PRESS RELEASE:

THE KILLERS
ANNOUNCE BIGGEST TOUR OF AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND TO DATE!

Frontier Touring Radio Hauraki and Triple M are thrilled to announce the return of The Killers to Australia and New Zealand in April and May 2018. The widely acclaimed rock band will play seven arena shows in their biggest Australasian tour to date, touring in celebration of their fifth studio album Wonderful Wonderful (out 22 September through Universal Music New Zealand).

Kicking off at Auckland’s Spark Arena on Friday 20 April, the band will visit Wellington and Christchurch before heading to Australia to perform in Brisbane, Sydney and Perth, wrapping up the tour at Hisense Arena in Melbourne on Friday 4 May.

Bursting onto the scene in 2004, The Killers topped Australian charts and went Double Platinum with their debut album Hot Fuss. In New Zealand the album achieved platinum sales and peaked at #5 on the Top 40 chart. Featuring hit singles ‘Mr. Brightside’ and ‘Somebody Told Me’, the album received instant popularity and widespread international success.

Their early success continued with two further platinum albums Sam’s Town (2006) and Day & Age (2008), smash singles like ‘When You Were Young’, ‘Human’ and ‘Read My Mind’, and a touring schedule featuring headline arena shows and festival slots around the world including Glastonbury, Coachella and Lollapalooza.

The band’s forthcoming new album, Wonderful Wonderful is the band’s first new material since Battle Born in 2012. Produced by Jacknife Lee, the album was recorded between Jacknife’s Los Angeles studio and the band’s own Battle Born recording studio in Vegas.

Teased by a series of incredible new songs - ‘The Man’, ‘Run For Cover’, 'Some Kind Of Love' and title track ‘Wonderful Wonderful’ - the album is the band’s most sonically forward-thinking record yet, bursting with all of the blazing choruses and arena-pleasing anthems that make them one of the world’s biggest and beloved rock bands.

The Killers are finally returning to New Zealand and Australia! As one of the world’s most popular rock bands, these shows are not to be missed. Fans are encouraged to act now to avoid missing out!
