The ultimate story of The Killers’ rise from Las Vegas croupiers to million selling global superstars headlining festivals throughout the worldFew bands have done for their hometown what The Killers did for Las Vegas. They took Sin City’s heady mix of neon glitz and dangerous undercurrent and turned it into vibrant music that made them one of the biggest bands in the world, selling over 17 million albums worldwide along the way. The Killers: Days & Ages traces their rise through a decade of driving ambition and unbeatable synth-rock melodies to today’s global fame and acclaim from their own heroes, including Bono, Elton John, Neil Tennant, Bruce Springsteen and legions of fans. Including new and exclusive interviews with the band themselves, close associates and famous tour-mates, music journalist Mark Beaumont’s biography tells the incredible, in-depth story of The Killers: the band that slayed the world. In the most authoritative book on The Killers to date, Beaumont combines over ten years of interviews with his commentary on the band, from their founding through their newest album Battle Born.
