NEW ORDER were joined onstage by KILLERS frontman BRANDON FLOWERS during their triumphant headline set on the
NME/RADIO 1 stage tonight (July 9) at
T IN THE PARK.
Flowers joined the band for 2001 single ’Crystal’. The band in the video for the song were called The Killers.
The band also dedicated the Joy Division classic ’Atmosphere’ to the people of London after the recent bomb attacks on the city.
Bassist Peter Hook said: “There was just no need for that, no need for that at all.” He had earlier told NME.COM: ”It’s really scary. It shows what a rotten world we live in.”
He also praised Scottish audiences, saying: “They seem to love us, even after some of the dodgy shows we’ve played here! They don’t bottle us anyway.”
He also said the reason the band didn’t play ‘Blue Monday’ was down to actor pal Keith Allen, who had joined them onstage for footie anthem ‘World In Motion’. He laughed: “Yeah it was his fault. We always blame somebody else!”
The set was:
‘Waiting For The Sirens’ Call’
‘Bizarre Love Triangle’
‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’
‘She’s Lost Control’
