See the Las Vegas rockers play their first London show in four years at Hyde Park on Saturday.

The Killers played an epic headline show at Hyde Park, London on Saturday (8 July) marking their first gig in the capital since 2013.

Addressing the 65,000 strong crowd, frontman Brandon Flowers said: "Can you believe its been four years? We need to be reacquainted with each other.”

Kicking off with their The Man single, Brandon Flowers and co. played a crowd-pleasing and career-spanning set, while treating loyal fans to some of their lesser-known tracks.

The Las Vegas outfit surprised audiences with This River Is Wide- a nod to the fact their Sam's Town album celebrated its 10th anniversary last October. 

They also performed a cover of Joy Division's Shadowplay, which features on their b-sides and rarities album, Sawdust.

Watch them perform Jenny Was A Friend Of Mine:

Taking time to enjoy the moment, Brandon Flowers cued a picture of every British Summer Time headliner, showing their date as the only one to have a "SOLD OUT" stamp on it.
