Around 2am this morning I was laying cross-legged on my living room couch having just finished off a second bottle of Chardonnay. Listening to Cool Wave 98.2 FM when the sax to Glen Frey’s ‘You Belong to the City’ came on. My penis kept getting bigger.

WOW... that's all I can say about that.

You must have never been to a Coachella before if the only reason you would be going is for the Killers

Man don't you all love this time of year right before the lineup gets announced. You get all these shit fucks on here praising talentless anal beads like The Killers. Honestly I don't care if they play, and if nothing else is going on I'll probally check em out. But if they headline Saturday it will be a huge dissapointment to the scale of Jack Johnson IMHO.

See, I don't understand this logic. Yes, I'm pretty sure they'll be there on Saturday. But why the hell would they be the headliner, considering the size of the places they are playing?

The venue size isn't everything, but it is if they're going to book a more mainstream act. The only reason to do that is to draw the crowd that an arena act can pull.

EDIT- BTW, I actually like them, though they are pretty weak live. I'm trying to look at it objectively. 9pm-mainstage would be my bet.

^^I agree, Sparks, I've yet to be convinced they can headline even a Friday, not to mention a Saturday. But they're definitely playing Saturday, so I guess we'll see.

M Sparks

I'm looking at their whole tour...it's kind of hard to tell. There are "arenas" on there.

The problem is, I'm not familiar with most of the venues. Normally "arena" means 15,000+. But they played Magness Arena in Denver- that's actually a college sports complex and only holds about 8000. Also, I know Mohegan Sun Arena in CT is under 10,000.

The Joint is tiny. The are also playing at least one House Of Blues. There are an awful lot of "theatres" on their tour. I think they're kind of in between. They are probably selling out theatres no problem, and playing to 1/2 full arenas

Who would you equate them to right now, based on a lot of these venues? Weezer? Kings of Leon? (Just throwing two names out there who seem similarly-sized to me, but I have no real clue how popular bands are because I live in Iowa.)

garrett222
01-22-2009, 04:25 AM
much bigger than kings of leon, in the US.

Weezer - at weezers height of popularity.

I'd say they're as popular as the white stripes, as far as show capacity

Weezer - at weezers height of popularity.

Weezer's tour last year...

09/23 - Boston, MA - Tsongas Arena
09/24 - New York, NY - Madison Square Garden
09/26 - Atlantic City, NJ - Borgata Casino
09/27 - Philadelphia, PA - Susquehanna Center
09/29 - Detroit, MI - The Palace of Auburn Hills
09/30 - Toronto, ON - Air Canada Center
10/02 - Chicago, IL - All State Arena
10/03 - St. Paul, MN - Xcel Arena
10/05 - Denver, CO - Broomfield
10/07 - Salt Lake City, UT - E Center
10/09 - Portland OR - Memorial Coliseum
10/10 - Vancouver, BC - GM Place
10/11 - Seattle, WA - Key Arena
10/13 - San Jose, CA - Events Center
10/14 - Los Angeles, CA - The Forum
10/17 - San Diego, CA - Cox Arena
10/18 - Phoenix, AZ - Arizona State Fair
10/20 - Austin, TX - Frank Erwin Center
10/21 - Dallas, TX - Nokia Theater
10/23 - Houston, TX - Reliant Arena
10/25 - Atlanta, GA - Gwinnett Arena

Bigger venues almost everywhere. And they sure as hell aren't at their height of popularity.

I don't know jack about Kings Of Leon. I would guess Killers are way above them in drawing power.

Ya know, we are forgetting one fact...The Killers actually headlined the Reading/Leeds festival last year.

But I think they are bigger in the UK.

Sub-headliner. And it was under Razorlight, who would be 3rd or 4th line here.

Honestly I have not heard the past 2 albums so I don't know how I feel about the Killers new stuff but I did just see them in concert this past weekend and they fucking killed it. I would be happy if they went but won't be dissapointed if they don't.

Nope. They will be the main subheadliners. Playing right before The Smiths.

I really really like The Killers first album. I think they kinda went down hill from there. But I am stuck seeing their set regardless of conflicts b/c they are more or less my girlfriend's favorite current band and one of the few acts that is getting her out to Coachella this year (which is odd, because she bought plane tickets and promised to buy fest tickets for my Xmas present, even before they were officially going to play). In any event, if they are there and we don't see them, there will be hell to pay (by me). And we are seeing them in a week in a half in Dallas too.

Oh well, small price to pay for seeing 30-40 or so other bands she doesn't give a shit about. I'll probably send her to the spa one day.

The Killers actually sold out MSG just last week and the Air Canada Center a few days before that. I saw them in an arena that holds about 8000 and the tickets sold out quickly. All around the world they headline festivals and play in major arenas. The mainstream US market has been slow to them...they are worthy of headlining here.
