The Killers paid tribute to legendary crooner Andy Williams during a concert on Wednesday night (September 26th) by performing a rendition of his classic song Moon River. The band took to the stage at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles just a day after the veteran entertainer had sadly passed away at the age of 84 following a year-long battle with bladder cancer and, in a nod to the late star, frontman Brandon Flowers serenaded the crowd with the band's own take on the Oscar-winning song.

This isn't the first time that the Mr. Brightside hit makers had performed the seminal Williams track; indeed they first played it last year at London's Hard Rock Calling festival, but it took on a special reverence last night in the wake of the passing of one of the most recognisable voices in music. Williams had been allowed home to Branson, where he'd lived for many years, by doctors in July, so that he could be allowed to spend his final days in familiar surroundings.

The star was at his commercial peak in the 50s and 60s when, in addition to his singing career, he also enjoyed a slot on American TV between 1959 and 1971 where he hosted a weekly variety show.
