The Killers to play at Emirates Stadium

35

It has been confirmed that American band The Killers will play at the Emirates on 6 June next year.

How do I know? Somebody told me.

Given how bad things have been for Arsenal recently it’s hard to believe everything will be alright by then but perhaps the arrival of Brandon Flowers and his musical cohorts will give us supporters a reason to smile like we mean it. We’re trying to look on the Mr. Brightside of life.

Like the Gunners, The Killers peaked in the early-noughties and have been getting progressively worse. You might say, they were good when you were young.

Still, by the time next summer rolls around, any Gunners fans in attendance will likely have fun rejigging the words to Jenny Emery was a friend of mine. That’s unless our Spanish coach is still in the job…for reasons unknown.

Right, you’re probably fed up with all these puns that I’ve done. It’s time to run for cover.

Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, Green Day and Muse have also played at the Emirates.

Jesus Christ Andrew, these people have families…

No doubt the killers will storm off stage telling all the fans to fuck off and then expect everyone to be ok when they don’t apologise. 😉

Absolutely loved their first 2 albums, even the b-sides released after that was pretty good. But they have really taken a nosedive since then.
Couple of good songs here and there, but its nothing compared to the beginning.

They lost Santi hence the free fall

It will be a new thing for them when they are booed for not leaving the stage quickly enough at the interval.

Thank you, I laughed aloud for the first time reading this site in a long while, I also spooked the organic chemistry class I was proctoring at the same time. Two birds, one stone.

The Killers – a perfect name for the Kroenke family and their sports franchises. The following from the Guardian just after their 100% takeover;

Blaming his Rams failure on “fan apathy” … why does that sound familiar?

Why such boring mainstream acts? Let’s have Nile crush out their new album and “greatest hits” at the Emirates instead of always having to play at the Dome in Tufnell Park. “Lashed to the slave stick” come on!!

Green Day playing there is more appropriate given how dookie the gunners are playing and watching them has turned me into a basket case.

Great. Something more mediocre than Arsenal at the Emirates.

Oh yesterday I had a dream, they told me don’t worry about Arsenal as things would get better. In their own words: “We’ve got a soul, but we are not soldiers”
