Watch The Killers play tracks from ‘Sam’s Town’ for this first time in nearly a decade

The band are celebrating ten years of their second studio album with a couple of special shows

The Killers performed a number of tracks from their second studio album, ‘Sam’s Town’, last night (September 30) for the first time in nearly a decade.

Tomorrow (October 2) will be the tenth anniversary of the release of ‘Sam’s Town’, which followed the Las Vegas band’s breakthrough success with their debut album ‘Hot Fuss’ in 2004.

To celebrate the anniversary, The Killers are playing two shows at Sam’s Town Hotel And Gambling Hall, the Las Vegas casino that inspired the album’s name. As Stereogum reports, the first show took place last night and saw a much-changed setlist from the band to honour the album.

‘Sam’s Town’ track ‘Why Do I Keep Counting?’ was performed live for the first time since 2007, while ‘My List’ and ‘Exitlude’ received live renditions from the band for the first time since 2009.

See some fan-shot clips of the special intimate show below.
