If you’ve seen my Facebook or Instagram posts, I’m sure you’ve seen that I went to see The Killers last night. I fell in love with The Killers a quite a few years ago and fell deep in love with Brandon Flowers, the lead singer. I mean, that voice! Gosh he’s dreamy.
When I first started dating my Knight in Shining Armor he used to lecture me because I would call a concert a concert and apparently they are “shows”. Silly me. After watching The Killers perform I now understand why some are shows, not concerts. They had confetti explosions, pyrotechnics, lasers, a video screen, and two cover songs. My favorite cover song on one of their albums is Romeo and Juliet, which I was secretly hoping they’d play (and by secret I mean I told my KISA every other song I hoped they did), but knew they most likely wouldn’t Well, they didn’t But, the cover songs they played were even better. First, Brandon and his guitarist broke off into “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay”, which is amazing since obviously he’s singing it in San Francisco. I have that song stuck in my head at least once a week since we’ve moved out here because it’s so fitting. The second cover song was, “I Think We’re Alone Now”. My first childhood music memory was when we lived at “Martha’s” (we lived on a few farms, so you have to clarify which one…Martha was an old mean lady that rented ours to us) and I was dancing to that song and running around some pillows on the floor in our living room during the chorus (“running just as fast as we can…”). I’m sure my younger brother was dancing with me as well since I made him do pretty much everything with me. And, you can probably guess that I’d be screaming out the lyrics as I “danced”. (I put danced in quotes because if you’ve ever seen me dance, it’s really more of a “dance”. I’m told I dance to the words, not the beat. How are you supposed to interpret their lyrics if you only dance to the beat?)
Well, my KISA is old. And by old I mean 11 months older than me. And we decided to do a “show” on a Sunday night. And stand for hours. During the show and when we got home we had to stretch each other as we moaned about how much our back and knees hurt. Which continued on into this morning. We also were groggy because we didn’t go to bed until midnight and I for one am hosting a work webinar this morning and had to be on the train before 7 am. Ugh. You can bet I didn’t shower this morning. Being an adult can be tough.
I apologize for the duplication if you follow me on Instagram, but here are some of my favorite pictures from last night.
