No, it probably was the 21st, but I don't think it was with The Killers, that date is not any of their schedules that I've seen anyways. I just assumed it was April 22 or 23 judging by their next four dates.
Why did they stop The Killers tour when they did and play little clubs instead?
Edit: Oh, I forgot, thanks for that gig link blade, but it says it is temporarily unavailable.
I'll have to check that, whether it was with The Killers or not. I thought they finished with The Killers on April 21st and then moved up the east coast to play a few gigs on their own, at small venues, but I'll see if I can double check.
You're too quick with the Megaupload link! I've noticed before they sometimes don't seem to work straightaway but go back a few minutes later and it's OK. It worked for me just now. Let me know if you keep having a poblem with it and I'll try another upload somewhere else.
I don't know how that type of thing works, maybe it was a contract or something where they could only play so many dates with them or whatever. I dunno. But you'd think they'd want to play a huge place like Madison Square Garden rather than just a tiny club.
The link still isn't working, but it's no big deal. No hurries, just whenever you get around to it is cool.
Thanks, blade, it worked for me now. I just had to wait a little while.
The reason I wanted to know the date they played in Jacksonville is because I read that Joel said that this was the lowest point in their career so far and that Brendan had been pepper-sprayed there as well.
I also did not realize that just a few dates earlier in Austin, Brendan had hurt his back and went to the hospital and could not play the next three shows. I was just trying to connect the dots in this period of time.
I had to search around for the articles again because I didn't save em at the time I was reading them. Brendan must have crossed paths with a black cat while walking under a ladder or something. Poor guy was not having a good week. ;D
