The Killers Recruiting Tyson For Festivals?
Rockers The Killers have approached boxer Mike Tyson to duet with them at two music festivals this summer (08).
The band first met up with the former undisputed heavyweight champ when he made a surprise cameo in their video acceptance speech for the Best International Band prize at the U.S. NME Awards in February (08).
And after a night of karaoke with the boxing great in Las Vegas, the Mr. Brightside hitmakers are desperate to perform with him when they appear at Britain's Reading and Leeds festivals later this year (08).
Drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. says, "We were all hogging the karaoke space. Then in walks Mike. You could just tell he was up for a bit of karaoke. He just had that look in his eye. So it was kinda love at first sight.
"Me and Mike did I Wanna Dance With Somebody by Whitney Houston and then shared a plate of Asian delicacies. All of that is true."
