The Killers have postponed putting tickets on sale for their upcoming tour supporting the release of Imploding the Mirage.
“The news is changing every hour around Coronavirus, and, ultimately, we want you, our fans, to stay focused on prevention and remaining safe,” a message on the band’s Instagram account read.
They added that a portion of ticket sales will go to folks in the service industry whose jobs were impacted by the slowdown.
On Sunday, after posting a doctored clip of a town in Italy singing to their music, singer Brandon Flowers shared a video of himself washing his hands with the band’s hit “Mr. Brightside” playing in the background.
