Image caption Johnny Marr stuck around to play Mr Brightside as The Killers closed their set. The Killers had already played a triumphant, two-hour set before the encore, opening with the powerful one-two punch of Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine and Somebody Told Me, both from their debut album Hot Fuss. Flowers was, as ever, a restless frontman - straddling the monitors and flitting between his keyboard and the microphone stand as he worked the audience into a frenzy.
Amazing: Johnny Marr then took to the stage to perform his version of This Charming Man - 35 years after The Smiths' only Glastonbury show. Speaking about the new album Liam said: 'I wrote some songs on my own for the last album, but this time it's all co-writes. Reason being is I want it to be even better than As You Were. I know my strengths and I know my limitations. I'm an ok songwriter, but I'm a great singer and frontman. I want the second album to be a step-up because the hardest thing to do is to make something the same, only better. So that's what we've done
Brandon Flowers and company were joined by Pet Shop Boys for "Always On My Mind" and "Human," and they brought out Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr for "Mr. Brightside" and "This Charming Ma. Flowers also used a portion of the set to pay tribute to his late mother, who passed away in 2010 after a battle with cancer. We wrote this next song a million miles from here," he told the crowd while introducing "A Dustland Fairytale. We’re a long way from home tonight. What's this?! A hopboys and illers duet?
Johnny Marr is an institution now- and institutions are supposed to stay in the same place, right where we left them, until they topple over. Marr (hopefully) has a long way to go before that happens. So, now that his extended tenure as a gun for hire appears to have been put on hold, he's set about making his first proper solo record, The Messenger. As Marr recently told Pitchfork, The Messenger was consciously crafted to appeal to his old fans. I wanted it to sound effortless, not like I was trying to reinvent the wheel," he said. The guitar tones on this record are fantastic- which is to say, they instantly bring to mind the dense, intricate, and yet lightly airy riffs that Marr strummed over Morrissey's asexual witticisms in the mid-1980s. European Me" is manna for Marr obsessives, opening with a stuttering six-string barrage that quickly blossoms into a wondrous expanse of chiming Rickenbackers.

They say never meet your heroes but I think that went over alright. Speaking to NME earlier in the day, Brandon Flowers and Ronnie Vannucci alluded to the fact that they would be bringing out some guests tonight (June 29) but wouldn’t reveal who because they didn’t want to ruin the surprise. Now the set’s over, it’s not a surprise anymore
See contact information and details about Johnny Marr. The early 1980s weren’t the best of times to be an aspiring guitar player. Twenty years earlier, the head of Decca records, Dick Rowe, had made the biggest A&R. gaff in pop history with the legendary clanger "Guitar groups are on their way out, Mr Epstein". But in 1982, Rowe’s apocalyptic prophecy suddenly sounded frighteningly real.
