The stage for those pictures seems a lot different. I'm guessing that has something to do with the fact that it was Edgefest.

I was hoping to catch them this time around, but I don't feel like driving 3+ hours down to Atlantic City. I'm not convinced I could get out of town without playing poker, either

Killers in Nash Vegas! The Ryman!

I have decent balcony seats. Will be reviewing the show.

Just went to the Killers board from their mainpage. Hadn't been in a bit and needed some help getting excited about this show.

Well, two things made me smile.

First, the opening act is this cultish Beatles cover band from Tokyo. Silver Beats. Dorky and cute and perfect for the kids and their moms/dads in attendance on Monday.

Second, the setlist is in fact longer for this leg!! Wooohooo.

I am now getting that anticipation thang!

Just a word of advice, don't leave after the first encore, when they do the big finish. Almost the entire USF Sundome crowd got up to leave thinking it was over (including myself , I'm usually good at predicting when a show is really over, but The Killers faked me out good last night ). They came out a did a little something after that. Luckily I wasn't out of the arena yet .

I'd say what songs they were, but I didn't know if people were trying to keep spoiler free re: the setlist .

All in all, good show. I think Brandon Flowers has gotten better at being a showman (not that he was bad before, but he seemed to move around more that the last time I saw them when Hot Fuss came out).

They had two opening acts. The first was Howling Bells (seriously, that's their name) from Australia. Not bad, kind of boring but okay. The next band was The Rapture from New York. I really liked them for about the first 30 minutes they played. They had a guy who played cow bell! That amused me to no end . But he also played the keyboard and the saxaphone (really, how sad would it be just to be "the guy who plays cowbell" ? ). After 30 minutes, it got to be a bit much because it seemed like a long time had passed (the show started at 7:30 and The Killers didn't come on until after 9:30). I think I would have wanted them to play longer if the sound in the building was better.

The sound at the USF Sundome is still the worst though. Just awful sound quality. Both times The Killers have come to Tampa they've played there and I wish they would go to the St. Pete Times Forum next time. The Sundome is not a place to go to a concert . Although, it was kind of cool/frightening when the stands shook because part of it is made of wood and the building is so old . It was like, "Yay, here come The Killers! . . . Holy crap, why is this section moving back and forth?!"

No, they weren't allowing cameras (not that I remembered to bring mine anyway ). People still smuggled them in though. But security even warned people as we were going in, "If you get caught taking a picture with your cell phone, we'll take your cell phone away."

In this day and age, that is a super lame policy.

guess it is the luck of the draw with cameras.. depends mainly on the artist. Also the venue too. Alot of times the artist is ok with it but word doesn't trickle down to the security letting you in (or not all of them... some have a i am not a cop complex tryin to push their weight around so to speak). This happened quite a bit with the vertigo tour.. It's so annoying.. It should be just cut and dry...either the artist says ok and makes sure that everyone knows or no cameras period.....

Speaking of cameras . . .

If anyone manages to make it into the Nashville show with a camera and get some decent shots, please PM me, as we will be needing some pics for our review here on the main page . . . .
