During the show, Springsteen came on stage to perform the pair’s 2021 collaboration ‘Dustland’ as well as his hits ‘Badlands’ and ‘Born To Run’, joined by his bandmate Jake Clemons, the saxophonist nephew of the late and legendary E Street Band member Clarence Clemons.
“That’s a hell of a band,” Springsteen told Flowers of his admiration of The Killers and their live show in 2020. “Recently when I caught you, it may have been Glastonbury, the band was so good. You guys have developed such an incredible live show. Really something to be proud of.”
Watch them run through the hits at MSG below.
Across their current US tour, The Killers have been welcoming a number of special guests to the stage. When the tour kicked off in August, support act Johnny Marr joined The Killers to perform Smiths classics, while the first night at Madison Square Garden (September 30) welcomed a mini Smiths reunion, with bassist Andy Rourke joining Marr to perform ‘There Is A Light That Never Goes Out’ and ‘How Soon Is Now?’.
The Killers’ US tour with Johnny Marr continues tomorrow (October 3) at Boston’s TD Garden and runs until mid-October where it wraps up with a Washington D.C. show.
