The Killers announce outdoor shows on huge 2022 Australia tour

Is there anything more perfect than shouting along to The Killers in the sunshine?

Get your dancing shoes ready because American rockers The Killers are heading our way in 2022.

The November and December tour dates will be The Killers’ first time back on our shores since their 2018 Australasian tour, which included ten sold-out arena shows. But the band did give us a little taste about what we can expect from the tour when they headlined Splendour In The Grass’s virtual festival, Splendour XR earlier this year.

As well as playing arenas in major capital cities, they will also perform two unforgettable a day on the green shows alongside an outdoor show at some of Australia’s most beautiful wineries.

Talk about the perfect way to experience The Killers’ incredible catalogue of hits.

The Killers will tour our shores as part of their 2022 Imploding The Mirage World Tour, which will see the band playing headline shows and festivals across the globe in celebration of their sixth album, the ARIA #1 Imploding The Mirage.

Earlier this year, while touring was still on hold due to the ongoing pandemic, The Killers released their seventh studio album, the quieter, character-study-driven album, Pressure Machine.  The resulting record is an aural document of growing up, and living, in the American Southwest.

So it’s safe to say that alongside classic hits like ‘Mr Brightside’, ‘When We Were Young’, ‘Human’, ‘The Man’, and ‘Bones’, The Killers have got a stack of new music to show Australian fans.

Since bursting on to the scene in 2004 with their double platinum debut album Hot Fuss, The Killers have gone on to sell over 30 million albums worldwide and headline some of the biggest festivals and stages in the world – cementing their place in music fans hearts and playlists in every corner of the globe.

Don’t miss your chance to see The Killers perform in these special, not-to-be-missed outdoor concerts when they land on Australian shores in 2022.

The Killers will bring their new albums Imploding The Mirage and Pressure Machine to Australian stages in November and December 2022. Tickets are on sale via Ticketmaster.com.au.

Make sure you have a My Ticketmaster account

Get the basics covered before tickets go on sale by logging in and checking your Ticketmaster account ahead of time. If you don’t have a Ticketmaster Account then make sure you sign up in advance – Ticketmaster.com.au.

Sign into your My Ticketmaster account ahead of time

Remember to triple check your passwords, account information, and billing information are all filled in correctly in advance, that way you’re not facing any last-minute account updates when trying to process your order.

Keep your options open with ‘Best Available’

Save time by searching “Best Available,” which scans all sections fast – it’s quicker than searching sections one at a time.

Keep an eye on the clock

There will be a time limit applied to all transactions as they’re progressed through the ticket purchasing stages. Remember to keep an eye on the timer on your screen and move through the processing pages as quickly as possible (this is even easier when you’ve completed the account set-up stage we mentioned above).

Don’t refresh your screen

Stick to one window while you’re in the Waiting Room and when you’re being pushed through the Smart Queue and always resist the urge to refresh.

Hitting the refresh button means you’ll lose your place in the queue and, as frustrating as it can get, patience is the only way to win this game. Ticketmaster is equipped with sophisticated systems that are designed to manage and process ticket purchases as quickly as possible. The queuing system that appears on your screen will place you at the front of the line as soon as possible.

Remember: there are a lot of fans

We’re expecting this to be a very popular event. When a popular event goes on sale there are hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of customers all attempting to purchase tickets at the same time. Tickets are sold as long as seats are available, and when an act is as popular as The Killers, sometimes they go very quickly.

Be sure to follow the above tips to ensure you have the best chance of snapping up some tickets.

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: The Killers Australian tour tickets go on general sale from Monday 15 November @ 2pm (local) via Ticketmaster.com.au.
