THE Killers have announced details of a summer 2024 tour which will begin with two shows in Dublin next June.

These arena shows will mark the Brandon Flowers-led band’s 20th anniversary, which is also being celebrated with a new career-spanning compilation, Rebel Diamonds, set for release next week.

Rebel Diamonds features 20 tracks, including their hits Mr Brightside, When You Were Young, All These Things That I’ve Done, Human, Read My Mind and The Man through to the band’s most recently released single Your Side of Town, and one brand new song, Spirit.

The album features at least one song from each of the band’s seven studio albums, from their 2004 debut Hot Fuss to their latest full length, 2021’s Pressure Machine.

Next year's dates will be the first time The Killers will have played arena shows in the UK and Ireland since 2017’s Wonderful Wonderful tour.
