It may have taken a while, but looking on the 'brightside' has never been easier for San Diego fans of the Killers: The Las Vegas-based band is hitting the road next year -- and they've announced a show at Valley View Casino Center on Jan. 30, 2018!
The arena-rock band, which is currently prepping the Sept. 22 release of their fifth studio album titled "Wonderful Wonderful," will be embarking on a North American tour -- their first since 2013.
They hit the UK in November for several shows (all of which are already sold out) before heading back home and kicking off the upcoming North American leg on Jan. 5, 2018 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario. Over the following five weeks, they'll make their way across the country, stop in America's Finest City on Jan. 30, and then wrap up in Salt Lake city, Utah on Feb. 6.
Tickets for all shows go on sale at 10 a.m. PST on Aug. 11 (bookmark this link). Pre-sales will be made available to members of the band's fanclub, the Victims. For a limited time, each ticket purchased for the tour will include a copy of the band's new album. Go here for more information.
Since San Diego's basically a hop, skip, and a jump away from Vegas, we've been treated to a couple surprise Killers shows over the last few years, as the band seems to have thing for us (they also occasionally tap San Diego musician Brian Karscig and his bands, the Nervous Wreckords and/or Louis XIV, to open some of their shows).
On a whim, they played a free show at the Belly Up in January of 2016 after performing at a private event hosted by booking/management company William Morris Endeavor earlier in the evening. They also rocked a one-off show at the Observatory North Park in Sept. 19, 2015 (which, of course, sold out instantly) prior to headlining that year's Kaaboo Del Mar festival the very next night.
It'll be nice to have the band roll through town at a huge venue, so every Killers fan can partake in the fun. See you there!
