Liam Gallagher, former Oasis frontman, wasn’t able to finish his set at the Lollapalooza Chile festival on Sunday due to a chest infection. This also meant that the audience didn’t get to hear him sing Oasis’ classic “Wonderwall,” since Gallagher usually closes his live shows with the song. But The Killers, who took the stage later, were there to save the day.
During their concerts, The Killers make a habit of covering songs of artists from the local area or those who didn’t make it to the festival. Knowing that the fans wanted to hear “Wonderwall,” they decided to deliver.
“We heard you missed out on a couple of songs you wanted to hear,” said the band’s frontman Brandon Flowers. “Before I sing this song, I would first like to say that Liam Gallagher is my king, is one of my kings.”

Lollapalooza Chile was held on 16–18 March 2018, with The Killers, Pearl Jam, Lana Del Rey, Red Hot Chili Peppers among the headliners.
Lollapalooza Argentina was also underway at the same time, featuring the same line-up. However, due to severe weather, Argentina’s edition of the festival had to be cut short by a day, with LCD Soundsystem, Pearl Jam, the National, and David Byrne being among the artists who didn’t get to take the stage.
