THE KILLERS will play Glasgow’s newest music festival Trnsmt - months after wowing audiences at their sold-out SSE Hydro show.

The Las Vegas rockers will take to the stage at the Glasgow Green on Sunday, July 8 to close the last of five shows at the festival.

The announcement comes after the band, led by frontman Brandon Flowers, impressed audiences at the SSE Hydro last month.

The band are best known for hits All These Things I’ve Done, Mr Brightside and Human. They also recently released their new album Wonderful Wonderful.

Geoff Ellis, Head of DF Concerts said: “We are truly thrilled with The Killers as our closing headliner for Trnsmt2018.

“We can’t wait to welcome the band to Glasgow Green for the first time, after a phenomenal show at The SSE Hydro in November.

“Stay tuned for more from Trnsmt, because we still have two incredible days of music to announce.”

The headliners will be joined by Scottish electronic act Chvrches and indie rockers Franz Ferdinand.

Synth-pop phenomenon Chvrches will make a Glasgow Green debut in July. An especially important slot for the Glasgow band, the Lauren Mayberry fronted trio will return to their hometown after an incredible six years in the industry.

Trnsmt will also be a hometown show to remember for indie rockers Franz Ferdinand, who return to the Glasgow stage once again with a fresh new line-up. The indie heroes have marked the beginning of a new era and are veering towards a vibrant synth-based electronic sound on Always Ascending, the first single from the upcoming album.

Franz Ferdinand stormed onto the scene in 2002, with critics hailing them as a post-punk revival band who have been both Grammy and Brit Award nominated for singles Take Me Out and Do You Want To, which, over 10 years after their release, are as popular now as they have ever been.

These new acts join Trnsmt’s recent announcement of Kodaline and Krept x Konan, added to June 29 and 30 respectively.

We previously reported that Trnsmt has been extended to five days over two weekends next year.

It comes after the new music festival, which was held after T in the Park did not go ahead last year, had a successful debut with headliners Kasabian, Radiohead and Biffy Clyro drawing in the crowds.

The organisers have already announced headliners Liam Gallagher and Stereophonics as well as acts including The Script, Courteeners, James Bay Jessie J and J Hus.

Tickets for Sunday go on sale on Friday.
