The Killers rushed from their triumphant Wembley Stadium debut gig to play a tiny club show at The Garage club in Islington, London last night (June 22).

The Garage show, announced at 8pm via Twitter, saw the band play 40 minutes of rarities and hits to a packed crowd of 800, having raced across town from playing to 70,000 fans at Wembley, where they played a brand new track, 'Wembley Song', written specially for the show.

The Wembley gig began with 'Enterlude', with frontman Brandon Flowers solo at the piano, then - as at the Isle Of Wight festival last weekend where they opened with ‘Mr Brightside’ - the band launched into one of their major hits, this time 'When You Were Young'. It kicked off a celebratory set full of fireworks and glitter cannons that included covers of Joy Division's 'Shadowplay' and 'I Think We’re Alone Now', made famous by Girls Aloud and Tiffany but originally by Ritchie Cordell – "tonight we’re stealing it back," Brandon said.

The aforementioned ‘Wembley Song’ traced The Killers’ career "from Dave’s apartment to Wembley", comically noting that early singles left us confused to find that the band were from Vegas "when you were sure it must be Sheffield or Camden". The song also listed bands that had played at Wembley previously, including Green Day, with Brandon admitting, "I said some shit, but that was the old me". You can watch fan-shot footage of the band playing the song below.

The Killers played:

'Enterlude'
'When You Were Young'
'Spaceman'
'The Way It Was'
'Smile Like You Mean It'
'This River Is Wild'

'Somebody Told Me'

The Killers then rushed to The Garage club in Islington where they took the stage at 1.40am to play a 40-minute set which included a smattering of rarely-played songs before rolling out the hits.
