Tickets for this show will go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, August 31, 2012 at 12 pm ET.
The Killers - American Express UNSTAGED Trailer:
Award-winning director Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man, Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Encounters at the End of the World), known for pushing cinematic boundaries, was hand-selected by The Killers to capture the performance with a visually stunning home viewing experience.
"We're so honored to work with Werner Herzog," said Killers front man Brandon Flowers. "He's made some legendary films and we can't believe we got him to do this."
Battle Born, named after the words emblazoned on the Nevada state flag, in addition to sharing its name with the band's recording studio, is everything Killers fans have waited for since the band announced they would be taking a short hiatus at the start of 2010.
Battle Born, already being heralded as one of the most anticipated albums of 2012, is simply The Killers doing what they do best and then some: the choruses are grander, the guitars are heavier, the drums more powerful, the vocals more commanding - all sounding quintessentially Killers while sounding bigger and better than ever before. It is an album that, like its namesake and the band that created it, does not back down from its own strengths.
