I went to their concert at MSG in NYC tonight it was great! They've really progressed as a live band - this is my third time seeing them in progressively bigger venues - first time was in a crowd of about 300 on the field of a minor league stadium in Staten Island in October 2005, second time was at 5,000 seat Theater at MSG in October 2006 (I also saw them at Live 8 but that was just one song). They've always been fun, which was their saving grace, but the other times they were a little bit of a hot mess - pacing was off, and Brandon not looking very comfortable. Big difference in both this time...pacing and flow were perfect, Brandon very at ease at last. They sound tighter musically too, everything was A-1 all around. Much better concert than Coldplay's, even though I like Viva La Vida better than Day and Age, I still don't get "are we human, or are we dancer?", hehe.

oh my gawd!
what a arse kicking show that was last nite! Wow.. I had front rail in front of Mark (the bassist). Waited outside the venue for 2 1/2 hrs.. piece of cake compared to U2. Haha.
Me and a friend had fun talking to the real cool security guards there the whole time which made time fly. Opening band, M83 (a french techno band) just didn't do it for me. It was like one long 30 min song (all the songs sounded the same). Killers came on around 9:15 or so. Opened with Spaceman which I just loved.. I got a set list and took some pics that I'll post tonite when I get home from work.

I will say this Brandon has truly become a great showman up there. He finally is comfortable, relaxed and having fun, talkin to the crowd. This was my 3rd time seeing them and this was an immediate impression I got last nite. He has always been kinda awkward, disconnected a bit from the audience in the past which I had always noticed before but now he is completely comfortable in his own skin.. This really made the show fun!

off to work.. will post more later.

woohooo! wtg girlie..

yes, I didn't like them. Not into techno european music. Like i said the songs sounded the same to me like one long song. She has a great voice tho. And they have no stage presence (that needs a lot of work).

uploading pics now.. fyi.. pics aren't that good. I still can't figure out how to get great pics from my camera.. so hit and miss for me. grr

I'm all for kitch and whatnot, but with that stage design and his wardrobe it looks like they're playing in some lounge next to the penny slots at The Tropicana . . . or maybe somewhere not even as nice as The Tropicana.
