The coups keep coming for The Killers. In the summer of 2005, the electro-pop phenoms from Las Vegas performed in London for the Live 8 charity extravaganza. They’re back as musical guests on "Saturday Night Live," this time for the show’s season premiere tonight. "All the stars came together," said their manager Robert Reynolds. "Obviously, a lot of bands were vying for that spot." They’ll play two songs — "When You Were Young" and "Bones" — from their new album, "Sam’s Town," which is being released on Tuesday. For "Bones," The Killers will get help from the horn section of SNL’s house band. The song’s video is being produced by veteran director Tim Burton, his first music video. The Killers will be musical guests on ABC’s "Jimmy Kimmel Live" for three consecutive nights next week, a first for Kimmel’s show.
I am curious to see how the smaller SNL cast does tonight.
