The Killers - Live at Royal Albert Hall (DVD + CD)

Just got back from BestBuy, where I picked up a copy for only $11.99 - what a steal!

2 hr, 40 min concert DVD, plus a 78-minute live album. Widescreen, 5.1 sound. Gonna blast the bejeezus out of this thing when I get home. Sorry next-door neighbors!

Anyone had a listen yet? I'm still peeling off the cellophane.

Forgot that came out today, will pick it up on Friday. I was going to grab the special edition of it, but it's just too much money.

Also, we've been talking about it in here: The Killers - Day And Age

Been watching it all evening - it's RIDICULOUSLY good. Sort of like their Rattle & Hum. Amazing to think that such a pop-oriented, radio-friendly, magazine-cover rock band hasn't had a single DVD until now, after their 4th album. Cool to think that the original newspaper ad that helped form the band sought musicians influenced by "U2"

I am waiting for my DVD to come in the mail, I'm going NUTS!!! I should have just bought it at a store... I'm a die-hard Killers fan, I love every single song they've ever written.
If I get it before the weekend (I should!), rest assured I won't get any homework done whatsoever Will be too busy watching.

I really enjoyed watching this.

Dustland Fairytale and Read My Mind really sound good live. Looks like it would've been a fun show to be at.

Makes me want to go to a Killers show now.

They are a great live band. Even if you don't like the albums much, their shows are amazing.

Still don't have my DVD

I was at the Rose Bowl show in the inner circle and had the time of my life, and yet I still have to agree with this. The Killers have almost out-U2'ed U2, if that makes any sense.

So far I think "For Reasons Unknown" is my favorite

I have to agree with this statement completely.

I saw them live and thought they were really good, and this was a while ago and I've heard they've become even better live over the past couple years.

But I'm so lukewarm on their albums. Everything after Hot Fuss is just , meh!, to me.

But I do love a good concert DVD. Maybe I'll slip it to Santa that I wouldn't mind this for Christmas.
