Live Blog: The Killers’ VIP Performance

I’ll keep this post updated with the latest information on The Killers first VIP performance of the weekend.

Earlier, The Killers arrived at Sam’s Town Hotel & Gambling Hall and went up to the roof to take a couple of pictures.

According to early reports, the following tracks have been played:

  • Semi-acoustic version of ‘Smile Like You Mean It’
  • Semi-acoustic version of ‘Change Your Mind’

I can’t believe they did “Smile Like You Mean It.” It’s been too long.

I’m glad I didn’t go. I would have died of happiness.

In case the YouTube video is taken down.
I’m not taking any fucking chances.

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.

Ronnie Vannucci Looks Back on ‘Sam’s Town’ With DIY, DIY Looks Back on ‘Sam’s Town’

DIY has published two pieces looking back on The Killers’ ‘Sam’s Town’.

First, Ronnie Vannucci looks back on ‘Sam’s Town’ with DIY and talks about the recording process and reception ‘Sam’s Town’ initially received.

In any case, The Killers had the last laugh. Brandon flourished as a frontman during the touring of ‘Sam’s Town’ (“I think that’s where he sort of caught fire first” Ronnie suggests), a Glastonbury headline slot followed the next year, and they became one of the biggest bands in the world. Their next album ‘Day & Age’ – which saw them “writing songs to a calypso beat” - was further proof of their willingness to challenge expectations.

Second, DIY briefly looks back on ‘Sam’s Town’ in a separate piece.

Granted, ‘Sam’s Town’ was an album which split critics and fans alike, many finding their transformation too contrived. Yet, ten years on, equipped with the gift of hindsight, it was simply another brilliant chapter in The Killers’ huge career, and yet more proof that they’ve always possessed the knack for striking gold.
