The two shows, the Killers' first UK dates in almost two years, will take place on June 22 and 23, the NME reports. The 'Mr. Brightside' rockers return to British shores as they begin work on composing songs for fourth studio album. They have been on hiatus since the release of 2009's 'Day and Age', with frontman Flowers keeping busy by issuing a solo effort, 'Flamingo,' during the time off from his day job.
The Killers will be joined at Hard Rock Calling on Friday by their near-namesakes the Kills, who headline the second stage, Kaiser Chiefs and James. Bon Jovi and Rod Stewart top the bill on Saturday and Sunday.
