The Killers announce tour despite coronavirus concerns

Las Vegas-based rockers The Killers have come out of the woodwork after keeping a relatively low profile for the last two years, revealing not only the lead single, Caution, from their upcoming studio album Imploding the Mirage, but plans for a 31-date North American tour, too.

On the upcoming Imploding the Mirage world tour, frontman Brandon Flowers and co. will play shows across the U.S. and Canada between August and October.

Despite the elation among many die-hard fans, Thursday’s news comes amid worldwide concern pertaining to the novel coronavirus illness, COVID-19, making it a potentially inopportune time for the When You Were Young rockers’ comeback.

From the cancellation of the 2020 Juno Awards and the suspension of the 2019-20 NHL season on Thursday to the ongoing postponements of concert tours continent-wide in the last two weeks, it’s clear that the global pandemic has quite literally plagued the entertainment industry as a whole.
