The Killers @ Madison Square Garden, January 25th, 2009

Fantastic show. Really amazing. The band put on a great performance, Everyone sounded really tight, and the sound levels were near perfect, which is something i always am fussy about. The stage was set up with a massive backdrop of lights, that played various visuals and videos as the band played. Behind the band were numerous palm trees to add a real Las Vegas image, which of course makes sense, seeing as the band hail from that very place. Amongst the many highlights, the one that stood out the most for me was when the band did there rendition of a Joy Division song called "Shadowplay". As the band did there performance, the backdrop played clips from the Joy Division/Ian Curtis Biopic "Control". The stage set up really amazed me, coming across as a glitzy concert taking place in the desert. Brilliant approach, I thought. The Killers aim for that big glam appeal and I feel as if they achieved it.
