The Killers officially closed out the 2017 Voodoo Music + Arts Festival last night in front of a jam packed crowd of thousands.
And while the group had fans singing such classics as ‘Mr. Brightside,’ ‘Your Bones’ and ‘When You Were Young,’ it was a cover of a classic New Orleans musician that left fans cheering the most.
Fats Domino, the New Orleans rock ‘n’ roll pioneer, passed away last week and The Killers paid Domino tribute by covering his larger than life classic “Ain’t That A Shame.” The group brought out the infamous New Orleans Dirty Dozen Brass Band to make sure the tribute was just right. Lead singer Brandon Flowers talked about how much Domino influenced his career as a young musician. Flowers reminisced about driving around and listening to oldies, like Domino’s “Aint That A Shame” on the radio with his dad.
This is the second time the Killers have paid tribute to a late legend. During Austin City Limits 2017, the group covered two Tom Petty songs after the singer’s sudden death.
