The big news today is that The Killers have announced its local comeback shows: Dec. 28-29 at the Chelsea Ballroom at The Cosmopolitan.
But for local music fans, the news gets sweeter: our own Most Thieves will open the show (which will also feature Canadian duo Tegan & Sara).
The news should might come as little surprise of fans of either band. It's been recently announced that Most Thieves -- who have members who serve as instrument techs for The Killers, and have previously opened shows for Killers drummer Ronnie Vannucci's band, Big Talk -- will open for the multiplatinum quartet this Saturday in Toronto. But the Cosmo shows will be the biggest Vegas shows on Most Thieves' live-show resume thus far.
Standing-room only tickets are $86, with an $126 VIP option for those seeking open-bar access, and go on sale Friday.
Both Vegas bands have brand new albums to promote. The Killers will release its fourth studio album, Battle Born, tomorrow. (Our review here.) Most Thieves released Unnecessary Maps, its debut, last month.
