The band's taped performance will air during halftime on Monday Night Football.
With a new stadium and NFL team in town, it's only fitting that Las Vegas' favorite sons The Killers, fresh off a hit album, Imploding The Mirage, will lead the entertainment for the Las Vegas' Raiders inaugural season on Sept. 21.
Airing on ESPN and ABC during the team's Monday Night Football match against the New Orleans Saints at Allegiant Stadium, the band's halftime performance was pre-recorded on the rooftop of the Nobu Villa at Caesars Palace, overlooking the Strip. Caesars Entertainment is a founding partner of Allegiant Stadium.
"We were lucky to get The Killers," says Las Vegas Raiders president Marc Badain. "We were honored they were willing to do it. We've been looking forward to this for a long time and obviously had to be very flexible with what's been going on the last six months. We didn't know what the game was going to look like. We didn't know what was going to be allowed or not allowed."
