Bonnaroo 2018 Closes Out with Headliners The Killers, Grand Ole Opry and More

Rob Loud

After a packed weekend of music in Manchester, TN, Bonnaroo closed out Sunday night with a massive headlining set from The Killers, who closed out the festival’s main What stage with some crowd-pleasing favorites like “Mr. Brightside,” “Smile Like You Mean It” and “All These Things That I’ve Done,” plus a cover of Tom Petty’s “American Girl” and and encore that closed out with their tune “When You Were Young.”

Also of note on Sunday was the appearance of Nashville institution Grand Ole Opry, which offered a Sunday set that featured Del McCoury and his band, Old Crow Medicine Show and more. It was the first time the Opry had left its hometown of Music City in its 92 years. OCMS also made news, as the band was presented with the key to the city of Manchester, TN, joining past Bonnaroo honorees like Widespread Panic, Preservation Hall Jazz Band and the first recipient in 2008, B.B. King.

Before Sunday’s festivities, though, Kaskade helped fans stretch out their time on The Farm with a sunrise set that stretched into the morning hours. On Sunday, Nashville-based rockers Moon Taxi paid tribute to this year’s headliners, playing a medley of tunes from Muse, Eminem and The Killers.
