I thought it was just a couple of songs that got missed, not the whole thing - at least that's what Brandon said at the show...

Speaking of which, I was at the Paradise tonight and The Killers were fabulous! I thought they were in top form already, and it's still very early on. They seemed very spirited as well. Amazing how much Brandon has grown as a front man since I first saw them seven years ago.

Originally was way up there near the last few rows of the theater in the 3rd mezzanine, but 20 minutes into the show a guy with a lot of wristbands came around, and I got upgraded to the pit! I don't think that's ever happened to me before, it was great!

Do you get anything else from joining the Victims besides the pre-sale code? This package deal they're offering is tempting, but a pre-sale code is a onetime only thing pretty much, ya'know?

So it seems like Battle Born isn't for someone who only thinks Hot Fuss is decent? I'll skip this one I think.

The Killers battle U2's shadow | News.com.au

Quote:
"In a way, every band since The Joshua Tree lives in the shadow of that record," Flowers says. "I literally live in the shadow of joshua trees. I'm reminded every f---ing day of that album, I drive past those trees every single day. I probably think about The Joshua Tree every day when I see them. I don't know that it's good for me. It's a little bit depressing."

Apparently the code is good for a year. Not sure what else you get.

I'm a victim and there is no presale code. I didn't buy the bundle either. I think they grandfathered me in while the site was down (was a member before) and per the site its a lifetime membership. You just have to be logged in as a member.

I just got 6 GAs (family and friends) to their show on Dec 18th this morning!

I mean, U2's fanclub comes with benefits besides the presale code (even if they're laughable), so I was just wondering.


I will, however, in all likelihood be passing this gig up. It just occurred to me it's the same day I'm thinking of going to Jamaica.

Album grew quickly on me.

Trying to take the whole family to Chicago.

Anyone care to help a brother with some presale codes?

PM me if you can or could or would.

thanks in advance!!!

OK, looks like we'll be home on the 21st after all...but...did I just waste a ton of money? I see nothing about a pre-sale for Chicago for The Victims. Just a "radio pre-sale" whatever that is...
