The Killers will headline the VMworld 2011 party.

Today’s announcement of The Killers as the VMworld 2011 party band makes up for several years of lackluster musical guests at the virtualization industry’s premier event. Foreigner headlined VMworld 2009, followed by INXS last year.

The Killers hail from Las Vegas, which, coincidentally or not, will host VMworld 2011. They’re most well known for their 2004 — That’s this century! Good job, VMware! — album Hot Fuss, which has sold more than 7 million copies thanks to hits such as “Somebody Told Me,” “Mr. Brightside,” and “All These Things That I’ve Done.” (Although “On Top” is the best song on the album. This is not up for debate.)

The VMworld 2011 party takes place Wednesday, Aug. 31 at 7 p.m.
