The Killers sure know how to make up for lost time.

At their first Singapore outing, the Las Vegas quartet were positively incendiary, going all out to engage gig-goers during the 90-minute show.

The band had previously cancelled a 2010 date here due to frontman Brandon Flowers' mother being ill.

Here's what we loved about the concert.

 

FLOWERS WORKS THE CROWD

From the minute he stepped on stage, Flowers, 32, oozed charisma.

Dressed in black skinny jeans and a leather jacket, which he soon shed to reveal a red-and-white striped shirt, the guy was in a great mood.

Though many acts who come to Singapore tend to throw in an obligatory ni hao (Chinese for "how are you"), Flowers did not stop there.

He went on to greet his adoring following in both Malay and Tamil as well.

His pronunciation of apa khabar? and vanakam may not have been totally spot on, but the attempt was endearing, to say the least.
