International hit band The Killers will be performing an exclusive gig for BBC Radio 1 live at The Forum on Monday 10 September, as announced on air in Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show.

The band will perform a selection of new material from their forthcoming album, along with hits from their back catalogue. The performance will be broadcast live on Radio 1 in a special edition of Zane Lowe’s show on Monday 10 September, including an interview with the band. The gig will be streamed on bbc.co.uk/radio1

As part of the gig, free tickets will be offered to Radio 1 listeners. Ticket registration will open on Tuesday 28 August in Zane Lowe’s show and close on Saturday 1 September in Huw Stephen's show. Further details will be announced in the next couple of weeks by Zane as to how listeners can register online for free tickets.

The Killers gig is part of BBC Radio 1's Massive Month of Live Music, which this September will see exclusive live performances from some of the biggest bands on the station. Details of other performances will be announced shortly.

Neil Wyatt, Editor of Radio 1 & 1Xtra Live Events, says: “This September is all about incredible live music on Radio 1. The Killers are one of the biggest bands around and I can’t think of a better way to start our month of live music across Radio 1 than having them play a gig exclusively for our listeners.”

Formed in 2001 The Killers achieved critical and commercial success following the release of their first album Hot Fuss. They have since released two other studio albums with their anticipated fourth studio album due for release this autumn. The band have won two Brit awards and been nominated for seven Grammy awards.
