What a delightful time I had the other night with some of my very favorite people at The Killers show. I confess I wasn’t always such fan of The Killers. For the most part, I hate show tunes and Vegas and this band smacks of both. Furthermore, for some irrational reason I really, really, really hate that song When You Were Young.This tour is in service of Battle Born, the band’s most recent release, so no big surprise they played most of that (just-okay) album. My personal highlight was Somebody Told Me off 2004’s Hot Fuss. Biggest disappointment? I didn’t even get one song from Brandon Flowers’ totally decent solo album Flamingo. The Killers play a super fucking loud and unapologetically glittery and fire-filled show. It is akin to hot-boxing a giant sparkler.
