The Killers have announced they will be heading back on the road with a stop at Little Caesars Arena on Saturday, October 8, 2022 at 7:30 p.m. to celebrate their Pressure Machine and Imploding The Mirage albums, along with their much-loved catalogue of global hits. 

The Killers will release their seventh studio album, entitled Pressure Machine, on Island Records on August 13, 2021.  The album was co-produced by the band, Shawn Everett, and Jonathan Rado (of Foxygen), all of whom worked together on The Killers’ critically-acclaimed album Imploding The Mirage, released last year.    

When the Covid-19 pandemic shut down the promotional run and worldwide tour for The Killers’ majestic, critically-acclaimed 2020 album Imploding the Mirage, “everything came to this grinding halt,” says frontman Brandon Flowers. “And it was the first time in a long time for me that I was faced with silence.  And out of that silence this record began to bloom, full of songs that would have otherwise been too quiet and drowned out by the noise of typical Killers records.”  Indeed, for the first time since 2004, the relentless momentum and pressures of being in a globally-renowned, stadium-shaking band stopped.  Enter Pressure Machine: a view into the everyday realities of a small American town with a stark, tough beauty, and The Killers’ most restrained and resonant album yet.

A video from Brandon about Pressure Machine can be seen now via Apple Music.    

A quieter, character-study-driven album, Pressure Machine lives squarely in Flowers’ hometown of Nephi, Utah, a close-knit community of 5300 people with no traffic lights, a rubber plant, wheat fields, and the West Hills.  Nephi is the place Flowers spent his formative years (10-16), saying “had it not been for advancements in the automotive industry, Nephi in the 90s could have been the 1950s.”  The album’s songs are based on the memories and stories of people that impacted him growing up, interspersed with commentary from current Nephi locals about their town.  “We were discussing [Brandon] moving to Nephi as a kid and being stuck in the middle of nowhere,” says the band’s drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. “And during Covid-19, it started to feel like we were all in the middle of nowhere.”  Concurs Flowers, “I discovered this grief that I hadn’t dealt with,” he says, “many memories of my time in Nephi are tender.  But the ones tied to fear or great sadness were emotionally charged.  I’ve got more understanding now than when we started the band, and hopefully I was able to do justice to these stories and these lives in this little town that I grew up in.” 

The resulting record is an aural document of growing up - and living - in the American Southwest, told from a myriad of perspectives.  For the first time in his life, Flowers had complete lyrics before a note of music was put to tape.  No stranger to inhabiting different characters in songs, on Pressure Machine he steps into the shoes of some of the people whose lives he watched unfold as a teen.  The album weaves the threads of Flowers’ signature lyricism throughout his career into a perfect whole culminating in the most elegant album The Killers have ever made.   

Through its characters and also its title, the album squares up to the unbending pressure of the American dream compounded by religious disenchantment.  A born optimist, moments of beauty inevitably shine out of the grief of Flowers's songs:  the healing arrival of summer, the first crop of hay, sweeter skies.  Pressure Machine’s stories detail the real life personal battles, overwhelming regrets, local tragedies, and the opioid epidemic that hit Flowers’ hometown, as well as every hometown in America.  Flowers sings about the choices people make, for better and for worse, and the consequences of those choices; the ones who were left behind, and the ones that can’t be forgotten.    

Pressure Machine’s album cover image was shot on the highway just outside Nephi, taken as photographer Wes Johnson passed a roadside inspirational display set up by a local Baptist church.  Johnson took dozens of incredible images of Flowers’ hometown throughout the early part of 2021, many of which are featured in the album’s packaging for the physical edition.

