The Killers to headline Isle of Wight Festival

The Killers have been announced as the final headliner for next year's Isle of Wight Festival.

The US rock group are due to play the iconic event on Saturday June 15 as they hit the main stage.

The news follows the previous announcement of Bon Jovi and The Stone Roses as the festival's other headliners.

Speaking about the new addition, Isle of Wight Festival promoter John Giddings said:

"We are proud to bring one of the world's greatest rock bands of the last decade to our small island off the South Coast of England…thanks for coming - it will be a weekend to remember!"

The date is the latest big gig to be added to The Killers' 2013 schedule, which already sees the group playing at Scotland's T in the Park and London's Wembley Stadium in June and July.

The band, however, recently axed a number of shows in the US and Canada after a bout of laryngitis.
