Euan McLelland - 15 July 2013

This is how it should be done.

Brandon Flowers' scent appears instantly entices the crowd. How can you not lay yourself bare when the first song is 'Somebody Told Me'.

'Spaceman' garners as much enthusiasm - testament to the quality the Las Vegas' band poured into one their more recent offings, 'Day and Age'.

The thousands have had their breath already taken away, if not by the music but by the near-perfect Flowers, looking genuinely awestruck by the incessant, adoring response of the crowd.

'The Way It Was' incorporates even the uninterested Killers support into their near full brood, with their dedication to the county - "Andy Murray is on a roll" - curling a delicate smile out of the majestic, over-awed Flowers. Loving it, he knows the remainder of the set includes those moments by the bucketload.

Joy Division's 'Shadowplay' provides this begging crowd their first sort of anthem relief, but that doesn't last the night.

Their cover of Tiffany's 'I Think We're Alone Now' gets even more from the crowd. This is unbridled, confident and assured - three assets void of the weekender's two earlier headliners.

'All These Things That I've Done', 'When You Were Young' and 'Mr Brightside' are a fitting finale to a fantastic headline set and an unforgettable 20th birthday bash for T In The Park.
