The Killers close T in the Park with Travis and Joy Division covers
The last day at Scotland's biggest music festival also saw sets from Frank Ocean and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs
The Killers closed Scotland's biggest music festival last night, with a career-spanning set which included Travis and Joy Division covers.
The impressive T in the Park line-up also boasted Rihanna, Mumford & Sons and Snoop Dogg.
The Killers opened their set with first-album classic "Somebody Told Me," before rattling through towards an encore of "When You Were Young" and crowd pleaser "Mr Brightside".
Perhaps as a nod to their British hosts - and influences - the Las Vegas band played "Shadowplay" by Joy Division and "Side" by Travis.
Before playing the Travis song, recalling the band's early days playing Las Vegas bars and cafes, singer Brandon Flowers told the crowd: "We used to play acoustic nights. We'd play 'Under The Gun', 'Mr Brightside' and this next song. Travis gave us hope."
Earlier in the day, crowds were entertained by R&B hero Frank Ocean and indie rock veterans The Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
