The Killers Pay Tribute to Lou Reed

30 Oct

Just like we reported yesterday, many bands and artists have been playing tribute to the late Lou Reed by performing some of his songs during set at their shows. Just yesterday, the Arctic Monkeys channeled Reed while they performed his 1972 song, “Walk on the Wild Side.”

Today, another band has joined that list, The Killers.

During their show in their hometown of Las Vegas, the band honored the late Velvet Underground singer by performing his song, “Pale Blue Eyes” just hours after news had spread about his sudden death at his home in Southampton, NY.

The Killers’ frontman, Brandon Flowers admitted, during the show, that when he had written their hit song, “All These Things That I’ve Done” from their debut album, Hot Fuss, he was trying to rip-off Reed.

In 2007, Reed and the Killers worked together on a song titled, “Tranquillize” which made it onto the band’s compilation album; Reed contributed vocals to the song.

For now, watch the Las Vegas band cover the Velvet Underground’s “Pale Blue Eyes” below.
