Boy band, The Killers paid tribute to local musical band, The Alarm while performing in city of Wales. The Killers covered the band’s evergreen song, “Rain in the Summertime.” Meanwhile, Alarm’s frontier member, Mike Peters watched the whole cover from the crowd as a spectator.
The Killers performed The Alarm’s Rain In the Summertime
We have already seen a whale of bands, paying tributes to local champions of music on world tours. But this time, something very astounding happened when the artist that sculpted the song was present at the moment.
The Alarm’s Mike Peters joined the crowd to attend The Killer’s performing in their city. Nonetheless, he was unaware of the fact that they were gonna cover his own song on the stage.

The Alarm’s main lead and his other band-mates grew stunned while The Killer performed “Rain in the Summertime” on stage. It was their first show in the city of Wales after 2012. More than thousand people gathered on Cardiff’s Castle to catch a glimpse of the famous rock band after years.
Peter mentioned to media:
Somebody from the crowd stopped me for a picture when they played ‘Rain in the Summertime.’ So It didn’t quite click to me at first then everybody gave me a look. They started cheering and singing all along.
Who planned this surprise?
People praised Brandon for singing the song beautifully. They remarked him as a “great frontman” and “a man with a fabulous voice.”
They didn’t have to do it but the fact that they still did made me feel humbled, flattered and honored. I had no idea about them, playing the song.
The whole idea was pre-planned. The Plan was plotted by none other than Peter’s wife Julia. She spoke to The Killer’s manager and set all the things up. Indeed, she planted a great surprise for her husband.
