The Killers are on a break.  Brandon Flowers is sowing his wild oats by releasing a solo record called “Flamingo.”  The songs from the album made their New York debut on August 26, 2010 as he performed them live at a sold out show at the Highline Ballroom.  For those hoping for a radical departure from the sound of the Killers in the way that Gwen Stefani of No Doubt and Kele from Bloc Party did on their solo records, you might be disappointed. I personally thought that any of the tracks performed could fit in on a Killers record, so perhaps that will please the legion of fans who are eagerly awaiting the release of “Flamingo.”  He played 8 new songs, a cover of Kim Carnes’ “Bette Davis Eyes,” and 2 tracks by The Killers – “Losing Touch,” and an acoustic version of “When You Were Young.”  Aside from the fact that “When You Were Young” was the encore and final number, the audience just about lost their minds when he started singing the song.  A video of “When You Were Young,” “Bette Davis Eyes,” and “On The Floor” are all coming soon, but please be patient.  I am only one person with many amazing experiences to write about.  He took the stage at 9 pm and played for 45 minutes.  There was no opening act.  The screaming girls around me obviously loved every note, but I did overhear some audience members saying “his solo stuff sucks shit.”  You can decide for yourself when “Flamingo” is released next month.  One thing that is indisputable, Brandon Flowers is a total hottie!
