THE Killers have announced a very special show at O2 Academy Brixton on Tuesday, September 12, 2017.

The band will return to the London venue for the first time in over a decade, and 10 days before the release of their new album, Wonderful Wonderful.

The show announcement comes after the Las Vegas band’s November UK and Ireland tour sold out immediately upon going on sale last month.

Tickets for The Killers at O2 Academy Brixton go on sale to members of the band’s fanclub, The Victims, and in a limited O2 pre-sale at 9am on Wednesday morning (August 30), and on general sale on Friday (September 1) at 9am.

Ticket orders will be limited to two per person and fans will need to show photo ID matching the name on their ticket in order to enter the show.

Tickets will be available only from Ticketmaster or The Killers website

Following the release of Wonderful Wonderful’s blistering lead single The Man, The Killers played a surprise unannounced set at Glastonbury Festival in June, sold out their British Summer Time show in Hyde Park in record time, and conquered the European festival circuit with a crowd pleasing set of hits, before heading back stateside to headline Lollapalooza in Chicago.

Wonderful Wonderful will be The Killers’ fifth studio album and their first in five years. Produced by Jacknife Lee, it was recorded at the band’s own Battle Born recording studio in Las Vegas, and at Jacknife’s Los Angeles studio. The album will be released on September 22 on Virgin EMI.
