The Killers make
one-off festival appearance
The band take studio
break to play Miami bash
The Killers made a
rare trip from the studio to a play an American festival yesterday
The Las Vegas band are
currently conducting sessions for their second album, but made the
one-off appearance at the Ultra
Music Festival in Miami.
Performing at the event which is part of America's
Winter Music Conference, The
Killers took to the Bicentennial
Park stage with frontman
Brandon Flowers unexpectedly resembling Travis'
Fran Healy by sporting a
cropped studio beard and blue army coat.
Playing mainly songs from debut 'Hot
introduced 'Somebody Told Me'
as "a real firecracker", before playing a selection from the album
plus b-side 'Under The Gun'.
The Killers played:
'Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine'
'Under the Gun'
'Smile Like You Mean It'
'All These Things That I've Done'
'Glamorous Indie Rock & Roll'
'Andy, You're A Star'
'Change Your Mine'
'Somebody Told Me'
Though the group didn't play any of the songs they have been working
on in their Las Vegas studio
with producers Flood and
Flowers tempered any
disappointment telling the crowd: "One good thing about music, when
it kills you, you feel no pain".
Though primarily led by dance acts, earlier the
Ultra Music Festival
witnessed a short set from Hard-Fi while The Prodigy were also due
The Killers now return to their studio, with their second album
currently due for release this autumn.
