THE Killers have announced two very special warm-up shows at Londonʼs Scala on June 22 and 23, 2011.

Their first UK dates in almost two years, these intimate shows will precede the Las Vegas bandʼs previously-announced headline show in Hyde Park (Hard Rock Calling) on June 24.

Tickets for the Scala shows will be released to members of The Killersʼ fanclub, The
Victims, before going on general sale on Tuesday, June 14 at noon.

The Killers last performed in the UK, in support of their million-selling third album, Day And Age, in 2009.

Following six years of intensive touring, the Las Vegas band then decided to take 2010 off to recharge their batteries and explore other projects: Brandon Flowers released his solo album, Flamingo, which hit No.1 on the UK charts last September; Ronnie Vannucci will shortly release his own record under the name Big Talk; and Mark Stoermer has been sitting in the producerʼs chair for the first time, producing Howling Bellsʼ upcoming album, as well as working on music of his own.

The band recently regrouped to begin writing together for their fourth studio album, and plan to celebrate with these special UK shows before embarking on further writing and recording sessions.

Tickets for The Killers at The Scala, priced at £42.50 go on general sale at midday on Tuesday, June 14.
