About the Band
Brandon Flowers, Dave
Keuning, Mark Stoermer, and Ronnie Vannucci Jr. first got together to form the Killers in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2001. Dave
Keunig had placed an ad in a Las Vegas newspaper which Brandon Flowers responded to after leaving his previous synthpop band
Blush Response because he did not want to move to Los Angeles with them. The two realized they had similar musical tastes
and started writing songs together, eventually recording a four song demo that featured "Mr. Brightside", "Under the Gun",
"Replaceable", and "Desperate". By 2002 the band was complete and were practicing in the UNLV band room and working on many
of the songs that would end up on their debut album Hot Fuss. The album was released in 2004 and was a huge worldwide success.
They have recorded four albums to date: Hot Fuss, Sam's Town, Day & Age, and Battle Born. The band has won several awards
including NME Awards, BRIT Awards, MTV Awards, and others.
The Killers' debut album Hot Fuss
was a massive hit all over the world. Before the album even came out Mr. Brightside had made its debut on the BBC and was
released as a limited edition single that was sold at their shows in England. The single and the shows were both highly praised
resulting in the Killers being invited to perform at the ASCAP CMJ Music Marathon in New York City which landed them a recording
contract with Island Def Jam. After releasing their debut the band toured with acts including British Sea Power, Stellastar,
and Morrissey. While on tour opening for bigger acts, singles like "Somebody Told Me" and "Mr. Brightside" began catching
on and "Hot Fuss" was well on its way to going platinum multiple times in countries all over the world.
appeared to slow down in the days leading up to the night of the concert, but finally as the lights lower you begin to see
the talented group Killers making their way out onto the stage. The crowd erupts in applause as the band members pick up their
instruments each other signalling that they are ready to begin. A hush falls over the crowd as the band busts in to some of
their biggest hits, and plays them all one after another. The crowd once again erupts and sings and dances along to hits throughout
the night. The entire venue is drenched in beautiful noise as the Killers bring their soaring harmonies and indie rock sound
to the forefront. You will be wondering if this is the future of pop music or the future of rock. Either way, you are witnessing
one of the most exciting and fresh bands of the past ten years at the height of their powers, so sit back and enjoy. The high
energy output from the band translates perfectly to the crowd and you spend the entire night dancing and singing along. If
there is just one concert you attend in the next few months make sure it is the Killers.
