The Killers shake up setlist and cover The Kinks as ‘Rebel Diamonds’ UK and Ireland tour continues in Dublin

Our Show Times

The Killers shuffled their setlist and covered The Kinks at the second show of their ‘Rebel Diamonds’ UK and Ireland tour last night (June 14) – see footage and the full setlist below.

It was the band’s second show at Dublin’s 3Arena in three nights at the start of a run of greatest hits shows that the band are playing across the UK and Ireland throughout the summer.

Their 21-song set included a number of changes from the previous show, including tour debuts for eight songs, including four from 2006’s ‘Sam’s Town’ in the form of ‘Enterlude’, ‘For Reasons Unknown’, ‘Bones’ and ‘Exitlude’.

The also opened with ‘My Own Soul’s Warning’ from the 2020 album ‘Imploding The Mirage’, and played the title track of their most recent studio record, 2021’s ‘Pressure Machine’.

In among their own material, the band also indulged in a cover of The Kinks’ 1982 single ‘Come Dancing’.

In addition, five tracks from 2004 debut album ‘Hot Fuss’ got an airing, including ‘Andy, You’re A Star’, which they only recently revived on stage for the first time in seven years.

The Killers’ June 14 Dublin setlist was:

‘My Own Soul’s Warning’
‘The Way It Was’
‘Somebody Told Me’
‘Smile Like You Mean It’
‘For Reasons Unknown’
‘Dying Breed’
‘Come Dancing’
‘Read My Mind’
‘Your Side Of Town’
‘Andy, You’re A Star’
‘All These Things That I’ve Done’
‘Pressure Machine’
‘Mr. Brightside’
‘When You Were Young’

The new shows have also seen founding member Dave Keuning back in the line-up, following his departure in 2017 to spend more time with his family. He confirmed that he wouldn’t be joining the band to tour their fifth studio album, ‘Wonderful Wonderful’, seven years ago, but remained a member of the group.

While he did not contribute to their follow-up LP ‘Imploding The Mirage’, he did join them in the studio back in 2021 for their seventh album ‘Pressure Machine’. He also used his time away from the touring line-up to release solo music.

The performances also come just weeks after the ‘Hot Fuss’ hit ‘Mr Brightside’ hit a huge milestone, overtaking Oasis’ ‘Wonderwall’ to become the UK’s official biggest single of all time yet to reach Number One.

According to figures from the Official Charts Company, it has UK sales and streams of 5.57million, yet never topped the charts.

Flowers and Co. have one more show in Dublin lined up, followed by four stops in Manchester and three in Glasgow. They’ll then wrap up the tour with six nights at The O2 in London. Visit here for last-minute tickets.
