Prepare to be taken from A to Z (Absolute Beginners to Ziggy!) with Let's Dance in between. As Woody Woodmansey (Spiders from Mars) said: "Absolutely wicked. As one who was there, watching AB put me back there again. For anyone who missed it or fans who want to relive it I definitely recommend it. As close to the real thing that you'll get. Enjoy."

After a fantastic performance at 2017’s Penrith Wannasee we’re delighted to welcome the guys back in 2019.

“You should check them out” Brandon Flowers on The Fillers, April 18th 2009

Since late 2006 in the era of Sam’s Town, from the small town of Bury St.Edmunds (Suffolk’s very own Las Vegas), The Fillers emerged to be the world’s first tribute band to The Killers.

Based in a country where The Killers came to fruition they capture the sound look and feel of the Vegas quartet, performing tracks from Hot Fuss, Sam’s Town, Sawdust, Day & Age, BattleBorn and Wonderful Wonderful.

Not only do The Killers know about them, but members of the band have played with them and they’ve been given unprecedented access to their workings, to give them the ability to recreate a Killers show as closely as possible. The attention to details is crazy right down to extending to using only the best equipment.

The Fillers have played extensively around the world including such locations as the U.S.A, Ireland, Spain, Dominican Republic, The Netherlands, Italy, Channel Islands and Mexico, filling in for The Killers. They’ve played to audiences of up to 35,000 people on stages frequented by the real band and continue to expand, as The Killers establish themselves as one of the world’s biggest bands.

You’re in for a real treat.
