The Killers will play the American Family Insurance Amphitheater at Summerfest on July 5.
The Las Vegas-based band last came to Milwaukee when they headlined the grand opening show of Fiserv Forum in September 2018. The band also played the Eagles Ballroom at the Rave in 2017 ahead of their Lollapalooza headlining act.
For the Summerfest show, The Killers will be joined by alternative rock band Death Cab for Cutie.
The six headlining acts announced so far for Summerfest 2019 include:
- Thomas Rhett with Dustin Lynch and Russell Dickerson on June 26.
- Jason Aldean and Kane Brown on June 28.
- Bon Iver with Lord Huron and Julien Baker on June 29.
- Zac Brown Band on June 30.
- Ozzy Osbourne on July 4.
- The Killers with Death Cab for Cutie on July 5.
Summerfest 2019 runs June 26-30 and July 2-7. Work is currently underway on phase 1 of the new $50 million American Family Insurance Amphitheater at Henry Maier Festival Park. A portion of the amphitheater’s roof was recently raised to nearly twice its original height, increasing the production capabilities of the concert venue.
