The band send off ’Hot Fuss’ at the Carling Weekend: Reading Festival…
THE KILLERS have said goodbye to debut album ’HOT FUSS’ during their main stage appearance at THE CARLING WEEKEND: READING FESTIVAL.
Playing just below the headliners today (August 26), the band admitted this will probably one of the last times they’ll play before a UK audience before they start work on their second album.
”The summer has been great,” singer Brandon Flowers told NME.COM. “But it’s almost over and ’Hot Fuss’ is almost over too. It’s a nice place to send the album off, this will be our last trip to England for this album, but we’ll be back!”
Leaving fans with a taste of the work ahead, The Killers played new song ’All The Pretty Faces’ which the band debuted at Glastonbury earlier this summer although ’For Reasons Unknown’ which Flowers hinted they might play did not materialise.
However the focus of the set was the emotional goodbye to their debut ’Hot Fuss’, with the Las Vegas band including ’Mr Brightside’, ’Somebody Told Me’ and ’All These Things That I’ve Done’ in their set – all of which triggered the now customary loud sing-a-longs from the audience.
”This has all been unbelievable,” declared Flowersof the summer. “Glastonbury, T In The Park and now finishing off at Reading and Leeds, it’s just kinda surreal.”
The band played the following set:
’Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine’
’Under The Gun’
’Smile Like You Mean It’
’Change Your Mind’
’Somebody Told Me’
’Andy You’re A Star’
’All The Pretty Faces’
‘Glamorous Indie Rock & Roll’
‘All These Things That I’ve Done’
