You know you’ve made it big when you have a song featured on video games. The Killers‘ hit song “When You Were Young” is an option for the popular game, Guitar Hero 3. While many younger kids may have first heard the song while playing, older Killers’ fans know the Las Vegas band has plenty more hits up their sleeves.
2001 marked the starting point for The Killers. After going on countless tours, selling millions of copies of their three studio albums, and getting nominated for plenty of awards, including several Grammys, the band took a much needed, but brief, break in 2011. Their return in 2012 was marked with the release of their fourth and most recent studio album, Battle Born.
Rumored to be in the process of recording their next album, The Killers also have their hands full playing shows across America and Asia. They’ll be making a stop at the Merriweather Post Pavilion this Saturday, August 10. If you haven’t bought your tickets yet, we have a pair to give away within the next twenty-four hours…
Supporting The Killers on their U.S. tour is The Virgins. The band hails from the complete opposite side of the country from their tour mates—New York City. Founding member Donald Cummings gathered friends to form The Virgins in 2006. With an EP, a self-titled album, and more recently, the 2013 release of their second album, Strike Gently, The Virgins are well on their way to The Killers’ band status.
To win a pair of tickets to see The Killers and The Virgins at Merriweather Post Pavilion on Saturday, 8/10, drop a comment in the box below naming your favorite song to play on any guitar/band simulating games. My favorite would be from the game Rock Band. Being a fan of Fall Out Boy, I got a kick out of being the singer for “Dead on Arrival.”
The winner will be chosen at noon tomorrow on Friday, August 9, so be sure to put in your comment soon. If you don’t win them from us, you can still buy tickets.
