The Killers @ Phoenix Park
Tickets Go on Sale Thursday 28th March @ 9.00am
The Killers are to headline an outdoor concert at Phoenix Park on Saturday 13th July subject to licence. Very special guests will be Frank Ocean, Two Door Cinema Club and HAIM.
Following The Killers’ two year hiatus, the rock n roll superstars exploded back into the spotlight with their fourth studio album Battle Born last September. Their recent Belfast and Dublin arena shows, which sold out in a heartbeat, are widely acclaimed as live highlights of 2013 so far.
The story of how The Killers went from Vegas bellhops to OXEGEN and Glastonbury headliners, while amassing a collection of Brit, NME, MTV and ASCAP Awards that their collective mantlepiece now heaves under - is a tale of runaway success.
Double Grammy and Brit award winner Frank Ocean started out ghost-writing tracks for such pop stars as Justin Bieber and Beyoncé, but after joining L.A.'s Odd Future collective, he self-released 2011's nostalgia, ULTRA mixtape, and his own star quickly rose. He has collaborated with Beyoncé and Kanye West and Jay-Z. His follow-up album, channel ORANGE, was released in 2012 to worldwide critical and popular acclaim.
Two Door Cinema Club’s incendiary live shows have become internationally renowned, resulting in the band selling out big venue tours all over the world including the UK, Europe, US, Asia, South America, Japan and South Africa. Their debut album Tourist History achieved platinum status in the UK and Ireland, selling over 1 million copies worldwide. Their new album Beacon is out now.
BBC Sound of 2013 winners HAIM have toured the US with Mumford and Sons, have been guests on Florence and The Machine’s UK arena tour and sold-out their own tour of Europe. HAIM release their new EP, ‘Falling’ on the 29th March 2013. Their debut LP is due for release later this Spring.
