Watch: Bono, Brandon, and Chris, oh my!

Last week, O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London played host to a benefit concert in support of the newly released War Child: Heroes, and to probably no one’s surprise the event proved as jaw-dropping as the music found on the compilation album it was celebrating.

Take the below performance for example. From the onset, it’s evident something isn’t right. What weird alignment of planets or flux in the space time continuum has caused two of music’s most polarizing figures, Brandon Flowers and Chris Martin, to join forces – with their respective bands – for a performance of The Killers‘ “All These Things I’ve Done”? Don’t give me the charity excuse. That explanation flies out the window as soon as Bono emerges on stage to lend his vocal talents.

Yes, you read the above correctly. Brandon Flowers, Chris Martin, and Bono appear on stage, under the same roof, performing the same song, at the same time, and set aside their same enormous egos long enough to produce a rendition that is somewhat tolerable. I must be dreaming. Thank goodness David Bowie didn’t show up…
