The Killers have joined the long list of bands to have paid tribute to Lou Reed this week - at a recent show in their hometown of Las Vegas, the guys covered the Velvet Underground's "Pale Blue Eyes." Thanks to a front-row fan, you can check out pretty good-quality video and audio of the performance. According to a Vegas paper, Brandon Flowers also confessed at the show that "All These Things That I've Done" was the product of his "trying to rip off" Reed'sTransformer - "It all went horribly wrong and became this damn song." Check out the video below - it's a lovely cover, but those security guards do not look enthused.
