Shortly after The Killers wrapped their Saturday night (Sept. 16) set at Asbury Park’s Sea. Hear. Now. Festival, front man Brandon Flowers strolled over to The Stone Pony for a jam with photographer and festival organizer Danny Clinch’s Tangiers Blues Band and E Street Band saxophonist Jake Clemons.
Clemons, Flowers, and Clinch on harp treated the audience to a cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “The Promised Land,” off of “Darkness on the Edge of Town.”
Earlier in the evening, Flowers paid homage to Springsteen with a tastefully done cover of “I’m on Fire” off “Born in the U.S.A.,” and performed “A Dustland Fairytale,” a track The Killers recorded with Springsteen.
Clemons surprised fans earlier in the day joining Asbury Park’s Ocean Avenue Stompers in a parade that traveled from the boardwalk through the festival.
“People that travel to see rock and roll shows are a special kind of people. They’re a dying breed,” Flowers observed before performing “Dying Breed,” the fourth single from their 2020 album Imploding the Mirage.
Sea. Hear. Now. entertained music fans over a two day period with performances by diverse lineup of artists Greta Van Fleet, Sheryl Crow, Royal Blood, Living Colour, The Beach Boys, Weezer and Foo Fighters.
The festival grounds were located at North Beach and Bradley Park, Asbury Park waterfront, 300 Ocean Ave.
