I have been a fan of The Killers since I was a teenager and when I heard, back in January, that they were playing a UK show for the first time in years I was quick to snap up tickets.
The event took place on Saturday 8th July in Hyde Park, London. Luckily the sun was out and it was a lovely day to be there. Elbow, Tears for Fears and many other acts were performing as support acts.
On a side note, I really liked my makeup look. I drew a winged liner effect using a navy blue eyeshadow and a colourpop liquid lipstick. Look out for a colourpop haul I'm going to post soon. By the way, in the picture below, I had a filter on so I look way more orange than I actually am!
Elbow were so great. I hadn’t listened to a lot of their music before I saw them yesterday but I really enjoyed the show. Guy was amazing at entertaining the crowd and making sure we were all having fun. Their sound was rockier than I expected and he had 65,000 people singing along to ‘One Day Like This’.
Then came the main act, Las Vegas electro-pop rockers…The Killers! Everyone was so excited. Brandon Flowers just oozes ‘cool’. He even changed his jacket during the set to suit the mood of the song haha! He is, without a doubt, an amazing frontman and, I have to say, it was the best gig I’ve ever been to.

Every single song was amazing. Some I had admittedly never heard before and some I hadn’t heard in years. Of course I knew, and sang along to, all the classics like Smile Like You Mean It and Mr Brightside.
The show ended with an actual fireworks display and I left feeling deeply impressed and thoroughly happy.
The Killers are going on a UK tour in November and I’m already tempted to book tickets! Watch this space.
