The Killers confirm headline T in the Park performance


The Killers

The Killers have been confirmed as the third headline act for T in the Park.

They will join Rihanna and Mumford & Sons in Balado Park, helping celebrate the festival's 20th anniversary.

"The Killers topped our fan poll as the artist our audience most wanted to see in 2013," said director Geoff Ellis. "We are absolutely thrilled to announce them as our third headliners."

Other confirmed acts include Jake Bugg, Paloma Faith, Alt-J and Of Monsters and Men.

Geoff Ellis expects The Killers to be a big draw for the festival.

"They're one of the biggest bands in the world, and when we last brought them to Scotland, demand was so high we could have sold out the show four times over," he added.

"With the exception of their Wembley Stadium gig, this is their only announced UK gig of 2013, and we're really excited to announce this spread of acts as a starter for 20 for our 20th year celebrations."

Last year's T in the Park was headlined by Snow Patrol, The Stone Roses and Kasabian.
