We’re back! After the toughest two years in a day on the green’s 21-year history, Australia’s favourite outdoor concert event is proud to announce its return with the a day on the green debut for one of the biggest live bands in the world – THE KILLERS.
Roundhouse Entertainment and Frontier Touring are thrilled to welcome THE KILLERS back to Australia and New Zealand for a massive nine-date mix of arena and outdoor shows on their Imploding The Mirage Tour 2022 in November-December. Originally announced in 2020 when COVID first halted worldwide touring, this will be THE KILLERS’ first time back on our shores since their 2018 Australasian tour which included ten completely sold-out arena shows.
The tour will see THE KILLERS make their a day on the green debut with two big outdoor shows – Peter Lehmann in the Barossa Valley, SA on Saturday 3 December and Mt Duneed Estate in Geelong, VIC on Saturday 10 December, 2022.
THE KILLERS will play headline shows and festivals across the globe in celebration of their sixth studio album, the critically acclaimed ARIA #1 album Imploding The Mirage (out now through Island Records/Universal Music Australia).
In 2021 while touring was still on hold due to the pandemic, THE KILLERS released their seventh studio album, the quieter, character-study-driven Pressure Machine. It’s an aural document of growing up – and living – in the American Southwest, told from a myriad of perspectives. Pressure Machine includes Quiet Town and Runaway Horses (featuring Phoebe Bridgers). The band performed album track In Another Life on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
Imploding The Mirage was self-produced by the band in partnership with musical engineer Shawn Everett (The War On Drugs, Kacey Musgraves, Beck) and Foxygen multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Rado. The album, as a whole, is heavily influenced by the likes of Kate Bush, Peter Gabriel, Bruce Springsteen and New Order and was a return to the Heartland Rock sounds of much-loved albums like Sam’s Town and Battle Born. The list of featured artists includes Lindsey Buckingham, k.d. lang, Weyes Blood, Adam Granduciel (War On Drugs), Blake Mills, and Lucius.
THE KILLERS first burst onto the scene in 2004, topping Australian charts and going double platinum with debut album Hot Fuss. Featuring hit singles Mr. Brightside and Somebody Told Me, the album received instant popularity and widespread international success. Since then, the band have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, and headlined all of the world’s top festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, and received countless accolades, including multiple Grammy nominations, American Music Award nominations, MTV Video Music Awards and NME Awards. THE KILLERS have amassed more than 393 million streams and sold more than one million albums (and counting) in Australia alone!On the very same day that 2017’s Wonderful Wonderful hit #1 on the ARIA Album chart, the band took to the stage at the hallowed Melbourne Cricket Ground for the 2017 AFL Grand Final and absolutely nailed their set:
THE KILLERS are exceptionally well-loved Down Under with all ten shows on the band’s 2018 tour completely selling out.
Live music is back and we’re thrilled to welcome fans back to a day on the green to celebrate our 21st season. Secure tickets now for these not-to-be-missed shows.
