Paris meets Vegas-M83 to open for Killers, tour announced
M83 are set to open for The Killers on the latter's 2009 North American tour after headlining a smattering of shows in North America. The band has already served as opening act for Kings of Leon on its European tour.
The question is, are M83 fans also Killers fans? It doesn't really seem all that likely--there is probably a sliver of cross-over here. However, M83's critically fawned over latest release, Saturdays=Youth, has probably earned them enough die-hard fans who might be willing to fork over the cash and sit through a Killers show.
