The Riptide Music Festival powered by Ford returns to Fort Lauderdale Beach this weekend, with The Killers set to close things out on Saturday night. This two-day RADIO.COM event brings the biggest names in Alternative to the sunniest side of Florida, and there is perhaps nobody better to close out night one than our old friends from Sam's Town.
Brandon Flowers and the crew recently announced their sixth album, Imploding The Mirage, is due out in Spring of 2020. As one of their last shows of the year, it might mean we get to hear something new from the band. That's still left to be seen.
In the meantime though, we've crunched the numbers to see what songs we are most likely to hear on Saturday night. These are the songs that The Killers have played live the most, and the best indicator of what to expect at Riptide Music Festival.
