The Killers have postponed the sale of tickets for their upcoming late summer/fall shows in North America, Australia and Mexico due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Sharing a statement on social media, The Killers said the reason for the tickets not going on sale yet is because “the news is changing every hour around coronavirus,” and that they want their fans “to stay focused on prevention and remaining safe and cautious right now.”

The statement continued: “In addition, once we go on sale, we will be providing a portion of our ticketing income to local organisations who help people whose services industry jobs are impacted by the coronavirus in each of our tour cities. We are taking this personally. Both we and our families have had these jobs and our hearts go out to those affected.

The band ended their statement: “If anything changes again, we’ll let you know; in the meantime, we’re more excited than ever to sing these new songs with you, and can’t wait to see you soon. Watch this space for the updated ticket information!”

Over the past week, a whole host of gigs and festivals have been cancelled or postponed due to the continued COVID-19 pandemic.
