The Killers have announced their biggest ever UK and Ireland stadium tour, along with the confirmation of their hotly anticipated sixth studio album, Imploding The Mirage, which will be released in Spring 2020.
Ashton Gate is one of just nine stadiums that The Killers will play with special guests Manic Street Preachers set to entertain fans too.
Mark Kelly managing director of Ashton Gate Stadium said: “I am delighted that we have secured such a renowned act to perform here for the first time in Bristol. The Killers have had five chart-topping albums since 2001 and are one of the most iconic rock bands of the 21st century. With the Manic Street Preachers as their support act, it’s set to be another memorable night for the stadium with a 32,000 crowd capacity.
“Following a successful concert series last summer, it was important to select the right act for Ashton Gate. We are home to Bristol City and Bristol Bears and any event that we put on here has to align with their playing schedules.
“We’ve worked closely with Bristol Bears to ensure that this event won’t have any impact on the playing surface should the rugby club achieve a home semi-final in the Gallagher Premiership.
“As the only venue in the South West to secure The Killers, we’re expecting ticket sales to surpass last year’s high demand for the Spice Girls and Take That.”
