WATCH: The Killers Cover Tom Petty at Austin City Limits

October 9, 2017

Over the weekend, The Killers headlined night three of Austin City Limits. And as their Sunday night set came less than a week after the passing of rock icon Tom Petty, The Killers paid tribute to the legend with two amazing covers.

First, the band opened with a performance of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ classic “American Girl,” followed by a cover of “The Waiting” later in the night.

The ACL music festival takes place during two consecutive weekends in Austin, Texas’ Zilker Park, so The Killers will be back for a second performance next Sunday, October 15.

In other Killers news, they dropped their latest album, Wonderful Wonderful, on September 22, and you can grab a copy here.
