American rock brand The Killers produced an incredible transition from England's Euro 2024 semi final win to Mr Brightside at their gig on Wednesday.

The group, fronted by Brandon Flowers, played in front of thousands of fans at the O2 Arena.

It was the fifth of six gigs at the London venue but for this one there was a huge dilemma.

Fans had purchased tickets ages ago but had the unfortunate realisation that the show clashed with England's crunch Euro 2024 clash with the Netherlands.

However, what followed was a stunning plan to ensure everyone in attendance could watch England make history again.

And the final moments were played on the big screen at the O2 Arena, as fans anxiously waited to see if England would get over the line.

Gareth Southgate's side did just that and then, when the final whistle sounded and there was an eruption of cheers, The Killers made the moment even sweeter.

They immediately pivoted into playing 'Mr Brightside', their greatest ever hit, as the crowd went mental.

Videos showed the incredible scenes and atmosphere created. Flowers and the rest of the band had joined fans in watching the final moments on the screen, with drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr sporting an England shirt.

The band's official X account posted a series of pictures, with the caption: "Tonight we played for England".

Mr Brightside is a UK dancefloor classic and has now been in the charts on these shores for nearly eight years straight.

It's the longest-running song in the UK singles and the band never get bored of it.

"It’s infectious still to us, I know some people can’t wrap their head around it but you’ll see the response [when you see it live]," Flowers told the Guinness World Record.

“It’s tough not to be touched by it or be excited by it and there’s going to be people tonight who’ve never seen it live, there’ll be some people who’ve seen it 45 times.

“And we just don’t get tired of it.”
