The Killers

The city of Las Vegas is divided over its most beloved rock act, the power-pop quartet The Killers, and the band’s 2012 release, Battle Born. “Musically, Battle Born attains a nice balance of fire and glory and nuance that previous Killers efforts (or at least the past two) inevitably toppled over in their hell-bent quest for significance,” wrote Smith Galtney for Las Vegas Weekly. Mike Prevatt, for Las Vegas CityLife, wrote, “The new album is little more than empty grandiosity and unimaginative ’80s retread, lacking the original tunesmanship and resonance of the band’s previous efforts.” No matter what the local critics say about the band’s fourth studio album, the devoted fanbase (more than 7 million on Facebook alone) will eat up anything that frontman Brandon Flowers, a BYU grad, spits out—and so will his adopted Utah crowd tonight. Tegan & Sara are also on the bill.
