Daniel Craig hangs with The Killers at Music Midtown

When The Killers walked on stage Sunday night for the closing set of Music Midtown 2016, the familiar guitar strains of the James Bond theme blared from the speakers.

Some may have thought that the Las Vegas band enjoys a good Bond flick and that the British guy who introduced them was a well-toned road manager.

But nope – it was Daniel Craig, the most recent Bond, who is in Atlanta filming “Logan Lucky.” The actor, who is sporting tattoos and a blonde buzz cut for the role, is apparently a big fan of the band and attended Music Midtown on Sunday specifically to see them (the introduction was apparently a last-minute decision).
