Reviews

Filmed at London’s Royal Albert Hall during two very special shows in July 2009, Live From The Royal Albert Hall showcases the Killers at their live best. This DVD-sized package also includes the band’s first and only live CD with, as well as a behind-the-scenes documentary. Live From The Royal Albert Hall features tracks from the band’s three studio albums, Hot Fuss (2004), Sam’s Town (2006) and Day & Age (2008)--including huge hit singles "Human", "Spaceman", "When You Were Young", "Read My Mind", "Mr Brightside", "Somebody Told Me" and "All These Things That I’ve Done"--as well as rarer tracks including a cover of Joy Division’s "Shadowplay" and fan favourite "Sweet Talk" (from the 2007 collection of rarities, Sawdust).

Format:DVD
Let me start by saying that i'm not the world's biggest Killers fan. I like them, and a lot of their songs. And I have seen them live as support for U2 @ Cardiff Stadium on during U2's Vertigo tour. But I'm not a blinkered fanboi of Messr's Flowers and co..

But credit where it is due. This is a live concert DVD of immense brilliance. It's not unusual these days for concerts to have audio and video captured in high quality, but sometimes that is not enough. What makes this so special is firstly the setting of the Royal Albert Hall and secondly the way it has been edited to give a very intimate and revealing glimpse of the band pre, during and after a concert.

Setting: To shoot this DVD @ RAH is a stroke of genius by the band. I am so glad they choose not to record one of their more ubiqitous festival performances (although there are some extra tracks on the disc from festival performances...). To be honest I have been getting a bit tired of seeing The Killers every year on TV during the summer headlining this or that festival. The RHA show is small enough to be intimate, but big enough to be impressive. And it is a fabulous venue, and they have made it the centerpiece of the show by having outside the venue street shots as well as 'flying' down the hallways and backstage with the band. It gives you a real sense of the venue missing in so many concert DVD's where a band is playing some anonymous concrete arena. This emphises on the building creates extra feeling and intimacy for the concert. For example, following Brandon during a song out from the stage back into the public concourse and through a door way back onto a balcony in the hall shows how interconnected the place is - with only a short distance between the stage and any part of the hall.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Live DVDs I've Purchased 12 Nov 2009
Format:DVD
This is a majestic performance from beginning to end, and The Killers prove themselves well-worthy of the beautiful Royal Albert Hall setting.

I saw the band live at T in the Park earlier in the year, and while some elements of the performance are similar (the set list is almost identical, and some of the songs are introduced in the same way), the overall "feel" of the Royal Albert Hall gig is more refined and intimate.

Highlights, for me, are the extended Day and Age Tour versions of "For Reasons Unknown" and "Bling" (both of which drop down and take a lull while Brandon Flowers encourages some crowd interaction, before picking back up and exploding into their utterly climactic conclusions); the surprise-packages of "I Can't Stay" and "Sweet Talk" (the former in particular is performed stunningly), and the one-two smackdown of "Mr Brightside" and "All These Things That I've Done"... "Spaceman" and "Dustland Fairytale" are a pretty powerful combination too. Generally speaking, all of the tracks sound far better live than they do recorded; there's more energy and clarity to them and Flowers' voice sounds tremendous when it isn't needlessly roboticized as it sometimes is in their albums.

The only song that I feel somewhat drags is "The World We Live In", but that's more to do with the fact that the studio version was never a favourite of mine anyway, not because it's a sub-par performance -- if you like the song, you'll like the live version more than I did.

The DVD begins and ends with new versions of "Enterlude" and "Exitlude", and features bonus performances, including one of my personal favourites "Tranquilize" from the Oxegen festival.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning - A perfect live dvd/cd 4 Jun 2011
By Steph
Format:Audio CD
The Killers Live From The Royal Albert Hall is a fantastic live dvd and cd compiled from the Las Vegas band's two night stand at London's Royal Albert Hall on the 5th and 6th July 2009. The dvd is largely based around their Day & Age album but also features a generous amount of material from their previous albums; Hot Fuss, Sam's Town and the rarities album Sawdust.

I was lucky enough to be at this concert, so watching the dvd brought back memories from a truly spectacular night. The band were on top form and Brandon Flowers appeared to be in his element, delivering a charismatic performance, with great stage presence and impressive vocals throughout. Some of the performance highlights for me include 'This Is Your Life', 'Joy Ride', 'Read My Mind' and 'A Dustland Fairytale' (during which Flowers strides into the crowd to join in with a fan sing-a-long). Other highlights include a spine tingling acoustic rendition of 'Sam's Town', the anthem like 'All These Things That I've Done' and the stunning 'I Can't Stay', in which Flowers' strong vocals are particularly evident. Although the dvd centres mostly around the Day & Age album, the setlist provides a varied mixture of tracks from previous albums, including fan favourites 'Mr Brightside' and 'Somebody Told Me'. My one and only gripe (if you can call it that) with the setlist is that I wish they had of played 'Neon Tiger' as it is my favourite track from the Day & Age album, and it sounds brilliant played live.

On a side note, I loved how the dvd is filmed and directed. The camera following the band as they leave and return to the stage for the encore, complete with backstage shots gives the dvd a real documentary style feel, and makes the viewer feel like they are part of the action.
