The Killers to reissue Sam's Town for 10-year anniversary
The Vegas rock band will also host a two-day extravaganza to celebrate the album
The Killers will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their 2006 smash album Sam’s Town with a vinyl reissue this fall and a two-day “Decennial Extravaganza” at Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall in Las Vegas on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 of this year.
The vinyl reissue will include two new bonus tracks — a demo of “Peace of Mind” and “Read My Mind (Pet Shop Boys Stars Are Blazing Mix).” The band will release 5,016 copies, all of which include a booklet on the anniversary. The collection can be pre-ordered via Bong Load Records.
Tickets for the two-day Vegas celebration go on sale to the band’s fan club on Aug. 3 at 10 a.m. PT and to the general public on Aug. 5. The weekend will include performances from the Killers on Friday and Saturday night and a tour of iconic Killers-related locations in Las Vegas.
The Killers most recently released a compilation album Direct Hits in 2013, and their last studio album, Battle Born, in 2012. Earlier this summer, they headlined New York’s Governors Ball with a raucous set of hits from their debut album, Hot Fuss, and Sam’s Town, and a live version of their recent cover of Interpol’s “Obstacle 1.”
