The Killers Live at Wembley

I saw The Killers tonight (22nd June 2013) at Wembley Stadium and let me tell you it was FUCKING AMAZING OH MY GOD

I’ve seen them before at Hard Rock Calling and they were incredible then, but tonight just completely blew me away

They opened with Enterlude then went into When We Were Young and ugh it was amazing

They even played some hidden treasures!! They played This River Is Wild (a personal favourite of mine, it got me through some hard times at school), Bling (Confession of a King) and Shadowplay!!

They then did a really awesome cover of I Think We’re Alone Now, and Brandon even mentioned the Girls Aloud cover which made me laugh, but I love this song anyway and it was totally fun and cheeky, it was great

The highlight of the night was the ‘Song for Wembley’, which had been written specifically for the night and had never been performed until tonight. He opened it by doing Freddie Mercury’s ‘day-ooo’ with the crowd, and then the song started off being about London and the stadium in general, then Brandon started singing/mentioning all the acts who have headlined the stadium before (e.g. Fleetwood Mac, Elton John, Guns N Roses, Take That, Oasis, Madonna, Muse etc). When he got to Green Day, the lyric was ‘Green Day… I said some shit - but that was the old me!’, and then a picture of baby Brandon all the way back from his guyliner days giving the middle finger came up on the screen and he got all bashful! And then when he mentioned George Michael, he sang ‘George Micheal - stay away from cars!’. Also another lovely part was when he was singing about some of the earlier bands, he said ‘you left us all too soon’, which got me a little bit. At the end he said all emotionally ‘you can add one more name to that list’ and a big Killers picture came up on screen :)

After mentioning the acts, he sang about how Mr Brightside first came out, and how everybody was convinced The Killers were from Sheffield or Camden, and were shocked when they found out they were from Las Vegas. He then sang about how England welcomed The Killers as if they were their own and how the ‘seed had been planted’ and how they have followed tradition ever since. They then sang random lines from some of their biggest songs, and oh my jesus, it was so magical.

There were other great bits too. During This River Is Wild, at the ‘little girl play’ line, Brandon just looked major pervily at the crowd and pulled on his trouser waistband then like randomly groped himself it was so fucking hot and perfect like oh my jesus what is this man trying to do to me

Another reason why this show was so great is that Brandon was constantly talking to the crowd. He was totally and completely engaged with us, in fact, he was one of us. At some points he was swearing which I quite liked because usually he has this holier-than-thou, good-mormon-boy image, so it was nice to see his cheeky side. Also the bit about the dancing boots, and when he was asking the crowd and then Dave, Ronnie and Mark if they were wearing their dancing boots, was so brilliant! I just loved it! Brandon was interacting with his bandmates, talking to them and talking about them to the audience (there was one beautiful moment during one of the songs where Brandon was holding Dave whilst he was singing and the latter was doing his thang on the guitar, you could just see the friendship, it was incredible), so all those people who say ‘oh, The Killers is all about Brandon Flowers nobody cares about the others’ u can all stfu right they’re all amazing

You could also see how much it meant to all of them -and Brandon as the frontman in particular - to be headlining such a prestigious and massive venue. Wembley can hold up to 90,000 people. That’s 38,000 more people than there are living in Greenland altogether!!! Think about it! Every time Brandon got the crowd to sing lyrics back to him, he just couldn’t keep the smile off his face, you could see how much it meant and how humbled he was by the experience. This success is more than well-deserved.

Overall it was just brilliant. Amazing. Incredible. Magical. Inspiring. Faultless. Without a doubt I would give them 10/10. I didn’t feel like somebody who was just at a concert watching a band. I felt like the band were apart of the crowd (almost literally when Brandon went down to the front for ages to hug/touch/hold people in the crowd!!), and that we were there and in this altogether. It was a privilege to be part of such a huge event and experience for the band. It was the day after Brandon’s birthday, and it had been exactly 10 years to the day since they had done their first ever live gig together. So it truly meant something and I don’t think I will ever get over it.

So, if I could say one thing to those four men, it would be a huge thankyou, for all the amazing music, the incredible shows, and the humble attitude and approach they have towards the business. Thankyou, Brandon, Dave, Mark and Ronnie. YOU ALL FUCKING RULE.

I know this isn’t about Brandon in particular, but as someone who was at the Wembley gig, this is the best review of it I’ve read so far. It was a fucking incredible night and I felt like a proud muma hen. My how they’ve grown ♥
