The Killers performed with one of their biggest musical heroes, New Order’s Bernard Sumner, last week in the British group's hometown of England. 

"I don’t know if you know this or not, but we took our name from a New Order video," Brandon Flowers told the crowd. "I think they’re from here," he added, jokingly. 

Flowers brought out Sumner, introducing him as "the illustrious and praise-worthy Sheriff of Manchester," and then they soared into "Crystal," from New Order's 2001 album Get Ready
