The Killers will play a special one-off concert after midnight at Liberty Hall, Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park on Monday, 19 December - straight after their Sydney show at Qudos Bank Arena on Sunday night.

The Killers surprised and thrilled their fans in New Zealand in late November when they performed an intimate show after midnight at Auckland’s Town Hall following their Spark Arena show on the same night. Sound familiar?

We caught The Killers on their first stop in Australia this year at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre. "The band’s music stands on the shoulders of giants (especially a famous one from New Jersey), and the concert was as much of a celebration of their own songs as it was a celebration of the music that has inspired them – heard in the echoes of Erasure’s A Little Respect in Robbie Connolly’s synth refrain on Boy; or Ronnie Vannucci’s In-the-Air-Tonight drum fills during Shot At The Night; or Flowers’ decision to cover The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, intimately accompanied by Sablay on guitar," Roshan Clerke wrote.

Clerke added, "The band’s catalogue is full of prayers, petitions, religious allusions, and oblique questions about ontology, and the fact that they have managed to build their success on the strength of such slanted and memorably elliptical, if sometimes preposterous, songwriting (it was surreal to look around the crowd during Human, Read My Mind, and All These Things That I’ve Done and wonder exactly how many different pages we were all on regarding these songs’ meanings) is a testament not only to the enduring power of twentieth-century popular music but also to the rubbery, elastic qualities of the English language; it is truly some kind of mysterious."
