CONTEST: Win Tickets to See THE KILLERS at Horeshoe Casino – 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).


You can get Tickets  HERE . 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. Summer Lovin’ from Grease

  2. CREED!

  3. Hanson :)

    Mmm bop, ba duba dop
    Ba du bop, ba duba dop

  4. No Doubt. Tragic Kingdom is such a catchy album that I almost always end up singing along to Just a Girl whenever I listen to it. Which is usually in my car. Which usually leads to embarrassment.

  5. Here goes my credibility…if I ever had any.

    Wham- Make It Big (yes, George Michael was in Wham)

    My sister and I pooled our bi-weekly allowances as 5 and 7 year olds and bought this record on vinyl when it came out in 1984. We bought it at a K-Mart in Highview, which is no longer there. I wore out the first few grooves of “Careless Whisper” from trying to find it with the needle over and over on our denim-covered portable suitcase record player with the built-in speakers. It was fantastic.

    I still have the record and I think I’ll go hear “Careless Whisper” again right now for old time’s sake.

    I don’t really want the tickets, I’ll be on vacation. If I win, give them to Theo R. Picturing a dude (I assume Theo’s male?) singing “Just a Girl,” and seriously digging the song, gives me a chuckle. He deserves it.

  6. Sweet, sweet Christ. Only for Killers tickets would I ever admit this but… guilty pleasure would have to be My Chemical Romance. As a 25 year old heterosexual male i cannot understand the tight jeans, eyeliner, over the top theatrics of the (dare i classify them as) emo scene. However, I find myself listening to “Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge” and “The Black Parade” over and over while I sing every lyric with teenage angst. Slap some eyeliner on me. My secret is out.

  7. I guess my version would be “Stick Shifts and Safety Belts” by Cake – such a silly song, but so fun to blast on the stereo and sing to.

    Also notably the one song by Cake that they did NOT play at their concert at Horseshoe Casino last summer!

  8. Taking Back Sunday


  9. Blink-182!!!

    What’s my age again?

  10. There’s nothin’ like a little Air Supply after an awful break up.

    “I’m all outta love…”

  11. Winds of change by the scorpions. this song is directly tied to the fall of the berlin wall. Best song with a whistle in the background. This song changed peoples lives, and prompted the end of the cold war. Someone beat this. I am who I am…

  12. My guilty pleasure is Rock Star by Nickelback. I hate the band so much, but song is too catchy. :/

  13. Flock of Seagulls, anyone? just kidding…

    Dumb and Dumber: The Soundtrack

    dl “Mary Moon” and you will be hooked… maybe

  14. Night Ranger- Sister Christian
    You’re motoring, baby!!!

  15. The Killers for god sake. We are dancer!

  16. OK……. I’ve only told a few people this…… “Africa” by Toto. It gives me chills. For real.. don’t laugh.

  17. I will come out….

    and admit…..

    I like…..


  18. Does Green Day count? They’ve got credibility, right? I mean, their songs have a message

    Gotta hand it to you Nick, you’ve figured out a way to get dozens of us to publicly humiliate ourselves!

  19. My guilty pleasure would have to be Maroon 5! Even though Adam Levine sounds like he’s had his balls chopped off (his voice is so high!) I can’t help but dance around when one of their songs is on!!
