The Killers at The Palace, Melbourne

The Killers are in my top 3 bands... I love them, their music, Brandon's voice and of course his beautiful face... I have seen them 4 times and each time they absolutely bring it...

Hearing that they were playing Big Day Out did not work for me, but Geri told me that there was a side show, at Palace, this seemed impossible! The Palace is a tiny club venue, there weren't going to be many tickets, chances were I wouldn't be going... So I started to research, joined the Killers fan club, The Victims, and got access to the presale! Securing 3 tickets to this show, I was over the moon!

The club was packed, I was regretting showing up 30 mins before they started, but we headed to the balcony and ended up with a fantastic view! They were so close, the sound was so good, I really couldn't ask for more! The track selection always fails to completely satisfy me, a few less awesome tracks in there and they didn't play Bones at all!!! I love Brandon's charisma, when he looks into your general area it feels like he is looking into your soul, his voice is flawless and I do love the little stories he tells... After an hour and a half of ecstatic joy it was over, I sang his songs loudly the whole drive home and was far too excited to sleep... An amazing night! Felt incredibly lucky to experience these boys in such an intimate venue..

I found your blog when searching for reviews of last night's gig....I was there too and wasn't it sensational?!!!! It was my first time seeing them live and I was blown away. Love them to bits - even more now if that is possible. Thanks for posting some pics, we didn't end up taking any.
