Last night I went to see The Killers at the Hollywood Bowl. My father-in-law got us amazing seats, right in the center on the lower level. I had to go to dinner with a client at work, so I missed the opening act, The Psychedelic Furs. But, just like when I saw Green Day a few years ago, I got to my seat just as The Killers started. They opened with Human, from Day & Age, and then played just about all their hits.
Towards the end of the show, Brandon sang a few bars from the Elvis hit Fools Rush In before launching into Read My Mind, which was way cool. After the encore break Jimmy Kimmel ran onto the stage and grabbed the microphone to interrupt the band, mocking Kanye West, to say that The Psychedelic Furs was a great opening act. Then the Furs came on stage and both bands performed a sick rendition of Pretty in Pink. They closed with a massive performance of When You Were Young, complete with fireworks and confetti cannons that showered the audience.
It was seriously one of the best concerts I’ve seen since moving to LA.
