, 2017’s Wonderful Wonderful. Each album debuted at No.1 on the Official UK albums chart.
2019 saw the Killers release a standalone song, Land of the Free, inspired by current events and recent national tragedies in the US. It was accompanied by a video from Academy Award-winning director Spike Lee.
Some of the band’s other best-known tracks include Human, The Man, Shot at the Night, Read My Mind and their highest charting UK single to date When You Were Young.
Their music is based on British influences and on the music of the 1980s, particularly New Wave, and on epic Americana artists such as Bruce Springsteen.
A huge live draw, The Killers have sold out stadiums and arenas all over the world. They last played at the world-famous Glastonbury Festival, where they were joined by some of their ultimate heroes, Pet Shop Boys and Johnny Marr, in the encore.
