The Killers set October date at Cleveland’s Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse

As last week turned from pretty normal to anything but, even announcements slowed to a trickle and were dwarfed by an avalanche of cancelations and postponements.

But at least one concert announcement let us dream of a fun post-COVID-19 evening: Alt-rockers The Killers are now slated to party it up Oct. 9 at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse.

The band — known for hits including “Mr. Brightside,” “Somebody Told Me” and “Runaways” — will be on the road in support of its sixth studio album, “The Mirage,” due to drop May 29. The first single, “Caution,” has been released.

Some background on the group from news release from event promoter Live Nation:

Since the release of their 2004 debut, Hot Fuss, The Killers have sold 28 million albums, headlined stadiums and festivals around the world and won dozens of accolades globally. The band continues their reign as America’s heartland heroes as they head into Imploding The Mirage. Following their 2017 Billboard #1 album, Wonderful Wonderful – a love letter of sorts, as Brandon Flowers crafted songs of encouragement to his wife during crippling bouts of depression – Imploding The Mirage is the light after the dark; the overcoming of sadness and moving into celebration. It’s a record about eternal love, perseverance through hard times, and the strength gained from friendships and familial bonds whilst weathering a storm.

Tickets for the show go onsale at 10 a.m. March 20. Begin your search here.
