Per tradition, Brandon Flowers is introducing his latest tunes to his hometown.
The Killers' frontman has just announced a show for this coming Monday, March 9, at the Bunkhouse, the first one prior to the emergence of his second solo album, The Desired Effect (due out May 19). He did the same sort of Vegas-first, pre-release exposure in August 2010, when he performed at the Shimmer Cabaret at the then-Las Vegas Hilton—one night after a surprise mini-set at Surrender—a month ahead of putting out his solo debut, Flamingo.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow, March 6, at 10 a.m. and are $25 each and limited to two per buyer, who must pick up the tickets in person with photo ID on Monday at the Bunkhouse will call, as they're non-transferable. (More details can be found here.) Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show takes place from 8-10 p.m.
Flowers spent most of 2014 making The Desired Effect with producer Ariel Rechtshaid, best known for his Grammy-winning work on Vampire Weekend's 2013 album, Modern Vampires of the City. He recently told NME that it's "definitely gonna be different."
The Killers remain on hiatus, though they will play a handful of festivals this year. The closest one to Las Vegas takes place September 18-20 at Kaaboo in San Diego.
