Concert Review: Brandon Flowers at The Depot

by Rebecca Frost
- Posted // 2010-11-18 - With the same fire and passion that leads The Killers, Brandon Flowers made his solo debut Wednesday with songs from his album, Flamingo, but left the usual glitz and glam at the door.

Show opener Fran Healy made no issue of befriending the audience. The Scottish musician joked, told stories, and played a few familiar songs from his band, Travis.

While Flowers was mostly show with little audience connection, it didn't detract from a stellar performance. The set began with a surprisingly mellow song, “On the Floor,” and lead right into the more familiar and energized song, “Crossfire.”

Before beginning “Welcome to the Fabulous Las Vegas,” Flowers did take the time to recognize his Utah roots, mentioning that while born in Henderson, NV, he spent his, “formative years in the Beehive State.”

The Killers did not go ignored; something the audience seemed to be looking forward to most. He paid tribute to his band with a blast from the past, the lesser known song “Losing Touch” off their most recent album Day & Age and wrapped up the show with an acoustic version of “When You Were Young” with a surprise appearance by fellow Killers band mate, drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. [corrected].

Get your facts right before writing a review, everyone knows that it was Ronnie who played guitar and sang with Brandon. If you read info on the band, you will know who they are...... by the way Dave is the one with the long curly hair ha ha ha

Just making a quick correction, for the encore song "When You Were Young" it was not Dave that joined him on stage, but Ronnie (the drummer).
