The Killers appear backstage at the MTV Europe Music Awards in Copenhagen, Denmark, on Nov. 2, 2006, where they were nominated as Best Rock Act.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas has tapped Las Vegas native Brandon Flowers and other musicians to help open the new Strip resort on Dec. 15.

The Killers frontman will perform songs from his new album “Flamingo” at Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool at 10 p.m. on opening night. The show will also be broadcast live on the Strip through the resort’s 65-foot digital marquee.

Also performing on Dec. 15 will be Mayer Hawthorne, Beats Antique and Australian sisters Liv and Mim Nevro, known as Nevro. The musicians will each perform at separate entertainment venues throughout the night beginning at 8 p.m.

The performers, with the exception of Flowers, with perform twice a night through Dec. 18.

“This entertainment experience is an indication of what’s to come,” Cosmopolitan Chief Executive John Unwin said.

The opening night performances will be followed by an unlikely pair of musicians, Coldplay and Jay-Z, on New Year’s Eve for the $3.9 billion resort’s grand opening celebration.
