The Killers have given fans a peek at their rock'n'roll lifestyle by showing off pictures of their private jet.

The band's bass player Mark Stoermer posted the above photograph of their private jet on Instagram earlier today (June 25), alongside the caption, "Off we go". The band now play a number of European dates, before heading back to the UK to head up T In The Park festival next month.

On Saturday (June 22) The Killers rushed from their triumphant Wembley Stadium gig to play a tiny club show at The Garage in Islington, north London. The show, announced at 8pm [BST] via Twitter, saw the band play 40 minutes of rarities and hits to a crowd of 800, having raced across town from playing to 70,000, where they played a brand new track, 'Wembley Song', written especially for the show.

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.
