On Aug. 4, The Killers will take the Lollapolooza stage alongside fellow big names Chance the Rapper, Lorde, Muse, Arcade Fire and many, many more. For those hoping to creep an early peak at the alt-Americana rockers potential setlist, however, the band announced today that it will play The Rave on Wednesday, Aug. 2, barely 48 hours before its major Lolla appearance.
The band – led by frontman Brandon Flowers – hit it big back in 2004 with its debut album, "Hot Fuss," featuring hits like "Mr. Brightside," "Somebody Told Me," "All These Things That I've Done" and more. Since then, The Killers have bounced around different branches of the alternative rock genre, from anthemic arena Americana (2005's "Sam's Town" and 2012's "Battle Born") to more playful dance-pop (2008's "Day & Age"), gathering seven Grammy nominations in the process.
The group's fifth album, "Wonderful Wonderful," is expected later this year, with its first single, "The Man," released just last week.
Tickets for the 8 p.m. Eagles Ballroom show – presented by FM 102/1 – will go on sale starting this Friday. For more information on the concert and tickets, visit The Rave's website.
In the meantime, we look forward to The Killers coming out their cage to see if they're doing just fine.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
