As with their previous gigs in the UK so far, the Las Vegas rockers kicked off their set with My Own Soul's Warning before launching into Enterlude, When You Were Young, Jenny Was A Friend of Mine and Smile Like You Mean It.
It was a night of firsts, with The Killers not just playing their first night at the Arsenal ground, but also choosing to give their Pressure Machine track its live debut.
In another epic moment, the first of the tour, the band were joined on stage by a fan, who drummed to For Reasons Unknown as Ronnie Vannucci Jr. played guitar.
When it came to covers, two was the magic number, with the band playing Joy Division's Shadowplay (a setlist mainstay) and Ewan MacColl & Peggy Seeger cover The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, which has been given a healthy airing this tour so far.
Playing 24 tracks in total, the band chose to end their set on not one, but TWO rousing versions of Mr. Brightside, bringing their first gig in London to a feverish crescendo.
