The Las Vegas headlined London's Hyde Park in the most spectacular fashion, complete with a finale fireworks display. The Killers returned to London this weekend July 8th to play a superb, sold out show at London's Hyde Park as part of the British Summertime Festival and, safe to say, the crowd went absolutely crazy for them. But the biggest cheers were reserved for the finale of 'Mr Brightside' which saw the audience kick things up a level and ended with a huge fireworks display above the stage.
Once again, the British sensation again played a late Sunday slot, just like last year. For the second year in a row, a rising hip-hop star stole the show from the headliners. Backed by his hot-shit Free Nationals ensemble, he skipped and stumble-danced from wing to wing in exaggerated motions, and even worked in a drum solo or two.

Self-proclaimed " percent Texas-bred white trash," Red Reverse revives the cacophony of late '80s hardcore punk rock with youthful screams and contagious chanting, leaving behind a wake of fans dizzy from circling the mosh pit one too many songs. Five members, 20 limbs, 50 fingers, four instruments, and three microphones groove together to create one powerful sound that make a live Red Reverse show a frenzied flail of earnest fists and feet. Fans can leave with more than bruises and black eyes on Friday, July 26, when the band releases its self-produced sophomore album, Remorse and the Vicious Cycle.
This guy is the devil. He plants himself near the front of the pit and holds his phone high above his head. What cinematography! You want a boost up so you can crowd surf?
