The Killers are coming to town! Or, more accurately, The Killers are driving over to the Strip!
Las Vegas' most famous musical foursome will close out a month-long tour in support of new album Battle Born Friday, December 28 and Saturday, December 29 at the Cosmopolitan's Chelsea Ballroom.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, September 21, at 9 a.m. and run from $86 to $125, with access to an open bar included at the higher end.
Battle Born, which comes nearly four years after the preceding Day & Age, officially goes on sale on Tuesday, September 18. Las Vegas Weekly reviewer Smith Galtney gave the record four stars out of five, writing that it "attains a nice balance of fire and glory and nuance."
The Cosmopolitan also has the Red Hot Chili Peppers booked to play the same room on New Year's Eve.
Update: Now comes word that, along with national support act Tegan and Sara, Las Vegas band Most Thieves will open both Killers shows at the Cosmopolitan. The local quintet, which recently released debut album Unnecessary Maps, is also on the bill for the September 22 Killers concert in Toronto.
The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas dares to be different. From the hotel’s red reservations desks to fine art found throughout the resort, The Cosmopolitan’s signature style is helping to pave its own path on the Las Vegas Strip.
Upon entering the resort, you’re greeted by pillars of video boards playing video art by Digital Kitchen and David Rockwell Studio exclusively produced for The Cosmopolitan. Just beyond that, you’ll find all your favorite casino games on the resort’s 100,000-square-foot casino floor.
The Cosmopolitan’s rooms standout as the resort’s most unique feature. About 2,220 of The Cosmopolitan’s 2,995 rooms have 6-foot deep terraces that span the length of the room, a first at a modern Strip hotel. Other in-room amenities include soaking tubs, kitchenettes and quirky accessories like artsy coffee table books.
The dining experience at The Cosmopolitan isn’t something you’ll find at other Strip resorts, either. All of The Cosmopolitan’s 13 restaurateurs are new to the Las Vegas market. You’ll find American steakhouse fare in a modern setting at STK, top-notch sushi at Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill and the freshest fish flown in from the Mediterranean daily at Estiatorio Milos.
Whether the sun is up or down, Marquee Nightclub & Dayclub is the place to find the party at The Cosmopolitan. The venue is a dayclub/nightclub, complete with a pool and cabanas outside and three different rooms with three different vibes inside.
If nightclubs aren’t your thing, you can grab a drink at one of The Cosmopolitan’s five other bars, like The Chandelier, which is encased in 2 million dripping crystals.
