The Fillers are the world’s first and best tribute to "The Killers" Formed in late 2006 in the era of Sam's Town around the small town of Bury St. Edmunds and based in a country where The Killers had their initial success. Having interacted with the actual band at close quarters we’ve captured the sound look and feel of the Vegas quartet, performing tracks from Hot Fuss, Sam's Town, Sawdust, Day & Age, Battleborn and Wonderful Wonderful.
“You should check them out!” Brandon Flowers.
Kazabian are the official and number one tribute act to the mighty Kasabian, endorsed by the real thing and touring extensively around Britain and Europe.
