London, Feb 20 (ANI): Brit rock band Coldplay and American rock band The Killers staged an all-star gig on February 18 night, with Bono and Take That frontman Gary Barlow making a surprise appearance at the one-off charity concert.

Barlow and U2′’s Bono to the stage.

Martin and Barlow duetted on Take That classic Back for Good before Bono and Flowers came out to join the pair on The Killers” 2005 hit All These Things That I”ve Done. (ANI)
