UK singles chart history-makers The Killers are making their welcome return to the United Kingdom next week!

The incredibly catchy song, used in television, film, advertising and a karaoke favourite, has never reached the top of the UK singles chart since its release in 2003. But such has been the enduring nature of the song, with Brandon Flowers’ earnest vocals declaring himself as the titular “Mr Brightside” having spent a total of five years in the UK singles chart.

The song also surpassed “Wonderwall” by Oasis as the biggest-selling single by an artist on the UK charts that has never peaked in the top position, with the closest the group have come to topping the UK singles charts coming in the form of “Human,” released in 2008 which peaked at number three.

The Killers however have had greater success on the UK album chart, earning eight different number-one albums, including “Hot Fuss,” the album which “Mr Brightside” originated from.

Have you been left feeling nostalgic for Brandon Flowers et al? Perhaps you’ve decided at the 11th hour that a trip to one of The Killers’ UK performances might be worth the punt for tickets after all. 

So where can one get tickets to see the group on their UK tour - and what could they perform that isn’t “Mr Brightside?”

Are there any tickets left to see The Killers on their UK Tour in 2024?

There are still tickets available to see The Killers performing across several dates as part of their UK tour, but as is the case with their Manchester Co-Op Live performance, those tickets are selling out fast. 

Ticketmaster are the ticketing agents for the tour, and for those wishing to sing along to all The Killer’s greatest hits, they’re performing at the following venues - ticket links included to save you navigating around the website too. 

What could The Killers play during their UK tour - aside from “Mr Brightside”? 

We look back at the set that The Killers performed at the Governors Ball 2024, held at Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens, NY, USA earlier this month (June 8 2024). Alongside the usual hits, the band also took a moment to cover “Maps” by Yeah Yeah Yeah’s and “A Little Respect” by Erasure (Credit: Setlist.FM)
