Brandon Flowers has grown up quite a bit in the past eight or so years -- vocally speaking. The Killers' run across the mainstream radar was a mere three-album jaunt (the band is currently on hiatus), but in that short time, Flowers' has gone from an overstated, showy rock singer to a more subdued and calculated crooner.
Whether you view his 2010 solo debut, Flamingo, to be a good thing or a bad thing, seeing Flowers' perform in a space like the Ogden -- where he'll be tonight, with Travis' singer, Fran Healy -- could be considered an intimate treat for Killers' fans awaiting a reunion. So instead of holding your breath on the band getting back together, why not drop some cash and cross your fingers he (at least) plays sweeping version of "Human"?
This show is 16 and up, and tickets are $30. Doors open at 7 p.m., concert starts at 8 p.m.
