The Killers have dropped a quick note to fans on social media, sharing that they won’t be selling tickets to their future shows just yet amid the spread of coronavirus, otherwise known as COVID-19.

The Killers are scheduled to arrive on our shores in November of this year, with shows in Brissy, Sydney, Perth, and Melbourne. Tickets for these shows were supposed to go on sale March 23.

“The news is changing every hour around coronavirus and, ultimately, we want you, our fans, to stay focused on prevention and remaining safe and cautious right now,” the statement read.

“In addition, once we go on sale, we will be providing a portion of our ticketing income to local organisations who help people whose service industry jobs are impacted by the coronavirus in each of our tour cities. We are taking this personally. Both we and our families have had these jobs and our hearts go out to those affected.”

The band added that if anything changes again, they’ll update fans as soon as possible. You can also keep updated through the Frontier Touring waitlist over on the tour’s website.

“In the meantime, we’re more excited than ever to sing these songs with you, and can’t wait to see you soon. Watch this space for the updated ticket information.”

Like a slew of big names out there, The Killers’ frontman Brandon Flowers has used his platform to remind fans to wash their hands for the advised 20 seconds. Officials have recommended singing Happy Birthday twice, but you can use other songs too… like Mr Brightside. A slightly different Mr Brightside.

And, there you have it.
