Invited by U.S. President Barack Obama, the band played on the White House South Lawn on July 4, 2010 for the second annual “Salute To The Military” United Service Organizations concert as part of Independence Day celebrations, which Flowers described as a “monumental honor”. Despite their hiatus, the band got together to play “Human”, “Somebody Told Me”, “Mr. Brightside”, “A Dustland Fairytale”, “God Bless America/Read My Mind” and “When You Were Young”. Flowers, Keuning and Stoermer also played at a campaign rally on July 8, 2010 in Nevada for Obama and U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid who was up for re-election. The Killers played an acoustic version of “Read My Mind” and did a folksy rendition of the state song, “Home Means Nevada”. In February 2011, Flowers had a private lunch with Mitt Romney during Romney’s visit to the Republican Party convention in Nevada. In 2012, the band remained neutral in the election.
The song “Ultraviolet (Light My Way)” was covered by the Killers with proceeds benefiting famine-stricken areas.
