The Killers Are Coming Out Of Their Cage And Touring Australia Later This Year

The Killers Are Coming Out Of Their Cage And Touring Australia Later This Year

The Killers, internationally recognised pub bangers band, have announced a stunning Australian tour for later in 2020.

Known for hits like 'Mr Brightside', 'Human', 'Somebody Told Me' and 'When We Were Young', the band that started in Las Vegas will be hitting our shores in Brisbane, Sydney, Perth and Melbourne in November.

The Killers have dropped a new single from the album, 'Caution', which starts a little slower than their usual bangers, but it lifts at the chorus and will likely have fans dancing in their seats.

It's safe to say, though, that 'Mr Brightside' is one of those songs that will endure as the official 'End of the Night' song at most pubs.

Unsurprisingly, it was named 'Song of the Decade' by UK radio stations Absolute Radio and XFM, and in April 2010 Last.fm revealed that it was the most listened-to track since the launch of the online music service.

It was the debut single for The Killers, and one of the first tracks written for the band by singer Brandon Flowers and guitarist Dave Keuning. When it was first released in 2003, it didn't do that well, but it was re-released the following year and peaked at number 10 in both the UK and US.

Keuning wrote the verses, and Flowers used those ideas to come up with the chorus and the rest of the lyrics. However, the duo worked so quickly to match those draft lyrics with their demos that they never wrote a second verse - that's why its repeated after the chorus.

The song has managed to spend 183 weeks on the Official Charts Hottest 100 list, with the single being played an average of 752,000 times a week.

So you know when the band start playing it in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, everyone is going to go nuts.
