The band talk to NME.COM after massive crowds watch their show and visit the NME Signing Tent to meet the lads...

THE KILLERS wowed fans at V FESTIVAL this afternoon (August 21) – drawing massive crowds to both their mid-afternoon set and their appearance at the NME SIGNING TENT.

The band played on the NME Stage, on a bill that also includes Keane, Elbow, Embrace and Kings Of Leon.

During their set, the band showcased songs from their hit album ’Hot Fuss’, including ’Smile Like You Mean It’, ’Somebody Told Me’ and ‘Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine’.

Some fans brought with them a giant banner bearing the band’s name made out of CDs. Speaking to NME.COM backstage, singer Brandon Flowers said the show had been one of their best festival experiences so far.

He said: “It was the sunniest show we’ve ever played! I heard there was a massive banner, I liked it! The best song was ’All These Things That I’ve Done’. Leaving with ’All These Things That I’ve Done’.”

The singer said that he was looking forward to the band’s opportunity to meet their fans at the NME Signing Tent, but hoped there would be no repeat of the earlier scenes at Weston Park when BRMC stormed off after a fan asked for an inflatable penis to be signed.

He laughed: “There’s always some skin and hats and wallets! I don’t think I would sign (an inflatable penis). I’m with them on that!”
