the killers– Edmonton, May 23, 2007

the killers played Rexall Place in Edmonton on May 23 2007 and I got a ticket at the last moment to see them. I like the killers but I wasn't really looking forward to attending by myself. I don't enjoy watching a film alone and this concert was the same.

I guess it's sort of like "If a tree falls in the forest and nobody's there to hear it, does it make a sound?". Actually there were about 12000 people there so I wasn't alone exactly but you get the idea.

Overall I thought the concert was ok. Things I liked:

Things I didn't like:
