Victims have also remarked on the little touches Sam’s Town Hotel & Gambling Hall have undertaken for the weekend, including Killers-theme room key cards, playing Killers music and music videos throughout the hotel, and Killers-themed drink menus.

If you’re in Las Vegas for the event, feel free to share any pictures or videos with me on Twitter, Instagram or via email.

Once the festivities get underway, I will try and keep a running blog for the bus tour, dinner, and VIP performance if enough information is available.  Once the shows begin, I’ll try to keep a running update of the ‘Sam’s Town’ show.  In the meantime, I’ll try to aggregate the latest happening on Twitter.
