Just days after The Killers announced their latest Australian tour, the Las Vegas rockers have temporarily postponed the sales of their forthcoming live shows.

Though 2020 is set to be a big year for The Killers, including the release of their sixth album Imploding the Mirage and a number of global tour dates, it appears that even they aren’t immune to the global COVID-19 pandemic.

Having announced their latest Australian tour just last Friday, tickets to these shows were set to go on sale from tomorrow. However, in light of the ongoing health crisis, the band have announced that tickets are still set to go on sale, just not as soon as planned.

“A quick note to say that tickets for our late summer/fall shows will not be going on sale just yet,” they wrote on social media. “The news is changing every hour around Coronavirus and, ultimately, we want you, our fans, to stay focused on prevention and remaining safe and cautious right now.

“In addition, once we go on sale, we will be providing a portion of our ticketing income to local organizations who help people whose service industry jobs are impacted by the Coronavirus in each of our tour cities. We are taking this personally. Both we and our families have had these jobs and our hearts go out to those affected.

“If anything changes again, we’ll let you know; in the meantime, we’re more excited than ever to sing these new songs with you, and can’t wait to see you soon. Watch this space for the updated ticket information!”

Though this news undoubtedly seems worrisome for fans of the band wishing to see the group performing live, the shows are still scheduled to take place as planned, while prospective attendees can also register with Frontier Touring to receive news on when tickets will go up via a ticket waitlist.
