The Killers Cover U2 At London UK Tour Date

Band perform ‘With Or Without You’ on the last date of their UK tour.

The Killers covered U2’s ‘With Or Without You’ on the last date of their UK tour in London.

Opening the night with ‘Mr Brightside’, the Las Vegas four-piece went on to play a collection of hit singles before performing a stripped-back and reduced version of U2’s ‘With Or Without You’.

There was an element of doubt as to whether the band would complete the tour, following their Manchester gig being cut short due to Brandon Flowers experiencing vocal problems. A second date in Manchester was already cancelled whilst Brandon recovered from the acute sore throat that had affected his performance.

Recently, vocalist Flowers spoke to press about a potential collaboration with Muse being on the cards and went on to talk about the aesthetics of The Killers’ live performance. When questioned on the possibility of having pyrotechnics, like their friends in Muse, Flowers said ‘it was a fine line between turning The Killers into Kiss’, yet the fans at the O2 were treated to a laser show to ‘Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine’ and a pyrotechnic display alongside ‘Miss Atomic Bomb’.

The Killers setlist was as follows:

Mr. Brightside
The Way It Was
Smile Like You Mean It

Bling (Confession of a King)

Miss Atomic Bomb
Somebody Told Me
Here With Me

For Reasons Unknown

From Here On Out
A Dustland Fairytale
With or Without You
Read My Mind’

When You Were Young
Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine’
All These Things That I’ve Done
Battle Born
