What sets The Kopycat Killers apart is their uncanny resemblance to the real deal. Lead singer Stuart Rook sounds so much like Brandon Flowers that he’s been sought out by producers to sing remixes with over two billion combined YouTube and Spotify streams. Their attention to detail is impeccable, replicating The Killers’ authentic tones and studio sounds to perfection.

But it’s not just about imitation; The Kopycat Killers bring their own energy and passion to the stage, creating an atmosphere that rivals The Killers themselves. As devoted fans, they take the task of recreating The Killers’ brilliant songs and extraordinary shows very seriously.

Reviews from fans and live performances speak volumes, with fans  stating: “I’ve seen the Killers 50 times now in 9 different countries, and honestly, The Kopycat Killers were so brilliant… I’m still feeling blown away by how amazing it was”, and “I wouldn’t even describe these guys as a tribute act; it doesn’t do them justice. They were ace, very slick. Will definitely catch them again.”
