We reported yesterday that Mumford & Sons and Rihanna had signed up headline two of the three nights at T In The Park, the Scottish music festival which often serves as a precursor to what you can expect to see at Oxegen - or whatever Oxegen's equivalent will be this year. The two festivals have historically taken place on the same weekend in July and often share large segments of their line-ups.
Well, depending on how correct this idle speculation of mine is, you could very well see The Killers on the main stage at Oxegen next year, as Brandon Flowers and his band have been confirmed by T In The Park's Geoff Ellis as co-headliners.
Speaking of the band's addition, Ellis said: "The Killers topped our fan poll as the artist our audience most wanted to see in 2013, and we are absolutely thrilled to announce them as our third headliners for T In The Park's 20th edition. They're one of the biggest bands in the world, and when we brought them to Scotland, demand was so high we could have sold our the show four times over."
The Killers previously served as headliners for the 2007 and 2009 T In The Park festivals.
So, what do you think of this? The only apparent stumbling block to this might be the fact that The Killers headlined the main stage on the final day of this year's Electric Picnic. Are two big headline slots in Ireland in less than twelve months a bit much for the band? Time will tell on this one.
