I was actually phoning the Albert Hall about some proms tickets when I rather fortuitously spotted a gap in my diary that coincided with the worlds best playing at the worlds best so I asked on the offchance they had any tickets left. They had all gone except some seats in the 3rd floor circle. I hope my pictures do some justice to how amazing these seats actually were.
The Killers have a very particular recognisable sound which in the Albert Hall acoustics was crystal clear, I'll have a go at inventing a non-existent genre (as I'm prone to do) – Synth indy rock an roll, Yup, that'll do.I can't say I'm a massive Killers fan but I know all their big tunes and in the words of a certain Jack Walsh who had commented via the magic of facebook when he found out I was going to see the Killers 'I saw them in Hyde Park recently and couldn't believe how many good tunes they've actually done'. Thanks Jack, spot on, I couldn't and therefore didn't say it better myself.
The added bonus was taking my physiotherapist Ian

I have (after some initial scepticism) bought into Ian/Adriennes theory: It must be the Ritalin!
