Tennent’s Vital is back for 2014 and Tennent’s Lager bosses have announced that The Killers will bring the bright lights of Vegas to Boucher Road Playing Fields on Thursday 21st August. They'll headline the Boucher Road site joined by very special guests, Bastille.
One of the biggest bands in the world, The Killers have sold over 20 million albums, headlined festivals across the globe, performed at the White House and amassed countless prestigious accolades including BRIT, NME and MTV Awards. Each of their four studio albums has topped the UK charts (the band ranks in the Top 3 of Amazon’s biggest selling artists of the past decade). Their epic, synth-driven rock ‘n’ roll and incredible energy make them one of the greatest live acts on the planet, and their highly anticipated return to Tennent’s Vital (they last played in 2007) is sure to be the hottest ticket of the summer.
Joining them on the bill are the biggest breakthrough act of the past year, Bastille, who burst onto the scene when their anthemic single Pompeii charted at number two. It went on to become the second most streamed track of 2013, just behind Daft Punk’s Get Lucky. Their album, Bad Blood, entered the charts at number one and quickly achieved platinum status before going on to become the biggest selling debut album of the year (with over 2m copies sold worldwide to date), the most downloaded and the second most-streamed album of 2013. They began 2014 on a high, picking up a well-deserved BRIT Award for British Breakthrough Act and their return to Northern Ireland is hotly anticipated.
