The Killers playing free Radio 1 concert

The Killers

The Killers are staging an oh-so ‘intimate’ concert, mostly to tout their ambitious (or so says Brandon Flowers) new LP ‘Battle Born’, at London’s Kentish Town Forum on 10 Sep. None of this would have been possible without hosts BBC Radio 1, who are giving away free tickets to the date on a registration-only, ballot-based basis between 28 Aug and 1 Sep.
