The Killers. Birmingham NEC, October 31st 2012

4 Nov

Ooh IT WAS FANTASTIC! I knew it would be but it was even better than I expected. Also, three songs out of my top five made it into the set-list which made me very happy! It was quite a simple show, no extravagant sets, just lots and lots of songs. There was a nice range of old and new, known and lesser known.

The show started with an old video made by the Killers called Zombie Hands and then came my NUMBER 1- first!!


Followed by;

Jenny was a friend of mine

Somebody told me

The way it was


Flesh and Bone

Bling (confessions of a King)

Miss Atomic Bomb


Here with Me

For reasons unknown

From here on out

A matter of time

A dustland fairytale

Read my mind


Mr Brightside

When you were young


Smile like you mean it

All these things that I’ve  done


Although not included in my top five, Smile Like you mean it, Mr Brightside and When you were young were definitely amongst my favourites on the night and they seem to me to be songs best enjoyed live (and loud!) Obviously, Bones, Spaceman and Here with me were also completely fantastic. Here are a couple of pictures from the night…


Here with me…


Exciting delivery

Today, I arrived home after a VERY long day to some very exciting post!


I am listening to it as I type, my current favourites are Runaways, Here With Me and Deadlines and Commitments which has some beautiful lyrics…

If you should fall upon hard times
If you should lose your way
There is a place
Here in this house
That you can stay

As you can see, the album also comes complete with some Zoolander-worthy pouting which is always entertaining 🙂


Beyond excited!

This afternoon, I was awoken from dozing (it’s been a tiring week) by a call from my lovely friend.

We have been talking, together and separately (to anyone who will listen) of our wishes that The Killers will come to the UK on tour soon…and she is so very clever that she signed up to be emailed when that day finally came.

Anyway, today was the the day! After much squealing with excitement down the phone, the tickets were booked and we will be heading to Birmingham in less than 8 weeks…I cannot wait!

Also, Brandon Flowers is very considerate to have planned this leg of the tour in our half term holiday…yipee!

So for fellow Killers lovers out there…
