The Killers have decided that they weren’t slaying quite enough people on their forthcoming UK tour, so have added an extra night at the Liverpool Echo Arena on November 9.
The tour, to celebrate the release of their first US and fifth UK Number One album ‘Wonderful Wonderful’, starts with two nights at the Birmingham Genting on November 6 and 7, then hits Liverpool before continuing around the UK and Ireland and culminating at the O2 in London at the end of the month.
It will see singer Brandon Flowers and drummer Ronnie Vannucci strike out without both bassist Mark Stoermer and guitarist Dave Kuening, both of whom have decided to sit out selected tours and live shows in future.
The tour will see Howling Bells frontwoman Juanita Stein take the support slot, performing tracks from her debut solo album ‘America’.
The Killers recently paid tribute to Tom Petty during their headline set at Austin City Limits festival, playing ‘American Girl’ and ‘The Waiting’ and Flowers telling the crowd, “it was just like somebody stabbed you in the heart when you heard that he died.”
