If you were sitting close enough you could see him dry heaving. He was puking before he came out.

This is what happens when you warm up by blowing your bandmates before a show. Then you can't sing!!
HAHAHA this was the funniest thing to read. Your sense of humor is great! haha...but i do like the killers. maybe a nice shot to the back of the throat is soothing sometimes.....?

The first singer was just like P Diddy, he sampled everyones songs. He sucked! The Hot Hot Heat or whatever you call them were good but the sound was soooooooooo off and my ears hurt for the first time at that venue. Then The Killers came out and did 2 great songs, then left stage.
Thirty ,minutes later the drummer and a doctor came out and told us that the lead singer was too much of a wuss to come on stage.
Did they NOT have a backup plan? Maybe a backup singer? How about asking an audience member to rock out on stage if they knew the lyrics? How about doing an instrumental? They were unprepared for such a crisis and I would never see them again.
I am glad that they have my $100 in their pockets and can drink some more Jack Daniels to solve their problems.
well i know danny vegas was great what were you taking

If the guy can't sing, then he can't sing. I feel bad for the guy. The people at the show were supposed to be fans. The moment something goes wrong and they don't get their way, they all of a sudden turn against the band they love.
My killers show was cancelled once but I don't feel the need to boo them or shit talk them. I love that band. Shit happens ya know. Its not the end of the world.
wow i totally agree. the concert scheduled for may 20th in seattle was cancelled and rescheduled to last night, and i went. they were great! but i definitely agree about the fans part. whatever happened to that anyway? isnt the whole point of fans to be supportive?

You mean P. Vegas? He stole the music from the Violent Femmes. He sucked and bored me for the first part of the "concert."

Yep, lame.. I'd bet he knew he was having issues but played anyway.... just long enough to not have to give a refund.
4 tickets - brought our kids,$40 beers and food - for two songs.. and the intro video doesn't count.. nobody was on stage.
We had a couple try to stand in front of our good seats just as the show started. They stood in front of our 10-year-olds... and ten started a fight with us... what an asses... they said since the show was gen admis.. they had the right to stand wherever they wanted. And would move. It took 15 minutes and two security staff to remove the offending couple.... what a jerk.
I can only hope ticketmaster will issue a refund... because for $200, that was lammmmmmmee...
And on top of that.. for the amount of money the Killers make now, you'd think they could figure-out voice issues in advance... The word on the street is Mr. Flowers was wimpy and a primadona for wussing out.

I am not scared to post my real name or tell the truth. Sorry to hear about the disapointment of a short well I guess it was no show at all really. I would have been pissed too. That is the truth.But I know for a fact that this was not the intentions of The Killers. The whole band is made up of some really nice guys. Good husbands too!! They would not do this for an extra dollar.Com e on people Brandon even came out anyway to give it a try. Most famous musicians wouldn't even do that.Especially the pop-star type.The whole bands crew is exceptionally nice. As for Danny Vegas he is awesome and is a favorite of The Killers. He has been friends with them forever. They are like family. As for people who say he is a biter. This is also bull people who love other bands sometimes do tributes. Duh. I have to say its disapointing to see so many haters in this city, because there are so many there in Denver that arn't and don't deserve the negitive attention you haters give them. The Killers also came back to Denver and gave a show in Boulder City at the Fox Theater. Danny Vegas opened the show then also. I have been in love with music since I was a baby, and love all kinds.I am a critic definatley and I love Danny Vegas and his music. Mabey some of you shouldn't take it so personally,and mabey you couldlearn to understand and appreciate our music world a little
