The Killers announce Irish dates
They're Belfast and Dublin-bound early next year...
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 15 Oct 2012
Following a whopper performance at this summer's Electric Picnic, US four-piece The Killers have confirmed two Irish dates. They'll play Belfast's Odyssey Arena on February 21, and the O2, Dublin (22), next year.
The Nevada act was formed by Brandon Flowers in 2001 and released their critically-acclaimed debut Hot Fuss in 2004. During a hiatus, lead singer Flowers went solo, the fruit of which was Flamingo in 2010.
Tickets for both shows go on sale this Friday, October 19, priced £45/48 (Odyssey), and €49.05/51.65.

Sam’s Town suggests that the newly face-fuzzed Brandon Flowers has contracted a serious dose of Bruce-llosis (a quick scan of the album’s titles yields a number of Boss buzzwords: “river”, “town”, “Jonny”, “wild”). No bad thing necessarily, but any rock band without the E-Streeters’ skill or Springsteen’s Steinbeckian grasp of American history should beware of straying across the wrong side of the New Jersey tracks and ending up in Bon Jovi-ville.
2006-10-16 - REVIEW
Sam’s Town consistently grandstands to the bleachers, makes cheap plays for the listener’s emotions and foolhardily flaunts with the conventions of good taste. Just like a great rock ‘n’ roll record should.
2006-10-05 - REVIEW
Their debut Hot Fuss sold over 4 million copies and in the process set The Killers up as one of the brightest young hopes of the modern era. On the eve of the release of their second album Sam’s Town, the band look like settling for nothing less than U2-sized supremacy. Now, if only Brandon Flowers would shave off that, ahem, controversial face fuzz.

2006-09-06 - News
Given that The Killers’ opening string of near classic singles, ‘When You Were Young’ is a bit of a shock at first, being apparently devoid of any kind of hook. Give it a few listens however, and its subtle charms start to reveal themselves. They haven’t messed with the format too much, but there is a noticeable toughening up of the sound and an almost Springsteen-esque epic rock feel. Not the best record of the fortnight, but certainly the biggest and potentially most intriguing.
