A maniacal Santa Claus, played by former tour manager Ryan Pardey, singles out the band as being the naughtiest of the naughty, despite their best efforts to get on the “nice” list.
St. Nick, incensed by the thought of the band bestowing children with music and spreading their message of joy, becomes enraged and goes after the band with a serial killer-like thirst for blood. No Rudolf here, Santa gives up his reindeer and cookies for a Harley and a cigar. After forging his own weapons from steel, he heads out on the road to settle the score.
The Killers’ “I Feel It In My Bones” is available now via iTunes and benefits the (RED) AIDS charity.
The Las Vegas rockers will play the San Francisco’s Live 105 holiday concert, Not So Silent Night, Saturday December 8th and Los Angeles’ KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas Sunday, December 9th at Universal City’s Gibson Amphitheater.
The band’s Los Angeles performance will be webcast Tuesday, December 11th at approximately 4PM PST. Watch to find out if Pardey reprises his role as jolly ‘ol St. Nick. Follow @kroq on Twitter for details and exact set times.
