It seems old mates The Killers couldn’t wait for today’s AFL Grand Final pre-game spectacular to bust out some tunes for their Aussie fans, and decided to surprise punters in Melbourne last night with a guerrilla gig at Howler.
A packed house of 400 fan club members got shouted to a secret show from Brandon Flowers & co at the Brunswick venue, during which the band busted out a bunch of their hits, including funky-fresh radio earworm, ‘The Man’.
“BEST GIG EVER! Thanks to all who helped get this gig happening I couldn’t be more stoked,” one punter posted on Instagram.
“Had the best time!! They rocked & Brandon is so much hotter in the flesh!! Thanks… for a truly magical night which was a once in a lifetime experience,” posted another.
While a third added: “It’s nice to wake up and know it wasn’t a dream. I’m still amazed that I got to see @thekillers in a 400 capacity crowd. Today I’ll see them in a venue that will house 100,000 people. Life is crazy sometimes.”
The band will then play YET ANOTHER Melbourne show this evening — busting out a FREE set at the MCG for fans as part of the Virgin Australia Premiership Party from 6pm.
Also, ICYMI: The Killers will be returning to our shores in 2018 for their biggest Australian tour to date.
Until then, catch pics and a bit of footage from their secret Melbourne show last night, below.
