The Killers Australian Tour 2013 – Big Day Out Sideshows

Written by Kiel Egging on September 18, 2012

If you are a fan of The Killers, get ready to wet your pants in excitement over this announcement.

Fresh from releasing their new album Battle Born on the weekend – the Las Vegas kings have announced two awesome sideshows to compliment their appearances at the Big Day Out in January.

And, they’re not at the enormo-domes or arenas that you’d normally expect them to be at. The band are bringing their built-for-stadium experience to two very intimate venues in Melbourne and Sydney, where fans will be able to see them belt out their catalogue of hits up close and personal.

The band were last on our shores a few years back promoting their third album Day&Age as headliners of two now-defunct festivals – the V-Festival (2009) and Good Vibrations (2010).

Prior to that, they did a few stadium shows at the end of 2007 to mark the end of touring their second album Sam’s Town. They did announce an intimate show at Enmore Theatre as part of their Good Vibes visit, but that was cancelled due to family health issues. So, these sideshows are the first solo dates the band have done locally in five years.

And with this special announcement, the wait is definitely going to be worth it for the fans who are lucky enough to get their hands on tickets to these shows. Tickets go on sale this Friday, September 21 – and I’m predicting that they will disappear very quickly.

The Killers – Big Day Out 2013 Sideshows:

Wednesday, January 16 – The Metro, Sydney
Tuesday, January 22 – The Palace, Melbourne

Tickets for both shows available at www.bigdayout.com.
