These fans are channeling their "Mr. Brightside."
The Killers could finally be heading to Bangkok, if the admins for the band’s Thailand Facebook fan page are to be believed.
In a recent update, The Killers Thailand Fan Page claimed that one of the country’s big concert promoters called them to survey local fans on what would be an affordable price for a potential debut Bangkok show. So far, the post has racked up over 450 comments, 2,300 likes and 1,200 shares, with many fans speculating there could soon be an official announcement.
After forming in 2001, the Las Vegas four-piece fronted by Brandon Flowers rose to acclaim with their 2004 album Hot Fuss packed with catchy post-punk hits like "Mr. Brightside," "Somebody Told Me" and "Smile Like You Mean It." Despite follow-up albums Sam’s Town (2006), Day & Age (2008) and Battle Born (2012) proving less commercially and critically successful, the band remains hot property as a touring act.
The Killers are currently embarking on a world tour in support of their 2017 album Wonderful Wonderful and, if Thailand's long-suffering fans are finally to be rewarded with a visit, we spot a window of opportunity after the band's last Australian tour date on May 8 but before their return to America on May 18.
While we cross our fingers for anything official, here's a taste of the Killers' latest album.
