The Killers have tapped New Hampshire quartet Wild Light to be the main support on their upcoming North American tour, which kicks off April 17, 2009 at the highly anticipated re-opening of Las Vegasâ€™ premier rock club, The Joint. During this 10 city trek Wild Light will play to packed crowds at arenas including the San Jose Events Center in San Jose and the WAMU Theater in Seattle, before closing the tour with a final show at the Capitol Federal Park in Bonner Springs, KS on May 2nd.
This highly coveted main supporting slot comes on the heels of what has already been a wildly successful 2009 for Wild Light. The band kicked off the year with a bang when they hit the road with Tapes N Tapes for their first ever National tour, in support of the March 3rd release of their debut album Adult Nights (Startime International). Recorded in LA with famed producer Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliott Smith) the album has received raves from prestigious publications including SPIN, Rolling Stone, The LA Times, Paste Magazine and Billboard among others. Following their run with Tapes N Tapes, the band descended upon Austin, TX at the annual SXSW Music Festival where they played a slew of successful performances to fans and industry heads alike from across the world.
