After headlining Isle Of Wight Festival, the band played two intimate shows at London's York Hall, where they gave a stunning set to an VIP-filled crowd.
Watch them perform Rebellion (Lies) here:
The audience - which boasted celebrity guests in Woody Harrelson, Jude Law and LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy - were asked to turn on their phone torches for an infectious rendition of Reflektor.

Their encore also saw them lead the crowd in a chorus of "aahs" for Wake Up.

The We Used To Wait outfit also played Manchester's Castlefield Bowl as part of Sounds Of The City 2017.

A welcome surprise came in the form of a short cover of Joy Division's Love Will Tear Us apart, which came after their last track Neon Bible.
Watch it here:
The band thanked Manchester fans for not being "scared" to attend their show, referring to the recent Manchester terror attack, which saw 22 killed at an Ariana Grande concert in the city.
As NME reports, after performing their second song of the set, Rebellion (Lies), Butler told the crowd: “Thanks for not being scared. Thanks for being such a fucking inspiration to the rest of the world!”.
