Last week, Killers’ frontman Brandon Flowers welcomed Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde on stage to perform her group’s 1986 single, “Don’t Get Me Wrong” and his own song, “Between Me And You” while performing at the O2 Arena in Brixton.
After many rumors and eventually a confirmation thanks to people present at the rehearsals, Flowers continued this by bringing New Order frontman, Bernard Sumner on stage to cover the New Order’s “Bizarre Love Triangle” at the Manchester Academy.
Watch the complete video of performance here.
This is not the first time Flowers has covered the song, he did so back in 2009 with The Killers. This also isn’t the first time Flowers has performed with Sumner; they performed together back in 2005 and many times after. The different with this performance is that it’s the first time Flowers has played with anyone from the 80s group since he revealed earlier this month that he was recording with them for their new album.
Lucky fans yesterday in Manc 🙂 Thanks for this post!
Agreed. It would be awesome if he brings a special guest on stage at each one of his upcoming tour stops. I, honestly, would secretly be hoping for Bernard at my tour stop.
That would be amazing! But Manc is always a “special place” Im going to Berlin and Brussels and Im curious who he can invite 😉 Where is your tour stop?
I know which is such a bummer for anyone who can’t make it there 😦
I actually live in Miami, FL so my tour stop would be the Miami Beach date in August.
