“I think we need some rock,” host RIta Ora proclaimed in the waning moments of the 2017 MTV EMAs. The evening already included a pre-recorded U2 performance and a Thirty Seconds to Mars acceptance speech from Jared Leto, but the Killers assured the SSE Arena crowd got a live rendition of their latest hit single.
“The Man” came to life, with frontman Brandon Flowers sounding on-point and confident, backed by a trio of female vocalists to add to the song’s flashy choruses. The disco-influenced track comes from the Killers’ 2017 album Wonderful Wonderful, released back on Sept. 22 on Island Records.
