Yesss! April 30th is the day The Killers are coming to Austria, and not just anywhere, but to Ischgl. To Ischgl? Yes, to Ischgl, smack in the middle of the ski resort on the Idalp. There, at 1 p.m., on a specially constructed stage, the world-famous band will rock out on hits like “Mr Brightsight,” “Human,” and “Smile Like You Mean It.”
“Are We Human, or Are We Dancer?”
One thing is for sure: when four musicians from Las Vegas, Nevada (USA) hit the stage for the season-ending show, the crowd is going to go crazy. After releasing six albums, the band has earned a little break. Their return has already been announced for the Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago this summer. So we’ll see if the Killers will play a new number or two live in Ischgl!
What Do Tina Turner, Sting, and Wir Sind Helden Have in Common?
They have all performed at the Top of the Mountain; for nearly 20 years now, the mountain in Ischgl has hosted several shows a year. It all started in 1993, with Boney M. The major headliner in 1995 was Elton John, who was matched by Tina Turner in 1996. The headliners in recent years have been equally big: Kylie Minogue, Alicia Keys, Katy Perry, and the great Beth Ditto of Gossip. In 2008 Elton John decided to play a second concert on the Idalp, where he supplied the requisite “Harmony.”
Anyone who would like to see The Killers live in concert needs a day pass for the resort. Because of the concert, ski passes are more expensive on that day, €75. Anyone who combines the concert with a multi-day ski vacation will pay €100 for a two-day pass and only €108 for three days. This deal is valid as long as the day of The Killers concert falls within the valid days covered by the ski pass.
