Brandon Flowers of the Killers was at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony Saturday night to induct The Cars, a band he told Rolling Stone was, “the first band I fell in love with, and they set me on the right track.”

Flowers and the Killers are also big Tom Petty fans and have been performing ‘American Girl’ and ‘Free Fallin’ in tribute to Petty at their shows since Petty passed away in 2017. So it made perfect sense for the Rock Hall to chose the band to open the induction ceremony in honor of Tom Petty.
