About The KillersThe Killers were formed in Las Vegas in 2001 and are familiar with the downtown Las Vegas scene. They even played as headliners at the first Life Is Beautiful festival in 2013. Since The Plaza has been a staple of downtown Las Vegas since the 1970’s, it was an obvious location choice for The Killers to film a music video with a classic old Vegas feel to it. In the beginning of the video you can see the camera panning to the entrance of The Plaza where you will see the hotel’s marquee letters and valet drive up. The whole music video is an ode to Las Vegas living. Classic scenes of Las Vegas are pictured throughout the video like members of the band having fun gambling in The Plaza Hotel & Casino and Brandon Flowers singing on stage surrounded by beautiful Las Vegas showgirls in The Plaza Showroom.
Music History and The Plaza Hotel CasinoThe Plaza’s music scene has been growing over the past few years. During Life Is Beautiful at the end of September, The Plaza will even hold a private MGMT concert for festival goers staying at the hotel. The hotel and casino has become a cultural hub for the artistic vibe of downtown Las Vegas. With its classic old Vegas feel mixed with modernism and artistic design, The Plaza is a great visual setting for bands and artists to shoot their music videos. The Plaza combines the best of both worlds, the old and the new. The fifth album from The Killers, “Wonderful Wonderful”, is being released towards the end of September 2017. To gather ideas for the album the band members