About The Killers

The Killers, an American rock band hailing from Las Vegas, Nevada, emerged in the early 2000s, swiftly ascending to become one of the most influential bands of the modern era. Formed in 2001, the band consists of Brandon Flowers (vocals, keyboards), Dave Keuning (guitar), Mark Stoermer (bass), and Ronnie Vannucci Jr. (drums). Their debut album, "Hot Fuss" (2004), was a groundbreaking release, featuring hits like "Mr. Brightside" and "Somebody Told Me," which blended elements of post-punk with a unique, synth-infused rock sound. The Killers' music is characterized by its blend of 80s-inspired synth-pop with a distinct rock sensibility, marked by Flowers' charismatic presence and poignant lyricism. Their songs often explore themes of love, nostalgia, and the human condition, set against the backdrop of their native Las Vegas. Following "Hot Fuss," the band released several critically acclaimed albums, including "Sam's Town" (2006) and "Day Age" (2008). Each album showcased the band's evolving sound and lyrical depth, with tracks like "When You Were Young" and "Human" becoming anthems of their era. The Killers' success is not just confined to their studio recordings; they are renowned for their electrifying live performances, where they captivate audiences with their dynamic energy and musical prowess. Their global appeal has made them one of the most successful rock bands of the 21st century, headlining major festivals and selling out arenas worldwide. Apart from their music, the band is known for their philanthropic efforts, lending their voice and influence to various causes, from humanitarian efforts to environmental advocacy. The journey of The Killers from a local Vegas band to global rock sensations underscores their musical ingenuity and commitment to evolving their sound and message.

Very few modern bands have a “Mr. Brightside.” Even fewer are able to whip it out in the first five minutes of a show and continue to entertain an arena for another 90 minutes. And even fewer are those who can hold their own in a three-song duet with Bruce Springsteen as he beams with excitement announcing their name to the crowd: “ THE KILLERS !”

Movies are dead wait, they’re back the delusional phase of hollywood’s frantic summer, nba draft 2024 livestream: how to watch the player selection event online, popular on variety.

While it was clear large swaths of the audience were not familiar with the Las Vegas band’s vastly underrated 2020 outing “Imploding the Mirage,” the Killers made a case for why they should be, opening the show with the explosive “My Own Soul’s Warning” and devoting much-deserved space to “Fire in Bone,” “Dying Breed” and “Caution.”

Midway through the set, the band went acoustic for “Runaway Horses,” with Flowers declaring that over the pandemic, the Killers had become a country band. Before playing the “Pressure Machine” tune, Flowers earnestly told the 20,000 city folk in the audience to “go get a beer if you don’t want to hear it.”

It’s hard not to be charmed by Flowers’ unfettered optimism and enthusiasm. He sings every song with a smile, stretching out the final singalong chorus of “Runaways” and then cheekily tucking Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me” into “Read My Mind.” At one point in the show, he quoted the “indestructible” Hellen Keller.

On some level, you have to buy into the Killers because, nowadays at least, it’s hard to find music as unapologetically anthemic without even the slightest hint of irony. Even the band’s corniest, most nonsensical lyrics (“We’re burning down the highway skyline / On the back of a hurricane that started turning when you were young”; “If you could see through the banner of the sun / Into eternity’s eyes like a vision reaching down to you”), paired with desert-rippling guitar riffs, roll off Flowers’ tongue like rock ‘n’ roll manifestos.

“Me and my friends have all been sweating bullets up here all night, because the Boss is here,” Flowers announced as he walked back onstage, barely able to contain his own excitement.

Before easing into their Springsteen collaboration “Dustland,” a reinvention of the band’s 2008 track “A Dustland Fairytale,” Flowers said, “This part of the night is usually reserved for me to have people put their phones up. And I tell us to think about where your light comes from.”

Then, turning to Springsteen, Flowers gushed, “It is a very unusual circumstance for me tonight because I get a lot of my light from you.”

The Killers and The Boss closed out the show on a bright note with “Born to Run,” with Flowers insisting Springsteen deliver the euphoric final verse: “The highway’s jammed with broken heroes on a last-chance power drive!” Then, sharing the microphone, the two of them — plus the entirety of Madison Square Garden — belted out the final chorus.

How to top that? Wisely, they didn’t try.

Entertainment | the killers deliver a killer at little caesars arena.

singer on stage

That’s tough to top, but seven days later Brandon Flowers and his Las Vegas troupe still managed to deliver an abundantly eventful night, nearly two hours filled with energy, exuberance and high spirits in what was the Killers’ biggest show to date in the metro area.

“We’ve been coming to Detroit since probably 2003,” Flowers noted at the action-packed 23-song concert’s halfway point. (It was actually 2004, at the Shelter and then Saint Andrew’s Hall.) “The bars to clubs, theaters, Masonic lodges. Here we are in this beautiful arena. It’s wild to have everyone grow with us.”

