It isn't the first time the comedian has shared a stage with the US band

Comedian Jimmy Carr was spotted filming The Killers‘ surprise set at Glastonbury on his phone while watching from side stage.

The US band played a surprise set to a packed-out John Peel stage earlier on Sunday (June 25), performing classic hits as well as new single ‘The Man’. See photos from their triumphant set here.

During the set, fans took to social media to report about how Carr was watching the band from side of the stage. “Is that Jimmy Carr grinning like a Cheshire Cat on stage filming the Killers during their Glastonbury set?”, one fan asked on Twitter.

It’s not the first time Carr has shared a stage with the band, with The Killers bringing him out at V Festival in 2014.

Brandon Flowers has spoken about being friends with Carr in the past:

Celebrities watching from side of the stage has been a common theme at Glastonbury this year, with Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp watching Jeremy Corbyn’s speech and David Beckham watching Foo Fighters.

Meanwhile, during their surprise Glastonbury set frontman Brandon Flowers joked: “They say you play the John Peel Stage twice in your career, once on the way up and once on the way down. It’s good to be back.”

  2. Somebody Told Me
  3. Spaceman

  5. Smile Like You Mean It
  6. The Man
  7. Glamorous Indie Rock & Roll
