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.

“The Killers peaked in the early noughties and have been getting progressively worse”

Jesus Christ Andrew, these people have families…

Goonerrific

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. ?

Tasmanian Jesus

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.

I'm 14 Again

They lost Santi hence the free fall

Tasmanian Jesus

Btw, love all the puns!

Fabulous

He doesn’t look a thing like Jesus, but he looks like Martinez

I came here exclusively to pun, you bastard.
Well played

Can we get Brendan Rodgers instead of Brendan Flowers please.

Acidgooner

It seems like we get Rodgerd every week

Sam Fender is supporting, check the guy out, he’s going to be big.

Richie

Can we get Samuel Umtiti instead of Samuel Fender please.

TeeCee

Hardly surprising, he’s a geordie. I think they invented obesity.

GoonerRon

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.

Twatsloch

Christ they are awful! Oh well, at least they’re not Muse.

Gooner McGoonFace

Puntacular!!

Smile like you mean it

The Killers – a perfect name for the Kroenke family and their sports franchises. The following from the Guardian just after their 100% takeover; “??????? ??????? ? ???? ???? ???? ???? ??-??-? ?? ??? ??? ????? ?? ???????? ????? ?? ?? ?????, ???? ?? ???? ????? ???? ??? ?????? ???? ??? ???????? ??????? ?? ??? ?? ??? ????? ???????????? ? ???? ?? ??? ???????. ???, ?? ??? ???? ?? ??? ???????, ?? ??? ??????, ???????’? ?????? ?? ??? ??????. ???? ??????? ?????? ??? ?? ?? ????? – ????????? ????? ?? ????????? ?? ??? ?? ?????? ?? ???? ?? ?? –… Read more »

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!!

Kroenke the Klown

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

Torterrier

Great. Something more mediocre than Arsenal at the Emirates.

Arsenal roster: I’ve got soul but I’m not a soldier

Hi-brid

Well, at least the American Idiot has left town. What’s that? Oh.

Oozil

Good stuff blogs ??

Paul Gausden

Why is there no pre sale for season ticket holders as in previous years?

Jordan

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”
