The crowd were buzzing with electricity whilst waiting for The Killers to take to the stage on Saturday night.

You could feel the excitement building in the air. For many (myself included) The Killers are one of most iconic bands of the early noughties with so many recognisable hit songs.

The band formed in 2001 and their debut album ‘Hot Fuss’ in 2004 was a huge success with songs such as ‘Mr Brightside’ and ‘Smile Like You Mean It’ becoming classic pop-rock anthems.

Since then the band has gone on to release another four albums, the most recent in 2017, ‘Wonderful, Wonderful.’

The band played a number of hits from this album as well as songs we’d all been waiting for such as ‘When You Were Young,’ Human’ ’Mr Brightside’ and ‘Somebody Told Me.’

Charming front man Brandon Flowers made sure the crowd loved every minute. He certainly knows how to work the stage, keeping us captivated until the end. Everyone was singing a long throughout, the atmosphere lively and vibrant – just what you want from a festival headliner.
