Brandon Flowers and co have announced that their UK shows - scheduled for May and June 2021 - will now take place next year.

The Killers have announced that their UK dates scheduled for May and June 2021 will now take place next year.

Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Imploding The Mirage tour will now reach these shores in 2022, kicking off in Doncaster on 24 May and winding up with a show at Manchester's Emirates Stadium in Old Trafford on 11 June.

The band has also added an extra show at Falkirk Stadium on 7 June, tickets for which go on general sale this Friday (12 March).

The band said in a statement: "UK and Ireland friends… We’re sorry, but there’s no way around this. These will be the same great shows, but we have to move them to next year. All tickets will be honoured, so we really hope you can still join us!”

All tickets held for the original dates will be honoured and are now transferable to the corresponding 2022 show.
