The Killers @ Horseshoe Casino (IN) – 8/8

Call me crazy, but I am excited for this show.  The Killers are coming to the Horseshoe Casino in Southern Indiana on August 8th as part of the Summer Concert Series they have in their big, outdoor amphitheater.  I was a huge Killers fan after Hot Fuss.  Then came Sam’s Town, and I didn’t fall in love with the album, but I could appreciate it for what it was – – a follow-up to a fantastic album.  I eagerly awaited the release of their third album, Day & Age, only to be disappointed (“are we human or are we dancer?”).  That said, I still find time to listen to Hot Fuss now and then, and have yet to see them live.  They played at The Palace back in September 2007, but I missed it.  The Horseshoe as a venue is fantastic.  They have a great set-up that looks huge, but feels small when you are there.  The sound is great and the backdrop is pretty cool too.    I’ve seen a couple shows there and have not been disappointed yet.  Bring a few extra bucks for brew and pocketful more if you want to stick around to gamble (although you won’t have a problem finding an ATM).  We’ve given away tix to shows at the Horseshoe before, so we will see what we can do for you for this one.  In the meantime, I’ll be dusting off Sam’s Town and Day & Age and give them another chance (Sawdust will stay on the shelf).

Tickets go on sale HERE on April 17th at 11am EST.  They will run you $35 bucks.

The Killers- Human

Via the Horshoe Casino page:

The Killers will join us on Saturday, August 8, 2009 at 7:30 p.m. as part of our Outdoor Summer Concert Series.

The Killers are touring in support of the band’s latest opus, Day & Age, which surfaced last fall. The Las Vegas-based group worked with Scottish electronic-music whiz Stuart Price (Madonna, Missy Elliot) on Day & Age, its third album and follow-up to 2006’s Sam’s Town (the band released Sawdust, a collection of studio outtakes and b-sides last year). Released in September, the album peaked at #6 on the Billboard 200 chart, and has sold almost a half-million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. Worldwide, the set has sold 1.6 million copies.

  1. awful live band. I hope they don’t disappoint you as much as they did me.

  2. Do you recommend bleacher seats or standing room only?

  3. I wasn’t a huge killers fan until I saw them live, they were FANTASTIC! I’m looking forward to this show! General admission is my favorite, they’re a great band to get up close to and have a good time.

  4. Does anyone know how to get backstage passes to see them?

  5. Awful live band ? What are you smokin ? Drove 7 hours to see them this past weekend . They were awesome .BTW I’m 53 so I know what I am talkin about !!!

  6. The show was great. Brandon Flowers really knows how to connect with the audience…you need to be slapped if you say their a horrible live band….are you nuts?

    This was my third time seeing them and will be back for more if they come back around.
