The Killers kicked off their 2022 UK stadium tour in Doncaster last night (May 24) – see photos, video, reaction, the setlist and ticket details for remaining gigs below.

After playing an intimate tour warm-up in Sheffield last week (May 17), Brandon Flowers and co. played the Eco-Power Stadiumhome of Doncaster Rovers FC, last night to open their tour.

At the show, they played tracks from across their seven studio albums, as well as a handful of covers.

Among the cover versions were the band’s classic rendition of the Joy Division hit ‘Shadowplay’ and a version of ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’, the 1950s track written by Ewan MacColl for Peggy Seeger and popularized by Roberta Flack.

The set began with ‘My Own Soul’s Warning’ and ended with a four-song encore including ‘Hot Fuss’ tracks ‘Midnight Show’ and set closer ‘All These Things That I’ve Done’.

For the opening track, the band were backed by crashes of lightning on the big rectangular screen, with massive screens also flanking them on either side.
