For Falkirk transfers from Edinburgh freephone 0800-6190575 . The band are embarking on the tour in support of new album ‘Imploding The Mirage‘, their sixth studio album and their first since 2017.

Starting on 28 May 2020 in Falkirk, the band will play nine dates, calling into Manchester, Norwich, Southampton, London, Bristol, Coventry, Middlesborough, and Dublin.

They’ll be joined by Blossoms, Sam Fender and Manic Street Preachers, who’ll be opening for the Las Vegas band on select nights.

The Killers are an American indie rock band from Las Vegas consisting of frontman Brandon Flowers, guitarist Dave Keuning, bassist Mark Stoermer and drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. The band have sold over 22 million records worldwide and have had four UK number one albums.

The Killers will be performing  in Falkirk on Thursday 28th May 2020 at the Falkirk Stadium.

The Killers are the latest big name act to hit Falkirk Stadium in the last few years. Rod Stewart , Elton John and Little Mix are just some of the top music acts to appear in Falkirk.

“I wouldn’t call this a concept album,” drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. told NME, “but we’re starting to see the threads of a concept, and we’re having fun with it.

“I don’t wanna say for sure what the concept is, but I’d say this is more fun, a little bit more up and I love that.”

“Brandon and I… have been having fun with the fact that we don’t have our guitar player, we don’t have our bass player with us, so it sounds different.”

“We’ve been in Utah doing it,” said front man Brandon Flowers. “That’s where I fell in love with music for the first time; so it’s interesting to be there again and hear some of that music with the geography matching the sensation.”

“Some of that stuff is starting to resurface and a lot of that had to do with synthesiser music. It’s always been part of our DNA but it’s definitely creeping up.”

The band – who formed in 2001 and have released five consecutive chart-topping albums – played a triumphant headline set at Glastonbury earlier in 2019, which delivered one of the biggest singalongs of the weekend in indie banger, ‘Mr. Brightside.’

“The best thing about The Killers is that everyone knows all the words,” said iNews, “and even when you don’t really know them, you still feel like you do. And so did every one of the tens of thousands of people who packed into the huge space in front of the Pyramid Stage.”

“The force of tens of thousands of voices reverberated across the reaches of the campsite in one of the most high-octane and spine-tingling moments of the festival.”

This made Little Mix the first girl group since the Pussycat Dolls to reach the US top five with their debut album, as well as earning the highest debut US chart position for a British girl group’s first release, breaking the record previously held by the Spice Girls.[2] The group’s second album Salute (2013) became their second album to debut inside the top 10 in both the UK and US.[3] Their third album Get Weird was released in 2015.[4] Their fourth album Glory Days (2016) became their first number one album in the UK, and also achieved the longest-reigning girl group number one album since the Spice Girls’ debut album 20 years earlier, and the highest first week UK album sales for a girl band since 1997.[5] In the UK, the group has earned four number-one singles, including “Wings”, “Black Magic” and “Shout Out to My Ex”.

The group won Best British Single for “Shout Out to My Ex” at the 2017 Brit Awards; they have also received several other awards during their career, including two MTV Europe Music Awards, two Teen Choice Awardsand two Glamour Awards. As of October 2016, the group has achieved four platinum certified albums and eleven certified singles in the UK.[6] Little Mix appeared on Debrett’s 2017 list of the most influential people in the UK.[7]
