The Killers Bring Out Pet Shop Boys And Johnny Marr During Glastonbury Headline Slot - Music News
The Killers brought out the Pet Shop Boys and Johnny Marr during their Glastonbury headline slot on Saturday (29.06.19).

The rock band - whose lead singer is Brandon Flowers - delivered a dynamic two-hour set before the memorable encore, which featured the Pet Shop Boys playing a cover of Elvis's 'Always On My Mind'.

British rocker Johnny Marr was also warmly welcomed by the huge crowd on Worthy Farm, where he performed a version of 'This Charming Man', 35 years after The Smiths' own Glastonbury gig.

During the performance, Brandon told the crowd: "They say never meet your heroes, but I say that went over alright."

Brandon, 38, also dedicated a song to his late mother Jean, who died of cancer in 2010, aged 64.

The singer - who sang an emotional version of 'A Dustland Fairytale' - said: "We wrote this next song a million miles from here.

"We're a long way from home tonight. But you know, home isn't always a place. Home is a person. Looking back at my childhood home was my mother. And her light went out too soon.

"There isn't a grave deep enough, there isn't a grave dark enough to keep her light out of my life."

The performance was also marked by an unlikely appearance from British stand-up comedian Jimmy Carr, who appeared on stage and pretended to be a roadie for the band.

The Killers' set concluded with a performance of 'Mr Brightside', one of the group's best-known tracks that had been trending on Twitter prior to the encore.