Little Caesars was, in fact, nearly full the show, which Flowers also noted was the Killers’ last Saturday date in North America on its latest tour. “We’re gonna play like it’s our last Saturday night on Earth!” he promised and just about made good on that with a whiplash fervor and a musical mix that had one foot in 90s British New Wave and the other in the Americana arena rock of Springsteen, Bon Jovi and Bryan Adams (ok, he’s Canadian, but still…).

“It’s a super spreader event!” Flowers proclaimed early on. “We’re spreading peace! We’re spreading love! We’re spreading rock ‘n’ roll! Come get some!”

There was indeed plenty to be had, and a needle drop at any point of the Killers show yielded a highlight — up to and including a, well, killer opening set by Johnny Marr, the former Smiths guitarist whose quartet lit up Little Caesars with his own material, including “Armatopia” and “Easy Money” and the Britpop history of his old band (“Panic,” “There is a Light That Never Goes Out,” “How Soon is Now?” and the “Manchester disco” of his other band Electronica’s “Getting Away With It.”

The Killers, meanwhile, didn’t waste any time getting to the Big Moments, opening the show with “My Own Soul’s Warning” and the first of three major confetti blasts into the general admission arena floor. The group — which featured as many as eight musicians on stage behind Flowers — deftly balanced old favorites with recent material and offering a full-career sampling weighted, not surprisingly, in favor of its platinum-and-better first two albums and oddly playing just one track (“Cody”) from its latest release 2021’s “Pressure Machine” — with the new single, “Boy,” also in the mix.

You’d have been hard-pressed to find any complaints, though, as the group pounded through anthemic favorites such as “When We Were Young,” “Somebody Told Me” “Human,” “Read My Mind,” “Spaceman” and the singalong “All These Things I’ve Done,” with the charismatic Flowers ping-ponging around the stage, occasionally stopping to play at his mid-stage bank of keyboards. He and guitarist Ted Sablay also gave Motown a musical shout-out with a bit of the Temptations’ “My Girl.

For “For Reasons Unknown,” Flowers brought a well-prepared fan from Grand Rapids named Scotty Rock on stage to play drums, with the frontman stropping on a bass while drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. switched to guitar. And Flowers brought “Dying Breed” to a halt in order to call out a fan in the pit who had punched another, ordering that the offender be removed and not starting the song again until he was assured the attack victim was alright.

During the encores Flowers honored a sign request for “Miss Atomic Bomb” by a group of “next generation Killer fans” sitting at the side of the stage, and while there was no Springsteen in sight Marr joined the Killers to wrap the show with the Smiths’ hit “This Charming Man” and the headliners’ “Mr. Brightside,” the latter’s choruses sung almost entirely by the Little Caesars crowd.

It was, ultimately, a night that lived up to the occasion, a mark of how far the Killers have come since that first basement bar show in Detroit — and how ready Flowers and his group was for the arena ranks.

The Killers at Co-Op Live, Manchester review: Scaled back but impeccable

R oll up, roll up and welcome, in this so-called summer, to the era of music’s circus maximus. Taylor Swift , Foo Fighters and Bruce Springsteen are abroad in the land, playing three-hour-plus outdoor sets in UK stadia. For America’s guitar-wielding super-elite in 2024, more is more, come rain or shine or more rain.

It’s refreshing, then, that for their Rebel Diamonds tour – named after last year’s Greatest Hits and celebrating 20 years since the release of debut album Hot Fuss – The Killers are “retreating” indoors. After hitting the UK’s windiest football parks for 2022’s previous tour on this side of the Atlantic, they’re playing arenas here and in Ireland. That’s 16 times, mind, with the UK leg kicking off with four nights here at Manchester’s new, 23,000-capacity giant grey box.

Still, it’s ironic as well as surprising that The Killers are (relatively) scaling back. The Las Vegas band, led by fame-craving Brandon Flowers , have always been big-is-best kinda guys, their eyes long on the glittery prize, their choruses as sky-high and mile-wide as their ambition.

But here they are, in venues with roofs and keeping their 21-song set on the right side of two hours. Not that anything feels pinched. In Manchester, on a jutting, pointed stage, rimmed by glowing jewels and crowned by “Rebel Diamonds” picked out in retro Vegas neon font, the band were in roaring form from the off. The Springsteen-goes-New Wave “Read My Mind” was an early showcase for Dave Keuning, the big-haired, bare-chested axeman back onstage after a lengthy sabbatical and busting exultant moves on his trapezoidal guitar.

