The Killers made their headline appearance at Quebec City Summer Festival on July 8, performing to the tens of thousands gathered at the historic Plains of Abraham. Fans not lucky enough to catch Tuesday night's show at the Bell Stage or their surprise intimate performance on July 6 at Quebec City's Cabaret du Capitole can check out a newly posted video recap to get a taste of what they missed.
Festival d’été de Québec has posted video footage from the shows at their official YouTube page on July 9. The 1:40 minute clip reveals backstage footage of the Las Vegas based alt-rockers, location shots, a brief snippet of their show at Cabaret du Capitole, as well as live footage from their FEQ headline appearance, performing their 2004 debut single, " Mr. Brightside."
Brandon Flowers and company performed an 18 song setlist, serving up a good cross-section of their hits and fav tracks from The Killers' four studio albums. For good measure, they threw in a cover of Creedence Clearwater Revival's classic "Bad Moon Rising." The band also gave a tip of the hat of to famed Quebec born producer/singer-songwriter Daniel Lanois, performing Lanois' "The Maker." Lanois, who also performed at FEQ on July 9, worked with Flowers on his first solo album Flamingo and with The Killers on their fourth studio album, Battle Born.
