Tonight one of the biggest bands of the 2000’s is making their way to Vancouver! I’m of course talking about Las Vegas based band The Killers who were part of the resurgence of the Post Punk scene in North America during the mid-2000’s. It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t immediately start dancing as soon as they hear that classic intro riff to their 2004 hit “Mr. Brightside” off their first album “Hot Fuss”. The album turned them into international superstars over night with Brandon Flowers unique voice being heard on basically every modern rock station throughout the western world, day after day. They then followed up the album with the 2006 release “Sam’s Town” that once again blew the world away with its new wave inspired sound. They then came back with one more album in 2008 entitled “Day & Age” before taking a hiatus for a few years till they made their in 2012 with “Battle Born” that got lukewarm reviews.
Moving forward a few years the band is still kicking it and are back in Canada touring their newest album “Wonderful Wonderful” that came out earlier in the year. They are going to be playing at The Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Stadium tonight for a sold out show. If you don’t have tickets it looks like you are out of luck but you can always try and see if someone is selling their tickets last minute.
If You haven’t heard their new tune that we have been blasting on Evolution then make sure to check out Run For Cover! Enjoy!
