Chart-topping American rock band The Killers will be playing their first ever concert in Korea on Saturday, October 5 in Seoul at Olympic Hall in Olympic Park.
Formed in 2001 in Las Vegas, over the past dozen years the quartet have released four full-lengths, headlined some of the biggest music festivals in the world, and gathered a whole lots of accolades and awards. Their first album, 2004’s “Hot Fuss,” was ranked no. 33 on Rolling Stone Magazine’s “The 100 Best Debut Albums of All Time” list, and the disc’s lead single, “Mr. Brightside,” was ranked no. 5 on NME’s 2011 “150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years” list.
The Killers are currently on tour in support of last year’s “Battle Born.” This past June they played the 90,000 capacity Wembley Stadium in London – their largest headlining gig to date. The Guardian reviewed the concert and gave the band a 5/5 for their performance, which bodes well for fans attending The Killers’ upcoming Seoul performance.
The group recently announced that they will be releasing a greatest hits album in November called “Direct Hits.” The offering will also boast two new songs including a track called “Shot at the Night” which was produced by M83′s Anthony Gonzalez. You can check out “Shot at the Night” below.
The Killers play at Olympic Hall in Olympic Park on Saturday, October 5. The show starts at 7 pm and tickets cost from 77,000 won – 121,000 won. Advanced tickets can be purchased in English here and in Korea here.
