The Killers hit London as headline act for Hard Rock Calling
Date Posted: 18/04/11
The Killers have been named as the third and final headline act for this year's Hard Rock Calling event, which takes place in Hyde Park this summer.
Music fans booking short breaks will be able to see the band in action on Friday June 24th, with Bon Jovi taking centre stage a night later and Rod Stewart, Train, Rumer, Stevie Nicks and Adam Ant closing the festival on Sunday June 26th.
"It's been too long, friends. Feels like forever since we've seen each other and now it's time we pay a visit. Have to get the machine oiled and ready to make this kinda thing happen more often. Feeling creative, let's do this," said Ronnie Vannucci from the Killers.
The band have had a string of hits in the past, including festival favourites Mr Brightside, Somebody Told Me and Human.
Last month, Vannucci told the BBC that The Killers will take their time with their next album, after "rushing" things in the past.
