Brandon Flowers previously teased the possibility of The Killers playing Hot Fuss shows.

The band's debut album was released on 7th June 2004 and included the hits Mr. Brightside, Smile Like You Mean It, Somebody Told Me and All These Things That I Have Done.

When speaking to Zane Lowe about their career over the last 20 years, Lowe remarked at the end of their interview: “Twenty years, isn’t it crazy?" to which the frontman responded: "It is crazy. I’ve got 20 more in me."

Then quizzed if there could be more music around the corner, he replied: “No. I think we are planning maybe some anniversary shows, which I wish I could tell more [...] so we will figure something out there..."

Lowe, then looking at his notes exclaimed: "Oh they’re f***ng here! I won’t say anything. They are small! Yo, one of those is f***ing small. Dude. Oh my god. Bro, that is like... I might have to come out for that."

Keeping his tight-lipped Flowers continued: "The goal for me if I can get anybody on the phone is to get all four of us to make a record."

The Killers’ Las Vegas residency follows on from their previously announced Rebel Diamonds Tour in the UK and Ireland, which takes in 16 arena shows (their first UK arena dates since 2017), including a massive six nights at London’s The O2.

Announcing their celebratory shows on this side of the pond, the band said: "It's only right that we give first dibs to the land that gave us our first big shot at doing what we do!"

Their summer dates, which went on sale this week, will see the band play three nights each at Dublin's 3Arena and Glasgow's OVO Hydro plus four mammoth nights each at The Co-Op Manchester and The O2, London - with extra dates added due to phenomenal demand.
