An avid fan of American rock band The Killers was thrilled to be greeted on stage with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Scottish teacher Kyle Grieve was asked by coach Brandon Flowers to play one of the band’s biggest hits, which he duly obeyed – of course.
The drumming coach, 28, impressively played For Reasons Unknown in front of a crowd of 20,000 at Falkirk Stadium on Tuesday.
The confident musician had caught the band’s attention the night before with the first of two rocker gigs.
He held up a sign asking if he could hit the drums but was not desired. Next, he caught his arm and this time he was invited up by Brandon.
Speaking to Falkirk Live, he admitted that he was thoroughly delighted after the performance.
“I still can’t believe this happened and I can’t stop watching all the videos,” he choked.
“This is a life-long dream and there are no words to describe how much it means to me or how I really feel.”
He went on to reveal how persistence is the key to realizing his dreams. He admits Brandon told him he signed up too late for his first performance, and the singer told the teacher, “If you want to hit the drums, you need to have a business sense.”
That led to him receiving a new sign on Tuesday that read: “I want to talk about business tonight.”
After being led up to the stage and performing, Kyle admitted it was “the best feeling ever”.
He continued: “I was so nervous about catching Brandon’s eye and being invited up but once I actually got on stage I felt at ease and it was the best feeling ever. now.”
“The reaction of the crowd was amazing, they were all cheering, the noise was incredible.”
He later told the BBC: “That’s all I wanted to do. The killer is my biggest influence, it’s thanks to them that I’ve been shunned.”
He confessed that he had come to see the band 14 times in the past 10 years and praised the crowd for their amazing response to his impromptu performance.
“The crowd was great, it was all surreal,” he added. “I’m looking forward to the band’s tour and I feel like all the hard work is paying off.”
