I went to see The Killers last night in Richmond, VA...INCREDIBLE show.

And here is something that blew my mind... we were waiting for them to come on and the techs showed up to do soundcheck/put down setlists/etc. I thought I noticed a familiar face...sure enough it was Adam's bass tech Stuart Morgan handling Mark Stoermer's equipment!! He was even wearing a U2 360 Crew shirt. And then he had to soundcheck a guitar so he picked it up and started playing the riff from Desire!! I have no idea what he was doing there, it definitely took me by surprise

Richmond show was just great! The energy coming off the band especially Brandon and Ronnie was indescribable. They clearly were so happy to be back. . Got to the venue some time after 12. Only about 15 people in front of me. Met some nice people in line. Was hot as hell at times. Our hotel was 2 blocks away from the venue so we could go back and forth to cool off. Soooo, when we checked in and went to our hotel room we noticed two tour buses below us on the street and we thought hmm the band's or crew. At some point during the day I went back to the hotel to take back my umbrella and as I got to the inner hotel door to the lobby (you have to use ur key to enter) there were people just about to go in and one of them were one of the staff from the venue. Went thru the door with them turned to my right and there is Dave Keuning! I said hi Dave and that I was excited about the show and them playing a small venue. He looked shocked that I noticed him and so was I so I didn't ask for a pic and didn't have anything for him to sign. But that was so bizarre and cool. One thing I have always noticed about him is that he NEVER smiles even when I was talking to him.
So the venue split up the GA line into three lines alphabetically (A-G, H-N, and O-Z). Luckily I was the first in the O-Z line. We got in pretty quick and ended up center rail. And as time went I noticed that the tech for mark looked so familiar , I turned to my friend Julie and said that's Stuart Morgan! So I yelled Stuart how are ya and he smiled I asked how was Adam? And he said good. He was clearly happy that we noticed him. How could we not and to confirm he was wearing a 360 shirt. Ha. Pretty sure he recognized us from the many U2 shows we were at and on rail. After the show he gave us the set list. So cool.

Show as I said was great. Loved the new songs! Crowd was so into it. Lots of singing with the crowd taking over at times. I can't wait for the full tour so I can see them again! Btw it was so cool hearing old and songs from the last album. I haven't listened to them in a while and when songs like Somebody, spaceman and dust land fairytale. I had huge goosebumps!

I will post some pics later.

Seriously? Pretty cool if that's the case!

My initial thoughts on Runaways is "meh", but Miss Atomic Bomb sounded like it had potential. We shall see.

I spoke with Stuart and he gave my friend the set list. I basically squealed when I saw him come out from behind the stage to start tuning the bass guitars. It was so damn cool.

When he sound checked Desire he got some screams from me and smiled at us.

Maybe this thread should be re-named?

Looking forward to a proper tour.
