The headliners at Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage delivered for the second night running as The Killers played a set that ticked every box for their fans – including some they didn’t even know they had.
While they couldn’t hope to match the power or significance of Stormzy’s stunning Friday night performance, the Brandon-Flowers fronted indie band gave their audience a string of crowd-pleasing hits ending, of course, with a rendition of Mr Brightside that everyone joined in with.
But in an otherwise predictable set it was the two tracks before that closing number that brought the surprises – in the form of some very familiar guest artists.
First up, Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe of Pet Shop Boys joined Flowers and co on stage, for renditions of their 1987 cover version hit You Were Always On My Mind, and Human.
They then swapped out for The Smiths guitar legend Johnny Marr, who played This Charming Man as the dapper Flowers sang.
And then it was time for the inevitable sing-along finale, The Killers’ 2003 smash hit Mr Brightside. Job done.
Here’s a look at the full setlist, which you can watch on BBC iPlayer now.
