The Killers announce massive Australian arena tour for 2018

The Killers will return to Australia and New Zealand for their biggest ever Australasian tour in April and May 2018.

Playing seven arena shows, the American rockers will celebrate the release of their fifth studio album Wonderful Wonderful, due out September 22.

The band will make three stops in New Zealand before heading to Australia to perform in Brisbane, Sydney and Perth, before wrapping up in Melbourne.

Led by frontman Brandon Flowers, the Nevada natives burst onto the scene in 2004, topping Australian charts with their debut album Hot Fuss. Featuring hit singles ‘Mr. Brightside’ and ‘Somebody Told Me’, the album led the foursome to huge international success.

The trend continued with follow-up albums Sam’s Town (2006) and Day & Age (2008), with smash singles like ‘When You Were Young’ and ‘Human’ earning the band arena shows and headline slots and major festivals like Coachella, Glastonbury and Lollapalooza.

The Killers’ latest LP Wonderful Wonderful is their first new material since Battle Born (2012). The album is sonically forward-thinking, with plenty of their trademark anthemic choruses that will please longtime fans.

Aussie audiences will get a taste of the what’s to come with The Killers performing at the AFL Grand Final pre-game show and premiership party on September 30.
