The Killers triumphed at Wembley Stadium last night (June 22nd) for the biggest extravaganza of their already stratospheric career. And what a gig it was – this was a trailblazing monster of a spectacular stadium gig; confident, captivating and also with a dash of magic.
The band blitzed through a 23-song career spanning set. Their monolithic hit When You Were Young was played as the second song of the set to a rapturous reception. The band also lavished upon the crowd a one time only song, written especially for this gig, entitled Wembley Song. This unforgettable moment was a sensational tribute to the history of Wembley, and England. Frontman Brandon Flowers even whipped up the crowd into a frenzy with some Freddie Mercury-style “Day-oh’s”! The Killers also played classics Smile Like You Mean It, Human and a epic extended version of fan favourite All These Things That I’ve Done. They then closed the night off during their encore to the ultimate gig-closer: Mr Brightside.
From the outstanding lighting to a crowd completely spellbound by the performers – the gig was flawless from start to finish. The Killers delivered a magnificent stadium gig that is sure to go down in Wembley history.
