I live about 150 miles east of Chicago. The storm that resulted in the evacuation has just arrived here in the last hour or so. Heavy rain and lots of lightning. No way the festival organizers could risk keeping the crowd out in the open with all that lightning in the area.

The rain was great but they killed it once the lightning started. The storm passed after 20 minutes or so. Dom came back on stage and looked genuinely upset. I saw Chris stage left. I didn't see Matt or Morgan.

all should be good for tomorrow, tho, lol. may even be a bit chilly.
So relieved I was there the week before and didn't have the festival cancelled on me due to weather. But I do remember how a ton of bands and the promoters banded up with the local venues to do a ton of intimate shows. That was really cool of them.

When I was reading a story the Chicago Tribune about last night, they had quotes from a guy who'd flown all the way from Australia to see Muse's set. I'd be pretty fucking livid at the Gods of the weather in that scenario.

I've also seen a Tweet from Matt saying he hopes they get to play it again next year as a make-up for this incident.

The next festival they play in the US is Life Is Beautiful in Vegas, right? Would likely be the same set they would have played last night and zero chance of rain.

Since Muse got rained out, The Killers played Starlight for them which I thought was awesome. Two of my favorite bands. I think Flowers is an amazing vocalist but even he struggled with this one on parts, still a lovely tribute.

Yeah especially considering they must have slapped the song together within a day, quite good.

Brandon clearly didn't know the hand clap so obviously a fail.

I am really not a fan of The Killers, but that was a class move. And a pretty decent cover! Don't understand the hate, really. They did a nice thing to the band and the fans who were not lucky enough to hear them.

Is it getting much hate? I don't rate the performance much at all tbh but I recognise it was more of a gesture than a genuine attempt to do a great cover so I've no problem with it.

It's a nice gesture from them, I thought it sounded pretty damn good given how little time they had.

The vocals were intriguing...Brandon Flowers has a wider chest range than Matt, right? I thought he'd sing it with relative ease even in the original key but it looked like a bit of a challenge for him.

My guess would be that it's simply not a song he's used to singing, so he doesn't really know how to approach it. Like here in the same gig: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emDTphfPKtc&t=38s Goes up to B4s (possibly C at times?) all over the place, but he's clearly using a very different technique from Matt, which is why he probably struggles with much lower notes in Starlight. Or it's just about how he sustains notes. I think he's pretty shaky in that regard in general, and Matt is all about sustained notes.
