The Killers have added more dates to their UK tour, after tickets that went on sale on Friday morning were met with phenomenal public demand.

Brandon Flowers and co. have added an additional show at Birmingham’s Genting Arena on November 7, and Manchester Arena on November 14.

This takes the tour to 14 dates, which are as follows:

NOVEMBER

06 – Birmingham Genting Arena
07 – Birmingham Genting Arena
10 – Newcastle Metro Radio Arena
13 – Manchester Arena
14 – Manchester Arena
16 – Dublin 3Arena
17 – Belfast SSE Arena Belfast
19 – Leeds first direct Arena
20 – Glasgow SSE Hydro
21 – Aberdeen AECC GE Oil & Gas Arena
23 – Nottingham Motorpoint Arena
25 – Sheffield Arena
27 – London O2 Arena

In a recent interview with NME, frontman Brandon Flowers said that the new material they’ll be playing from upcoming album Wonderful Wonderful is ‘different’ from their lacklustre previous effort, Battle Born. “There’s a direction, and I think we got there,” he said. “I hope that people recognise that and feel that. We still have two and a half months until it’s out.”

He continued: “I think we were a little bit aimless on Battle Born. We were searching. You’re not always gonna find it, I mean we’re always trying, but you’re not always gonna touch what you’re reaching for and we didn’t quite get there – I don’t feel like. I don’t mean to take anything say from it, you know there are songs on it that I love, but just as a whole I wasn’t very happy with it.”

Tickets are on sale now for The Killers’ UK tour, while their new album Wonderful Wonderful is due for release on September 22.
