    Hopeful for the festival season :D


    LOL

    I guess we never discussed this one. As far as I recall, I think Bernard Sumner is Brandon's idol and I remember reading something about how excited Brandon was to appear on their latest album.

    The Killers have announced two UK stadium shows for 2018.

    Swansea, Liberty Stadium (June 23)
    Bolton, Macron Stadium (July 13)


    :brb:


    :giddy:





    Back in July, Flowers recalled meeting Sumner for the first time – revealing that it happened in a toilet at the NME Awards.

    “It was our first time going to the NME Awards, and we were starstruck,” Flowers said in an interview with Radio X. “It was an incredible experience for us. We were just happy to be there. I’m in the bathroom. I’m at the urinal. And Bernard Sumner, who’s one of my heroes, steps up next to me.”

    They must be missing you already @Ome for Christmas!


    Are you thinking of getting tickets? or maybe you've already seen enough of them to last a lifetime :D


    Thats an introduction neither will forget in a hurry, its as though they were fated to meet in that bathroom.

    I would love for The Killers and New Order to work together on something in the future.

    I found out last night they are in Glasgow too, I'm going to be really busy and stressed on the phone tomorrow.

    It has crossed my mind .....

    Just a couple of times (like every 5 seconds)
    Oh hell know, that's like giving up chocolate or the internet. :eck:
    And we know how fantastic it would sound too

    The very best of luck and I'm sure you'll succeed :)

    :lol:

    Wow, thats very serious.

    'Superheated' is just perfection and I still listen to this song (the whole album actually) at least once a week.

    I secured 3 tickets for the Scotland festival. :jump2:

    The other two stadium gigs open up at 9:30, I'm hoping to get VIP for Bolton.:shy:


    EDIT: I got both Swansea and Bolton and even managed to secure the VIP for Bolton.

    I can relax once more...

    Not yet, though I'm really hoping Alex Cameron might fit in somewhere.

    I enjoyed this :D not as good as The Killers (of course), but still good. That song has great music.



    You might already know this @Ome - I recently discovered that ’The Man’ samples ’Spirit Of The Boogie’ by Kool & The Gang

    New song @beyondexcited




    [Verse 1]
    Can't wipe the wind-blown smile from across my face
    It's just the old man in me
    Washing his truck at the Sinclair station

    In the land of the free
    His mother Adeline's family came on a ship
    Cut coal and planted a seed
    Down in them drift mines of Pennsylvania
    In the land of the free

    [Chorus]
    Land of the free, land of the free
    In the land of the free
    Land of the free, land of the free
    Land of the free, land of the free
    In the land of the free
    (I'm standing crying)

    [Verse 2]
    When I go out in my car, I don't think twice
    But if you're the wrong color skin (I'm standing crying)
    You grow up looking over both your shoulders
    In the land of the free
    We got more people locked up than the rest of the world
    Right here in red, white and blue
    Incarceration's become big business
    It's harvest time out on the avenue

    [Bridge]
    I'm standing crying, I'm standing crying
    So how many daughters, tell me how many sons
    Do we have to have to put in the ground before we just break down and face it
    We got a problem with guns
    In the land of the free
    Down at the border, they're gonna put up a wall
    Concrete and rebar steel beams (I'm standing crying)
    High enough to keep all those filthy hands off of our hopes and our dreams (I'm standing crying)
    People who just want the same things we do
    In the land of the free
