The Killers concert postponed

IMPLODING THE MIRAGE TOUR

RESCHEDULED DATES CONFIRMED FOR MAY / JUNE 2021

The Killers have today confirmed replacement dates for their inevitably postponed UK and Ireland stadium tour, which had been due to start in late May, with rescheduled dates for all original shows now taking place in May/June next year. The tour, the band’s biggest ever, sold out in hours when initial dates went on sale late last year along with the announcement of their upcoming sixth album, Imploding The Mirage, but fans are assured that all tickets held for the original dates will be honoured and are transferable to the corresponding 2021 show.

The Killers say: “UK and Ireland friends...We must postpone our UK and Ireland dates due to COVID. The single most important thing is that you all take care of yourselves and be safe and healthy. These are going to be the same great shows, but we have to move them to next year. All tickets will be honoured, so we really hope you will join us. If you can’t, please contact your ticket agent.”

Daniel Gidney, Chief Executive at Lancashire Cricket, said: “Whilst it’s disappointing that we will be unable to host The Killers on 30 May 2020 due to the current climate, the safety and wellbeing of visitors and staff at the stadium are paramount and we completely support the band’s decision to postpone the concert.

“However, we are delighted to announce the concert has been rescheduled for Saturday 12 June 2021, and we’re excited to welcome such an iconic rock band to Emirates Old Trafford for a fantastic night of live entertainment.

“Tickets purchased for the original date of the concert, whether that’s hospitality, a hotel booking or general admission, are still valid for the new date.

“We are looking forward to hosting a sell-out crowd and showcasing our world-class stadium to a global audience once more.”

The Killers will be joined by Special Guests Blossoms at Emirates Old Trafford and remaining tickets for selected dates are available from gigsandtours.com and ticketmaster.co.uk.

The Killers will also be doing a livestream on Instagram tonight at 8pm BST, taking questions from fans.

Imploding The Mirage will be receiving a new release date in the coming weeks due to delays in finalising the album. Watch this space for more.

Imploding The Mirage is The Killers’ sixth studio album and the follow up to 2017’s chart topping Wonderful Wonderful. Produced by the band in conjunction with Shawn Everett and Jonathan Rado of Foxygen, the album was recorded in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Park City, Utah. It is the first Killers album to be written and recorded since the band left their hometown of Las Vegas and it also features a brilliant array of collaborators, another first for the group, who have typically kept guest spots on their albums to a minimum. The list of featured artists includes Lindsey Buckingham, kd lang, Weyes Blood, Adam Granduciel, Blake Mills, and Lucius

Since the release of their 2004 debut, Hot Fuss, The Killers have sold 28 million albums, headlined stadiums and festivals around the world and won dozens of accolades globally. The band continues their reign as America’s heartland heroes as they head into Imploding The Mirage.  Following their 2017 Billboard #1 album, Wonderful Wonderful - a love letter of sorts, as Brandon Flowers crafted songs of encouragement to his wife during crippling bouts of depression - Imploding The Mirage is the light after the dark; the overcoming of sadness and moving into celebration. It’s a record about eternal love, perseverance through hard times, and the strength gained from friendships and familial bonds whilst weathering a storm.
