New Order's Bernard Sumner appeared on stage with The Killers in Manchester this week, performing his song 'Crystal' with the band. Scroll down to watch the footage.

The Killers were performing a rescheduled date from their November 2012 tour, on which Brandon Flowers fell ill. As the band came out for their encore, they were joined by Sumner who played guitar and sang with the band. "We've got a little treat for you everybody, I don't know if you know this or not but we took our name from a New Order video. It was from the song called 'Crystal'. We're going to play it for you tonight with the illustrious and praiseworthy Bernard Sumner." Scroll down to see footage of the live performance now.

Elsewhere in the gig, The Killers ended their song 'A Dustland Fairytale' by playing an excerpt of Oasis' single 'Don't Look Back In Anger'.

Further proving their Anglophile credentials, The Killers quoted The Smiths upon first delaying their Manchester dates in November 2012. After ending one gig midway through and pulling the next night's performance, the band took to their Facebook page to deliver an official statement, in which they quoted The Smiths' 1987 single 'I Started Something I Couldn't Finish' as well as alluding to Morrissey's 'Suedehead', as part of the apology. The band wrote: "Manchester, we started something we couldn't finish and we're so, so sorry. Working on rescheduling tonight and tomorrow's shows. Will let you know new dates ASAP."

The Killers will be back in the UK this Summer when they headline Scotland's T In The Park festival alongside Mumford And Sons and Rihanna.
