Last night in Manchester, Bernard Sumner joined the Killers for a rendition of the 2001 New Order hit “Crystal.” The song’s video featured a fictional band called “the Killers” instead of the members of New Order themselves. The Killers famously took their name from the fictional band in the “Crystal” video and have admitted the tremendous influence New Order has had on their music. This isn’t the first time that Brandon Flowers has played with New Order. Love or hate the Killers, this is a pretty fun rendition of “Crystal.” Hat tip to my friend Victoria for sending me this video by YouTube user “TheNanu1:”
Fun fact: the members of the Killers met at an Oasis gig in Las Vegas. The more you know!
