At The Killers’ recent concert in New Zealand, singer Brandon Flowers noticed a girl in the audience holding a Subway wrapper that said “Drum?” and called her up onstage, according to New Zealand website, Newshub.

Introduced as “Amy from Auckland,” — her last name is Boden — Flowers asked her to play drums for Ronnie Vannucci on their hit song, “For Reasons Unknown,” in front of 12,000 people.

When security brought her up, Vannucci joked that Boden shouldn’t worry if she got emotional while playing. “It’s okay, I cry and play drums all the time,” he said. “I’m doing it right now.”

With loads of encouragement from The Killers and the crowd, Boden, well, killed it, and afterward shared a hug with Flowers and Vannucci, and even got to keep the sticks she played with on the song.
