The Killers to Rock Down Under
The Killers will shine on in the hearts of Australian music lovers. To kick off 2013 in the midst of bliss and neon lights, the Vegas emperors will fill theatres from Down Under this month with their explosive and awe-inspiring rhythms. The emotion was electric and the stars aligned last year with the release of the band's new album “Battle Born”, followed by a world tour that finally brings The Killers back to Australian shores.
The last time The Killers performed on the soil of Oz was a few years ago while they were promoting their third album “Day & Age” as headliners of two festivals –the V-Festival (2009) and Good Vibrations (2010).
The joy ride started months ago when they announced they will headline the festival Big Day Out alongside bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers and Vampire Weekend- in five different locations: on January 18th in Sydney, then the festival will take them to Southport (QLD) on January 20th, in Adelaide on January 25th, Melbourne on January 26th, and finally Claremont on January 28th.
After the release of “Battle Born”, the American rock band announced two sideshows that will complement their appearances at Big Day Out in January. These shows will take place at intimate venues in Sydney –Metro Theatre- on January 16th, and in Melbourne –Palace Theatre –January 22nd.
Magic fills the stage when The Killers play. Their gigs are known for being breathtaking, mind-blowing, spectacular and marvelous. On this tour, Brandon's pedestal for the microphone is in the shape of a lightning bolt as the icon of their new album, from which they play many songs live.
Along with their new singles “Runaways”, “Miss Atomic Bomb” and “Here With Me”, they have been playing hot classics like “Mr. Brightside”, “Somebody told Me”, taking the audience on a journey across the galaxy with “Spaceman”, proclaimed time, truth and hearts on “All these things that I've done”, filled our eyes with tears with the line moon river, what you do to me from “A Dustland Fairytale” and burst out the seams with an explosion of adrenaline propelled by “When you were young”.
The music lives through Brandon Flowers' powerful and astounding vocals, Mark Stoermer's captivating bass, Ronnie Vanucci's powerful drums and mythical Dave Keuning's soul-filling guitar. These legendary band's performances more than ever sweep audiences off their feet… just as promised.
No… We can't wait till tomorrow.
