The Killers Set For Break

THE KILLERS will take an extended hiatus after the band completes its current run of shows in Australia next month (Feb09).
The rockers are exhausted after releasing three albums and touring extensively across the globe since hitting the spotlight in 2004 - and now they're looking forward to some time off once they finish their planned festivals slots Down Under.
Guitarist Dave Keuning says, "I'm not sure if people are aware of it but this is probably our last shows for a while. Unless some surprise thing comes up but most likely these are our last shows for a while. We're having a break.
"We haven't had a break in quite a while. It's just been touring and making records and on and on and on. It's been like six years just kind of connected together. There hasn't been much time where we haven't been either touring or taking time to make another record. It's like people just expect us to do that non-stop till we die, but we just want a little bit of time off, just to be myself and do what I want to do for a little bit."
When asked if it is a permanent split, Keuning responded, "Not as far as I know."
