The Killers have covered U2’s classic ‘Where The Streets Have No Name’ at their recent concert - have a watch up top.
The band’s Connecticut gig happened on St Patrick’s Day (March 17), where frontman Brandon Flowers told the crowd that the band wanted to perform a U2 song.
“Do you know why we celebrate St Patrick’s Day?” began Flowers.
“We bring with us an Irishman everywhere we go. He’s been doing lights for us for about 17 years, Steven Douglas. Where are you at, Steven?” he said, trying to spot the lighting designer.
He continued: “But even long before we had met Steven, we all love U2, and they had the little album called ‘The Joshua Tree‘. We thought, since that’s sort of the common denominator of this band, you know, we all can agree that U2…” he walks towards other members of the band.
“We’re all agreed upon U2, fellas?
“That was one of the bands that we all came together on when we first started … I’ll stop talking now, but we’re gonna do a little tribute to Christianity coming to Ireland and U2 singing about unity here tonight.”
The band launched into U2’s ‘Where The Streets Have No Name.’
It’s not the first time they’re covered U2 either. Previously, they’ve performed covers of ‘With or Without You,’ ‘Ultra Violet (Light My Way),’ and ‘Pride (In The Name Of Love).’
