It was the ultimate rags to riches story this week as that pack of drunk girls who shriek “Mr. Brightside” at the bar where the DJ lazily plays their Spotify library were asked by The Killers to join them on their next world tour.
“When my manager told me about this large pack of girls who stand in a circle and scream that song, I knew they were the ones to join us on our next tour because you don’t just see this all the time –– you see it every single night at the bar,” said Brandon Flowers, lead singer of The Killers. “I’m looking for that authentic ‘Mr. Brightside’ experience we all know where you won’t be able to hear my voice or the guitar riffs because these drunk girls’ shrill voices will overpower my professional singing voice. Our loyal fans deserve this.”
The shrieking ladies couldn’t be happier the band–of which the girls are only aware of one of their songs–begged them to join them on the tour that will begin next month.
