Led by the single and instant radio hit “The Man,” Wonderful Wonderful became one of the band’s most momentous albums to date. It was all the fuel they needed for a tour which would result in 135 shows, spread over 34 countries, and five continents.
Just last week, The Killers confirmed the year-long rumors of a new album in the works. The band announced Friday (Nov. 15) that a new Killers album, their sixth, will arrive in Spring 2020. Along with the album announcement came a limited, U.K tour schedule. The concerts will feature support from Blossoms, Sam Fender, and Manic Street. You can check out the dates, below.

The sixth Killers album, titled Imploding the Mirage, will arrive just ahead of their U.K Tour. In previous album cycles, The Killers began touring before the record officially dropped. The “Wonderful Wonderful” Tour kicked off February 11, 2017 in Orlando, the album arriving months later on September 22, 2017.
This trend existed back with 2012’s Battle Born, which arrived almost a year and a half after their return to the stage on April 30, 2011. Because The Killers have a tendency to begin touring far ahead of their record releases, we think this bodes well for additional, North American Tour Dates to be announced for early 2020.
Will The Killers Tour North America in 2020? We think it’s almost certain. The Killers have never excluded North America on their touring cycles. The Las Vegas-formed band tends to tour internationally, but even with more limited tour cycles, they’ve spent substantial time on this part of the globe.
Check back soon, as we think The Killers will announce North American tour dates for the promotion of Imploding the Mirage any day now.
