Say this for The Killers: They are equal-opportunity rockers in their hometown.
The Las Vegas band has recorded the video for their new single, “The Man,” at the Plaza in downtown Las Vegas. They play a half-dozen songs in a pop-up show on the Strip at Caesars Palace tonight. On Feb. 3, they are at MGM Grand Garden Arena.
And as we learned this afternoon, we can add a Dec. 11 show at Pearl Concert Theater at the Palms to The Killers’ sweeping list of Vegas performances. Tickets for the performance in the 2,500-seat music hall will range from $35-$150 (not including fees) and are to go on sale Sept. 8.
The December show is the first ticketed performance by The Killers at Pearl. Several years ago the band played a private show at the venue.
This date and location of the show was apparently errantly made public by Ticketmaster. This afternoon the ticket sales and distribution behemoth e-mailed Spotify subscribers — those with The Killers listed as favorites — a link announcing The Killers appearance at the Palms.
That link was taken down after a few hours, but not before many fans were notified of the show.
Highlights of The Killers’ performance tonight on the Strip are to air at 11:35 p.m. on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” The band launches its world tour in support of the new album “Wonderful Wonderful” on Wednesday in Milwaukee. The show at MGM Grand Garden Arena on Super Bowl Weekend is the tour’s third-to-last date.
