    The Killers closed out Saturday night at Glastonbury with an emotional, guest-heavy headlining performance.

    The band’s 20-song set featured a number of notable moments, including a tribute to frontman Brandon Flowers’ mother, who passed away from cancer in 2011. Prior to performing “A Dustland Fairytale”, Flowers said, “We wrote this next song a million miles from here. We’re a long way from home tonight. But you know, home isn’t always a place. Home is a person. Looking back at my childhood home was my mother. And her light went out too soon. There isn’t a grave deep enough, there isn’t a grave dark enough to keep her light out of my life.”

    Later, during their encore, The Killers welcomed both Pet Shop Boys and Johnny Marr to the stage. Pet Shop Boys joined the band for “You Were Always on My Mind” and “Human”. Marr then stepped onto stage for a cover of The Smiths’ “This Charming Man” and The Killers’ own “Mr. Brightside”.
