October 3, 2016 at 12:28 PM (PT)
THE KILLERS and their fans took over SAM'S TOWN HOTEL AND GAMBLING HALL in their hometown LAS VEGAS on SEPTEMBER 30th and OCTOBER 1st to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their sophomore album, "Sam's Town," and its vinyl reissue available for purchase this FRIDAY (OCTOBER 7th) on BONG LOAD RECORDS.
On both FRIDAY and SATURDAY, the band's fans gambled on SAM'S TOWN-themed blackjack tables with custom chips and indulged in specialty meals and cocktails inspired by the band's hits, all while listening to a curated playlist of KILLERS' songs pumping throughout the sound system. There were also live shows by the band along with an intimate two-song acoustic set poolside at sunset, followed later by a full performance of the album, along with other hits from the band's celebrated catalog in the SAM'S TOWN LIVE! venue.
A full 100% of the proceeds from the two-day extravaganza benefited LAS VEGAS charities TONI'S HOUSE and FIRST FRIDAY FOUNDATION, which support recovery for the homeless and those struggling with addiction while bringing arts and culture initiatives to underserved communities.
"Sam's Town" producer ALAN MOULDER flew in for the festivities, which also included the opportunity for fans to dive into the band's musical history with a two-hour bus tour of THE KILLERS' LAS VEGAS that wound through band members' old haunts, locations of the band's first shows and their BATTLE BORN STUDIOS headquarters.
THE KILLERS' vinyl re-issue of "Sam's Town" features two bonus tracks, including the never before released demo, "Peace Of Mind," which will be available as a digital single on all digital stores and streaming partners on OCTOBER 7th.
