The Killers played their new single ‘The Man’ live during a Glastonbury secret set today (Sunday, June 25).

The US band surprised fans with a packed-out set at the John Peel stage this afternoon.

Halfway through the set, the group played their new track with frontman Brandon Flowers dedicating it to “the ladies” in the crowd.


Watch below:

The Killers played the following songs:

  1. When You Were Young
  2. Somebody Told Me
  3. Spaceman
  4. Human
  5. Smile Like You Mean It
  6. The Man
  7. Glamorous Indie Rock & Roll
  8. Read My Mind
  9. Runaways
  10. All These Things That I’ve Done
  11. Mr. Brightside

Walking out to ‘Teenage Kicks’ by The Undertones (the famed favourite song of the late DJ Peel), Flowers joked: “They say you play the John Peel Stage twice in your career, once on the way up and once on the way down. It’s good to be back.”

Flowers had recently spoken coyly of the prospect of the band playing a surprise set at Glastonbury, saying: “I think we’re in Athens the day before, so I don’t even know if it’s possible. It’s a whole lotta – I mean it’s across the water”.
