The Las Vegas rockers are due to kick off their UK tour in Doncaster on May 26 – but there have been no official announcements from the band on whether the show has been called off because of the coronavirus crisis.

It has been widely expected for a number of months that the date would not be able to go ahead.

However, Drummer Ronnie Vanucci Jr has now told fans that the show has been ‘postponed, not cancelled.’

The Killers were due to play the Keepmoat on May 26.

On Sunday he told his Instagram followers: "This thing keeps growing. Our first stop is the UK. This is what we've been preparing for.

"We’ve been thinking about this for over a year and all of a sudden we’ve had to slam on the brakes.

"It’s definitely postponed, not a cancellation kind of ordeal.

"We were very early to get the next available dates for next year, we’ve got, I think it’s called a first hold on a lot of things.”

"We saw this coming sort of early, or rather our agent Kirk Sommer, who's a special person in our lives, saw this coming and hopefully we got the jump on it."

The Imploding The Mirage tour was set to visit a number of UK stadiums this summer.

No official announcement has been made by the band about a rescheduled date for the concert.
