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.

Might be rough for M83 to have to open to a crowd of Killers fans

Whats with this web site. Why do you guys hate The Killers so much? What is this personal grudge you guys have against them? They're an amazing band. They probably turned down an interview with all of you clueless f**ks. Everyone is laughing at you guys.
