The Killers put their spin on two Tom Petty tracks as part of a tribute at the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony on Friday (14 April).
The singer-songwriter passed away on 2 October 2017, and the Las Vegas rockers helped pay tribute to him at the prestigious ceremony by playing his American Girl hit.
Watch The Killers rehearse his anthem above, in a video shared on their Instagram.
On the night itself, the Run For Cover rockers incorporated Petty's 1989 track Free Fallin' into the end of their rendition.
