Killers to headline V Festival


Mar 1 2009 by Ben Goldby, Sunday Mercury


AMERICAN rock superstars The Killers are set to headline this year’s V Festival in Staffordshire.


Although organisers have yet to finalise the list of band’s playing at Weston Park in August, the Las Vegas chart-toppers have confirmed they will be topping the bill.


The news follows The Killers’ two sell-out nights at Birmingham’s LG Arena last week, reviewed on Page 8 of today’s Preview pullout.


“We’ve come a long way since we played the Academy in Birmingham,” said frontman Brandon Flowers.


The V Festival annuals attracts tens of thousands of fans from all round the world, and this year runs on August 22 and 23.


The full line-up is expected to be announced tomorrow and is likely to include superband Coldplay, the reunion of Britpop legends Blur, Leicester stadium rockers Kasabian, and Scottish indie favourites Franz Ferdinand. Tickets go on sale from 10am next Friday.

Are Blur going to be playing every major festival this year?


And isn't V just walking adverts for various stuff?


don't think Blur were mentioned on T In The Park list. just read an article about the queues for t tickets closing part of the road in Edinburgh

And I wonder how many of those in the lines for T in the park tickets are armchair touts and will sell on the tickets for a massive markup?


It's one good thing about glastonbury tickets, where the registration might be a pain in the arse, it does cut down on touts trying to make a quick profit
