“[Battle Born is] A thrilling victory of an album - what great pop music’s all about (****)” Q
The Killers have now confirmed that they will be joined by Manchester legends James and New Jersey boys The Gaslight Anthem for the special show on June 22nd. James are currently mid their own sold out UK tour, "The Gathering Sound" to mark their incredible 30 year career. Frontman Tim Booth, says of the Wembley show,
“We are honoured and excited to be opening for a band we personally love and who seem to have held the bauble "best live band in the world" for so long, I fear they have melted it down.”
The Killers have their biggest ever standalone show, at Wembley Stadium on Saturday June 22nd 2013.
The Las Vegas band, who released their stunning new album (and fourth consecutive #1) Battle Born, last month, to much acclaim, conclude their current sold-out UK arena tour with two nights at London’s 02 Arena this weekend (16/17 Nov).
After this, the Wembley Stadium show will be the next chance for UK fans to see The Killers in action.
In February 2010, after the better part of a decade spent on the road and with the end of a mammoth 18 month world tour in sight, the band were at a crossroads.
They had sold over 15 million copies of Hot Fuss, Sam's Town and Day & Age, visited every corner of the globe, and become one of the world's biggest rock 'n' roll bands in the process, but they found themselves needing time to, as Brandon puts it, "put everything into perspective.
After Brandon, Mark and Ronnie had all dabbled successfully in solo waters, it was the band's rapturous live return headlining last April's inaugural Lollapalooza festival in Chile that convinced them to, in Ronnie's words, "Get back in the f**king room together and write some songs."
After a few days, the song they all ended up coalescing around was Battle Born's eventual lead single, 'Runaways'.
Recorded almost entirely at the studio that shares its name 'Battle Born', it incorporates elements from each of the records that came before it - Hot Fuss' storytelling eye for detail, the yearning, mythic Americana of Sam's Town, the gratuitous hooks and pop nous of Day & Age - without sounding overtly like any one in particular.
Speaking of Battle Born, Brandon has said, 'Battle Born is The Killers Doing what we do best.'
"We were ready to get back to the sound of four guys in a room again," admits Ronnie. "Day & Age was a great record, but we were having so much fun experimenting and creating the songs, we let that get in the way of finding a common thread. This time, we owed it to ourselves to do something that felt more like a personal blueprint for the band."
The story of The Killers' first ten years together - during which they went from Vegas bellhops to Glastonbury headliners, earning themselves a reputation as one of the world's finest live bands and amassing a collection of Brit, NME, MTV and (most recently) ASCAP Awards that their collective mantlepiece now heaves under - is a tale of runaway success.
With 'Battle Born' complete, all four members are eager to get it out on the road and re-introduce the world to The Killers, hence the announcement of UK arena dates.
"I feel like there are a lot of live moments on this album, more than we've ever had before," says Brandon. "I feel like people are going to be able to relate to and understand these songs.
The Killers have rescheduled their two postponed Manchester Arena shows of November 13th and 14th for February 17th and 18th, 2013, respectively.
The band were forced to cut short their concert at the arena on Tuesday night (Nov 14th) after vocal problems following a viral infection meant that Brandon Flowers was unable to continue with the set. Apologising to fans via Facebook and Twitter on the night, the band promised to reschedule as soon as possible.
Tickets for the original shows remain valid for the rescheduled dates (with tickets for November 13th valid for February 17th, and November 14th tickets valid for February 18th), with the exception of standing tickets from the Nov 13th show, which will be reissued to customers by their original ticketing agents. The band hopes that all of their fans can join them at the new shows, but refunds are of course available from point of purchase.
The band’s two sold-out shows at London’s O2 Arena this weekend (Nov 16th, 17th) will go ahead as planned.
