The Killers Announce Their First NZ Tour Dates

Tuesday 20 January 2009

After much anticipation and speculation, The Killers will be returning to NZ this year to play their very first arena dates in Auckland and Christchurch in support of their incredible third album, Day & Age, out now on Island Records.  Tickets for these shows will go on-sale to the general public on Friday 30 January.

The Killers first NZ performance was well remembered after they boosted the star lineup at the Big Day Out in 2007. They wowed audiences across Australasia and their imminent return has been hopeful ever since. Now, thankfully, that time has come!

These days The Killers’ live show has taken on new dimensions thanks to the brilliant songs found on Day & Age. The album, which sold over a million copies worldwide in its first week of release, sees The Killers expanding their sound into new territories with tremendous results.  From the swirling synths and guitar trills of first single “Human,” to the epic, sing-along chorus of new single “Spaceman,” to the sparkling harps and strings on “I Can’t Stay” and more, Day & Age is The Killers at their very best.
