The Killers will be the stars of the season-closing Top of the Mountain concert in the Austrian resort of Ischgl on Saturday 30 April.

One of the best-selling bands of this century so far – their Day and Age album was in the Top 10 of best albums – The Killers have stacked up a huge list of awards since forming in Las Vegas, Nevada, in 2001.

In the UK, their single Mr Brightside has been voted the second-best song of the decade and the album Hot Fuss spent a record 173 weeks in the UK Albums Chart. The band have sold more than 5million albums in the UK and 15million albums worldwide.

This season's opening concert was performed by Beth Ditto and her Indie rock band Gossip at the end of November 2010 to an enthusiastic crowd of 20,000.

The Top of the Mountain concert at Idalp, near the top station of the main Silvretta gondola out of Ischgl, comes in the middle of the UK’s ‘Bonus Royal Bank Holiday Weekend’ and a great excuse to escape to the mountains.

Ischgl, Austria

Snowboard Guide rating 9 out of 10 “Ischgl has plenty of good wide intermediate slopes, and hidden off-piste stashes. A super fast lift system, a season that lasts until May, great terrain park, and the most full on apres in the Alps, completes the package.”
