#10yearsofHotFuss - On 26 June, 2004, The Killers played at Glastonbury for the first time. Even with the small set and technical problems, the New Bands Tent was overflowing with people, who cheered to every song.
I didn’t expect the tent to be that full. Up until that moment I was never sure about playing in front of so many people, but I found it enjoyable. And then it led to V and a crowd three times as large as that!
A lot of the people who work with us were crying! I usually get overwhelmed when I walk out because that’s always the best thing when you watch a band. To be on the flipside was pretty incredible. - BF
That gig made the band receive an invite to headline Glasto on the following year, which they refused claiming they didn’t deserve this spot yet. Still, they played on the Pyramid Stage in 2005. The Killers were finally headliners in 2007.
