The Killers at Ashton Gate rescheduled to Thursday 26 May 2022
The Killers are coming out of their cage, and they’ve been doing just fine: the American rock band have announced they will be performing in Bristol next summer, as part of a UK stadium tour.
***RESCHEDULED TO 26 MAY 2022 DUE TO COVID-19 DURING 2020 and 2021**
The Killers will play a huge headline gig at Ashton Gate Stadium (which has a capacity of 32,000) on Thursday 26 May 2022.
The string of tour dates accompanies the announcement of the band’s sixth studio album, Imploding The Mirage, which wass due for release in Spring 2020.
It’s the band’s biggest UK and Ireland tour to date, and it’ll be the first time they will perform here in Bristol.
At Ashton Gate, The Killers will be joined by special guests Manic Street Preachers. The Welsh rock band is responsible for the seminal album, This Is My Truth, Tell Me Yours.
Tickets went on sale at 9:00am on Friday, 22 November 2019. Get yours here.
Responsible for anthems 'Mr Brightside' and 'Human', The Killers have earned themselves cult status over the years.
Seven-time Grammy and BRIT award nominees and NME's 'Best International Band' of 2005, 2008, 2009, and 2013, The Killers' Americana-inspired sound spans heartland rock, new wave revivalism and indie synth pop.
Similar success applies to Welsh rockers Manic Street Preachers, who first rose to prominence in the 90s.
The Manic Street Preachers, who last performed in Bristol back in 2017, started out with the intention of restoring rock and roll in a generation dominated by show gaze and acid house. Now, both bands will unite in Bristol for a one-off gig.
In 2019, Ashton Gate Stadium welcomed the likes of the Spice Girls and Take That, who performed high-demand headline shows. We'd expect no different from The Killers' first-time Bristol show.
