The Killers Cover Muse, Smashing Pumpkins in Storming Lollapalooza Set
The Killers overran the Lollapalooza Grant Park main stage during their headlining performance tonight in Chicago, leaving the crowd chanting the iconic refrain “I’ve got soul but I’m not a soldier” before retaking the stage for ‘This is Your Life’, ‘Shot at the Night’ and the one-two knockout punch of ‘When You Were Young’ and ‘Mr. Brightside’ to conclude their set when Flowers ordered Keuning to ‘oblige’ the crowd with ‘Mr. Brightside’.
The Killers appeared to solidify their hold on the crowd during ‘Spaceman’ and proceeded to keep a firm but energetic grip until the end of their set. The Lollapalooza crowd was often heard during their performance, signifying the devoted and revenant atmosphere of the crowd.
Of note for most Victims, The Killers covered ‘Starlight’ by Muse and ‘Disarm’ by Smashing Pumpkins.
I would expect multiple videos of ‘Starlight’ to surface soon as The Killers’ set was livestreamed and I will post those as they are uploaded to YouTube.
I will also aggregate any reviews of their performance as they are uploaded throughout tomorrow.
