Brandon Flowers and co deliver solid set in the desert

The Killers closed out the second day of the Coachella Festival (April 18) with their first headlining slot at the desert festival.

Kicking off their 90-minute set on the main stage at around 10:30, the band launched into ‘Human’, the first single off their most recent album ‘Day And Age’.

Dressed sharply in a stylish black jacket with sparkling tassels, frontman Brandon Flowers commanded the massive crowd with his charismatic stage presence.

“Has anyone ever been in love?” he asked the massive crowd of thousands before launching into ‘This Is Your Life’, and they cheered back in response.

The Las Vegas rockers played a handful of tracks from their new album as well as crowd-pleasing hits including ‘Somebody Told Me’ and ‘Mr Brightside’, keeping alive the dance party atmosphere started by MIA during her set just before The Killers took the stage.
