Big Talk, a side project of Ronnie Vannucci of The Killers, returned to the Hard Rock Cafe on The Strip last night in a warm-up performance before the rockers begin a European tour, and Killers frontman Brandon Flowers surprised the audience by joining the guys onstage mid-set.

Thanks to Erik Kabik, who was onsite for his Vegas DeLuxe photo gallery of Big Talk backstage before the show, in performance mode and with surprise guest Flowers, who was casual in a denim jacket and facial hair. The singer performed The Killers’ “When You Were Young” with Big Talk.

Big Talk’s set list last night: “Katz,” “White Dove,” “Getaways,” “Hunting Season,” “Barry Town,” “Under Water,” “Girl at Sunrise,” “Replica,” “Next One Living,” “No Whiskey,” “In Pictures,” “Fine Time” and “Big Eye.”

Big Talk last performed at the Hard Rock Cafe on The Strip on July 20.
