In what must surely be a rock ’n’ roll first, the Killers had to restart a performance Saturday night because someone — presumably a kid — began scribbling over their broadcast.
The band performed on the famed weekly Zoom party hosted by WME agent Richard Weitz, contributing a cover of Tom Petty’s “The Waiting.” But someone — assumed to be a small child — appeared to be using the drawing function on the iPad or other device they were using to beam in their performance, leaving the band increasingly covered in lines and silly squiggles.
Weitz called a halt to the show before they disappeared entirely, and restarted the song.
The call — which Page Six dialed in to — lived up to its reputation as the glitziest Zoom party in the world, with performances and conversations with Beck, Elvis Costello, Seal, Carlos Santana, Bryan Adams, Gloria Gaynor, Kenny Loggins and Barry Manilow.
Guests included Kevin Bacon, Clive Davis and Monica Lewinsky.
Donations from Saturday night — including $200,000 from Goldman Sachs’ global markets division — brought the total raised by Weitz’s regular Zoom celebrity shindigs to more than $3 million.
