The Killers Live On 'David Letterman' - With A Little Help From A Massive Orchestra

By NME Blog

Posted on 12 May 09


The Killers have pulled off some pretty stunning, big-ticket TV performances since new album 'Day & Age' came out.

'Human' at the MTV Europe Awards springs to mind - but this orchestra-augmented performance of current US single 'A Dustland Fairytale' is even better, propelled by a billowing, epic arrangement that meshes well with the song's big-country, open-road Springsteen-isms (is there a more 'Born To Run'-summoning image than "slick chrome American prince"?)

Nice bit of harp in there, too...
