The Killers Concert
Friday, Oct. 1, 2021 | 8 p.m. at St. Augustine Amphitheatre
The Killers add a stop on their Imploding the Mirage Tour at The St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Friday, October 1, 2021.
Since the release of their 2004 debut, Hot Fuss, The Killers have sold 28 million albums, headlined stadiums and festivals around the world and won dozens of accolades globally. The band continues their reign as America’s heartland heroes as they head into promotion of their sixth studio album, Imploding The Mirage.
Following their 2017 Billboard #1 album, Wonderful Wonderful — a love letter of sorts, as Brandon Flowers crafted songs of encouragement to his wife during crippling bouts of depression —Imploding The Mirage is the light after the dark; the overcoming of sadness and moving into celebration. It’s a record about eternal love, perseverance through hard times, and the strength gained from friendships and familial bonds whilst weathering a storm.
Back in 2020, the band released Imploding The Mirage (On August 13, 2021, the band released their seventh album Pressure Machine). Indeed, Imploding The Mirage leaves the grit and glitter of Vegas behind for something more expansive and triumphant. (Literally. Flowers moved his family from the parched flats of Vegas, Nevada, to the lush mountains of Utah before beginning work on the record.)
It’s an album that also pushed the band out of their musical comfort zone, exploring new terrain and referencing the albums in their collection that filled them with a sense of romance and camaraderie in their youth. Influences include Kate Bush and Peter Gabriel, as well as Killers’ touchstones like Bruce Springsteen and New Order.