He was more than matched in the Rock Star shape-throwing by an ageless 42-year-old Flowers, resplendent in shiny suit and shinier teeth. On a pummelling “Somebody Told Me”, the first of multiple huge singalongs, Flowers posed like a boxing champ. The opening one-two-three punch was completed by the pacey but slight synth bop of “Spaceman”, before the frontman revisited the casino bell-hop he once was: “My name is Brandon Flowers and I’ll be your host this evening… Find everything you needed?”

James' hometown gig was pure euphoria

First-album bangers “Jenny Was a Friend of Mine” and “Smile Like You Mean It” were bracing reminders of The Killers’ OG USP as New Order with a desert suntan. But it was the arms-aloft, wide-scale heartland Americana of “All These Things That I’ve Done” and “When You Were Young” that really ignited the vast standing area in Europe’s biggest indoor venue.

Come the encore, underwhelming 2022 single “Boy” – think: Pet Shop Toddlers – was trotted out. But it did what it came to do, teeing up a carousing cover of “A Little Respect”, a smart bit of set-listing owning the fact that “Boy” owes its synth refrain to Erasure’s deathless 1988 smash.

And then finally, of course, was the song recently anointed the UK’s biggest ever song never to top the charts, the 21-year-old “Mr. Brightside” . Cue the oblivious abandon of an arena-scale wedding disco. As Flowers had said earlier in the set: “We are The Killers, and we’re in the service industry.” In Manchester, that service was nigh impeccable.

Post Malone gives his all while singing and playing acoustic guitar.

Post Malone is pre-tour.

The pop-rap icon turned country star announced his 2024 ‘F-1 Trillion Tour’ in late June and tickets officially became available for all dates on Monday, July 1.

At all arena, stadium and amphitheater shows, the 28-year-old has promised to deliver “a collection of country songs” featuring backing band The Fools For You in support of his forthcoming album that shares a name with the tour, due out Aug. 16.

“I love y’all so very much and I’m so excited to get out and play new music for you,” he noted in a press release.

Post Malone 2024 festival appearances

Malone has become a bit of a festival staple over the past few years.

Here’s where he’ll be taking his talents this summer along with essential information about each fest including venues and fellow headliners.

Post Malone set list

On June 14, Post performed at Manchester, TN’s Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. According to  Set List FM , here’s what he took to the stage that evening (along with special guest  Billy Strings  who joined him for a pair of songs mid-set):

01.) “Better Now”

02.) “Wow.” 03.) “Zack and Codeine” 04.) “Psycho” 05.) “Goodbyes” 06.) “I Like You (A Happier Song)” 07.) “Jonestown (Interlude)” 08.) “Take What You Want” 09.) “Over Now” 10.) “rockstar” (with Billy Strings) 11.) “Stay” (with Billy Strings) 12.) “I Fall Apart” 13.) “Wrapped Around Your Finger” 14.) “Circles” 15.) “Too Young” 16.) “White Iverson” 17.) “Congratulations”

18.) “Broken Whiskey Glass” 19.) “Sunflower” 20.) “I Had Some Help” 21.) “Chemical”

Post Malone new music

Ahead of the release of his sixth studio album, “F-1 Trillion,” Post Malone has released a pair of country-fried singles with a few of the biggest names in honky tonk.

First up, he dropped “I Had Some Help” featuring Morgan Wallen. Malone’s urgent vocals separate the breakup track from your standard country tune; this one is anthemic and ready for crossover radio play.

Most recently, Posty teamed up with Blake Shelton for “Pour Me A Drink,” an earnest ode to alcohol that wouldn’t sound out of place in any major country star’s oeuvre.

If you want to hear the pair of ditties, you can listen to them  here .

According to  Consequence , “Post Malone previously made his live debut as a country musician at the 2024 Stagecoach Music Festival, where he performed covers of songs by Brad Paisley, Tyler Childers, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, George Strait, Tim McGraw, and more.”

"He nicked my pig and killed it, but gave me enough bacon to live on for four years. He kept my kids in school and me in Seaview [Wallinger's recording studio], and for that I thank him."
