The Killers announce 2018 UK stadium shows

Band play Swansea and Bolton next summer

The Killers have announced two UK stadium shows for 2018.

The Brandon Flowers-led band, who released their fifth studio album ‘Wonderful Wonderful’ in September, will play Swansea and Bolton next summer. They play Swansea’s Liberty Stadium on June 23 and Bolton’s Macron Stadium on July 13.

Tickets for both shows will go on sale this Friday (December 8) from 9.30am, available from www.ticketmaster.co.uk andwww.gigsandtours.com. Pre-sale tickets will be available to The Victims fan club members from Thursday (December 7) via Ticketmaster.

These dates will be The Killers’ first stadium shows since playing London’s Wembley Stadium in June 2013.

The news comes after it was announced that The Killers will headline the 50th anniversary of Isle Of Wight festival in 2018.

The Killers play the following UK stadium gigs next year:

Swansea, Liberty Stadium (June 23)
Bolton, Macron Stadium (July 13)

Meanwhile, The Killers were joined on stage by New Order‘s Bernard Sumner during their gig at The O2 in London last week (November 28).

The band played their second consecutive night at the capital’s huge arena venue, playing a cover of Joy Division‘s ‘Shadowplay’ before being later joined by Sumner during their encore for a rendition of the 1986 New Order track ‘Bizarre Love Triangle’.

Back in July, Flowers recalled meeting Sumner for the first time – revealing that it happened in a toilet at the NME Awards.

“It was our first time going to the NME Awards, and we were starstruck,” Flowers said in an interview with Radio X. “It was an incredible experience for us. We were just happy to be there. I’m in the bathroom. I’m at the urinal. And Bernard Sumner, who’s one of my heroes, steps up next to me.”
