    Amidst the already stacked lineup, Glastonbury 2017 had yet another trick up its sleeve: On Sunday, The Killers performed a secret set on the festival’s legendary John Peel Stage.

    In front of a capacity crowd, the Las Vegas alt-rockers ran through an unannounced, 10-song set featuring a handful of their greatest hits. There was Sam’s Town’s “When You Were Young” and “Read My Mind”; “Spaceman” and “Human” off 2008’s Day & Age; and, of course a string of tracks taken from classic debut album Hot Fuss, including “Somebody Told Me”, “Smile Like You Mean It”, and “Mr. Brightside”. Brandon Flowers & co. also previewed their long-awaited new LP, Wonderful Wonderful, with lead single “The Man”.

    “It’s good to be here,” Flowers told the crowd (via The Telegraph). “They say you play the John Peel Stage twice in your career – once on the way up, and once on the way down.” In the past, acts such as Bruce Springsteen, Mumford and Sons, Florence and the Machine, Calvin Harris, The xx, and The Black Keys have graced John Peel.
