Killer Instinct, Scotland’s #1 tribute to The Killers, are returning to Paisley for a full-length performance of Killers classics. Killer Instinct’s lead singer sounds so much like the real thing that it’s difficult to tell he’s not the real thing. The bands attention to detail is impressive, their songs feature the authentic tones that make that ‘Killers’ sound. They even have the Killers famous ‘K’ keyboard style stand. The musicianship, energy, and the atmosphere created by them is key to their stage show.
