The Killers Cover Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy’ at V Festival in England
While performing at England’s massive V Festival on Saturday (Aug. 16), the Killers decided to join the likes of Arcade Fire and Jack White in the ever-expanding world of cover songs. For a little less than 60 seconds, lead singer Brandon Flowers, while behind his keyboard, sang his version of the massive hit from Iggy Azalea, ‘Fancy.’ You can watch fan-filmed footage of the cover in the video above.
After asking the crowd if they’re all right, Flowers says, “[We’ve] sort of been working on something. We wanted to show you a little bit of it if you don’t mind hearing it.” As he started playing the keys to the yet-unveiled tune, drummer Ronnie Vannucci, Jr. stepped out from behind his kit and began a hilarious interpretive dance.
While the cover was short, Flowers did put his personal stamp on it: instead of the original lyrics, “I’m in the fast lane / From L.A. to Tokyo,” he sang, “I’m in the fast lane / From Las Vegas to Staffordshire,” referencing his band’s hometown and the festival’s location, respectively.
The Killers’ remaining tour stops, according to their website, are the Glasgow Summer Sessions on Aug. 19 and Tennent’s Vital in Ireland on Aug. 21. Get details here.
