Late last month, The Killers were joined on stage by New Order‘s Bernard Sumner during their gig at The O2 in London.

Playing their second consecutive night at the capital’s huge arena venue, The Killers first performed a cover of Joy Division‘s ‘Shadowplay’ before later being joined by Sumner during the encore for a rendition of the 1986 New Order track ‘Bizarre Love Triangle’.
