Watch exclusive footage from Johnny Marr’s US tour with The Killers

Johnny Marr supported the Killers on their US tour earlier this year – see exclusive footage from the series of shows on NME first below.

During the long tour that began in August, Marr often joined the Killers on stage, and at Madison Square Garden in New York he was joined by his Smiths bandmate Andy Rourke during his own performance. Together they performed the songs “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out” and “How Soon Is Now”.

In Seattle, he took the stage with The Killers to perform Smiths songs ‘There Is A Light That Never Goes Out’ and ‘What She Said’, before helping the Killers close the set with ‘Mr. Brightside’, which he also performed with during their Glastonbury 2019 headline set.

Following the tour’s conclusion, Marr has shared a series of exclusive behind-the-scenes photos with NME, which you can view below. Check out exclusive footage of The Killers’ two nights at Madison Square Garden with Johnny Marr here, with those shows including appearances by Bruce Springsteen and bandmate Jake Clemons, cameoing for three songs including performances of ‘Dustland’, ‘Badlands’ , and ‘Born To Run’.
