The Killers honoured late rock legend Lou Reed on the night he died by singing one of his hits at a gig in Las Vegas.

The Velvet Underground star passed away in October (13) at the age of 71 after a battle with liver disease, and The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers, who duetted with Reed on a 2007 track called Tranquilize, admits he was devastated by the loss.

The band was booked to play a show in their native Las Vegas on the day Reed died, so Flowers honoured his hero by adding The Velvet Underground's 1969 track Pale Blue Eyes to the setlist at the last minute.

He tells Britain's Daily Mail, "Spending time with Lou was surreal because of the folklore that surrounds him. We were scared to death, but he was sweet, and great to work with. The night he died, we played a show in Las Vegas and sang Pale Blue Eyes in tribute."
