Not only did we get to see The Killers perform at an intimate gig for Radio 1, but the following night we were lucky enough to swoon over our future husband, Brandon Flowers, all over again.
The Killers were amazing at the iTunes Festival. Copyright [WENN]We saw The Killers perform at the iTunes Festival, in the amazing Roundhouse in Camden. We danced, we sweated, we screamed, we swooned.

Here's our version of the night in omg! moments…
The moment we screamed our hearts out
We blimmin' love the chant: 'I got soul but I'm not a soldier,' in the song All These Things that I've Done. In fact, we may even have a T shirt with the slogan emblazoned on it. So we got pretty passionate when this chant was extended for a good few minutes during the song. Cue hundreds of sweaty fans, arms in the air, screaming out the words as if our lives depended on it.
There's nothing quite like hearing the opening riff of Mr Brightside live. Those few bars sent the crowd completely wild and gave us goosebumps. From head to toe.
The moment we swayed
The Killers took the opportunity in their iTunes Festival set to play some songs from their upcoming album, Battleborn. Playing a bunch of new stuff to a crowd who haven't heard the songs before can be risky, but the track Miss Atomic Bomb calmed us down and got us seriously swaying. We can't wait to do it all over again once the album comes out.
The moment we drooled over Brandon Flowers
Let's face it, we spend most of our time drooling over Brandon Flowers, but we have to say he was looking flipping HOT during their set. The Killers frontman strutted on to the stage wearing a tight black T shirt and trousers looking totally phwoar-some. But the moments when he played the synthesizer at the front of the stage made us seriously swoon. Oh, and the moment he jumped up on top of an amp and just took in the applause. We.Love.Him.
Read My Mind always gets our eyes a bit prickly, but watching The Killers perform it live as we sang out: "I don't shine if you don't shiiiine," made us well up just a tad.
The moment we danced with randoms
The crowd went crazy for Human, with everyone around us dancing and jumping around to the song. In those few minutes it felt like we'd made friends for life.
The moment we stamped our feet
The Killers closed their set with When You Were Young, before taking a bow and walking off the stage. Within seconds the whole crowd was stamping their feet as hard as they could — to the point where we thought the balcony would collapse. The guys eventually reappeared and performed A Dustland Fairytale for their encore which was a poignant note to end on.
