Did two nights of The Killers at the O2 this week. Their final 2 shows of the tour. Apparently we are verging on seeing them 20 times. Nothing is probably going to beat the set at Glastonbury this year for atmosphere. Lets face it the O2 is going to struggle a bit there.
I was up in the gods by the stage on both occasions - these seats were available for pre-sale to fans. My friend who came on the Monday told me as we were heading up the 2nd set of escalators that she has vertigo. Good to know. The seats on the lower level were for VIP (i.e. pay double). I’m getting a bit fed up with this happening at gigs.
Thankfully they mixed things up on both nights so it wasn’t the same set. On the Tuesday we got a duet with Bernard Sumner on bizarre love triangle. It felt a little bit strained. But when they played Mr Brightside watching the 20,000 people all move at the same time from up in the gods was pretty special.
Brandon doesn’t chat much on stage but he did on Tuesday and spoke about how he used to be a bell boy thinking about songs and where the inspiration for All these things that I’ve done came from.
