We need a hero (the hero that Adelaide deserves, and the one it needs right now) to start a petition to get The Killers to Adelaide. We need it, you need it, we all need it.

The Killers are touring Australia… but they’re not coming to Adelaide. Yep, we’re as devo as you are.

We need a hero (the hero that Adelaide deserves, and the one it needs right now) to start a petition to get The Killers to Adelaide. We need it, you need it, we all need it.

Who doesn’t want to scream the lyrics to the classic Mr Brightside alongside Brandon Flowers? Don’t we all have a friend who has a boyfriend who looks like a girlfriend that we had in February of last year? Aren’t we all waiting for a beautiful boy who doesn’t look a thing like Jesus but talks like a gentleman that we imagined when we were young?

You know we’re right. So we’re begging you, the beautiful people of Adelaide: start a petition and give Adelaide the night it deserves. Viva la revolution!

The widely-acclaimed rock band will play seven arena shows on their biggest Australasian tour to date, touring in celebration of their fifth studio album Wonderful Wonderful (out 22 September through Island Records/Universal Music Australia).

Kicking off in New Zealand at Auckland’s Spark Arena on Friday 20 April, the band will visit Wellington and Christchurch before heading to Australia to perform in Brisbane, Sydney and Perth, before wrapping up the tour at Melbourne’s Hisense Arena on Friday 4 May.

The Killers burst onto the scene in 2004, topping Australian charts and going Double Platinum with their debut album Hot Fuss. Featuring hit singles ‘Mr. Brightside’ and ‘Somebody Told Me’, the album received instant popularity and widespread international success.

Their early success continued with two further platinum albums Sam’s Town (2006) and Day & Age (2008), smash singles like ‘When You Were Young’, ‘Human’ and ‘Read My Mind’, and a touring schedule featuring headline arena shows and festival slots around the world including Glastonbury, Coachella and Lollapalooza.

The band’s forthcoming new album Wonderful Wonderful is the band’s first new material since Battle Born (2012). Produced by Jacknife Lee, the album was recorded between Jacknife’s Los Angeles studio and the band’s own Battle Born recording studio in Vegas.

Teased by a series of incredible new songs – ‘The Man’, ‘Run For Cover’, ‘Some Kind Of Love’ and title track ‘Wonderful Wonderful’ – the album is the band’s most sonically forward-thinking record yet, bursting with all of the blazing choruses and arena-pleasing anthems that make them one of the world’s biggest and beloved rock bands.

Back in Australia towards the end of the month, The Killers will be performing in the Virgin Australia Pre-Game Show and Virgin Australia Premiership Party on the 2017 Toyota AFL Grand Final Day (Saturday 30 September). Guaranteed to provide audiences with an outstanding live show, the performance will be a precursor to the incredible tour set to hit our shores next year.
