Ed Sheeran takes over the Killers with Brandon Flowers

Music news

Ed Sheeran performed “ Mr. Brightside » from the Killers with Brandon Flowers in Las Vegas.

Ed Sheeran performed Saturday night in Las Vegas, hometown of the Killers, and so naturally added “ Mr. Brightside » to his list of songs. As a bonus, Brandon Flowers joined the performance.

There’s someone I want to bring over. He’s from Vegas said Sheeran, dressed as Chucky for the pre-Halloween concert at Allegiant Stadium. “ We are going to sing the song that is sort of the national anthem of my country “, a nod to the fact that ” Mr. Brightside ” was recently named the most streamed song in UK history.

After performing the classic Hot FussFlowers stayed on stage to help Sheeran perform his own song ” Castle on the Hill “. (This surprise collaboration more than made up for the fact that Saturday’s concert was postponed at the last minute, six weeks ago, due to technical problems).

The Vegas concert was the final North American date of the tour +-=÷x by Sheeran, who has already hosted surprise guests like Eminem, Busted, Shawn Mendes and others, as well as surprise stops at school recitals, Lego stores and Nashville karaoke bars (where, coincidentally, Sheeran also sang “ Mr. Brightside “).
