The Killers nailed a stirring cover of Oasis’s ‘Wonderwall’ this past weekend when they headlined Lollapalooza Chile, and it was quite the moment. “Before I sing this song, I would first like to say that Liam Gallagher is my king—he’s one of my kings. This is in no way meant to disparage anything that he did.” said Brandon Flowers.
The song was dedicated to Gallagher according to NME, due to him being forced to cut his own set at the festival short because of a severe chest infection. Now Gallagher cut his Lolla set here in Chicago short for reasons, that we are still trying to figure out. More on that here.
Kudos to the Killers who have done this wondeful gesture in the past when another beloved band gets taken off stage at a fest due to uncontrollable circumstances. Last year’s Lolla in Chicago, the dusty sons of Nevada gave Muse fan’s a treat with this cover after the UK band was forced off stage the previous night by a storm. Watch that here.
