The Killers announce 2018 Australian tour dates

It's a Wonderful Wonderful day to be a fan of The Killers because they've announced a huge tour of Australia and New Zealand early next year. The band will be kicking off the tour in New Zealand in April 2018, before landing in Melbourne's Hisense Arena on Friday May 4. 

The tour is set to promote the band's long-awaited new album Wonderful Wonderful (due out September 22), the first record from the indie rockers since 2012's Battle Born

Of course, Melbourne fans will get a taste of the tour earlier than everyone else when the Las Vegas rockers take to the stage at the MCG to headline the pre-game entertainment as well as a free post-game show on Grand Final Day, Saturday September 30. 

Frontier members pre-sale kicks off on Wednesday September 27, and general public tickets go on sale via Ticketek on Tuesday October 3 at 3pm. All shows on the tour are all ages.

If The Killers soundtracked the majority of your teen years When You Were Young (sorry), make sure you get those tickets and get ready for some intense flashbacks of shouting singing "he doesn't look a thing like JEE-SUS". In the meantime, we'll leave you with a classic The Killers meme only true fans will get.


In case you missed it, here's how you can see The Killers for free this month.
