The Killers Announce Intimate Sheffield Show As Warm-Up For UK Tour
The show at the Yorkshir city’s 02 Academy on May 17 presages their full-scale UK and Ireland stadium tour.
The Killers have announced details of an intimate gig in Sheffield next month ahead of their 2022 UK stadium tour.
Brandon Flowers’ team are set to head across the country this summer in support of their albums Pressure Machine and Imploding The Mirage. The main tour begins in Doncaster on May 24, with dates following in Bristol, Southampton, London and beyond.
Ahead of the tour, the band have now announced an intimate warm-up show at the O2 Academy in Sheffield, set for May 17. Tickets for the new show go on sale this Thursday (April 14) at 10am BST.
The band had initially been set out to hit the road in support of Imploding The Mirage in summer 2020, before those dates were delayed to last year and set to kick off in May 2021. However, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and with mass outdoor gatherings currently not set to return in the UK until June 21, the gigs were then rescheduled until summer of 2022.
Their most recent album, Pressure Machine came out in late 2021, and the band shared new songs on a deluxe edition of the album last month.
Last year, The Killers revealed to NME that they’re already at work on a “heavier” new record – and that this one is likely to feature all four members.
