British Summer Time announce The Killers as final headliner

The Killers have added a date to this year’s British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park.

They’ll take to the Hyde Park stage on July 8, and will be joined by Elbow, Tears For Fears and White Lies, with many more still to be announced.

The show will be their only UK festival of 2017.

The Killers are just one of six headliners at BST this year, with the others including Phil Collins, Green Day, Justin Bieber, Kings Of Leon and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers.

The band started working on their fifth album back in September, and last week updated Q.  He said: “There are moments that feel heavier than anything we’ve ever done, not that we’re the heaviest band in the world, but they have a finesse because of our experience. There’s also really beautiful things. Lyrically, it’s really close to home.”

Tickets are on pre-sale now, and will then go on general sale from 9am on Friday (January 27).
