The Killers guitarist Dave Keuning has said that walking away from the band before their last world tour was the “hardest decision” he’s ever made. During the hiatus, Keuning wrote his first solo record. “I did four album tours that were two years each,” Keuning said.
With a fifth album, Wonderful Wonderful, out later this month and a UK arena tour booked in November, they came to this 5,000-capacity venue to provide a sneak peak of their future and a reminder of their past. With guitarist Dave Keuning taking a break from live performance, one might have expected the Las Vegas band to sound at half-strength. At the heart of it all was Brandon Flowers.
