Killers pull show as Flowers loses voice

Artist News Gigs & Festivals

The Killers

The Killers were forced to stop a show in Manchester yesterday just four or five songs in because frontman Brandon Flowers lost his voice. And we won’t have any of you suggesting that might have been an improvement thank you very much, the poor guy is ill.

Tonight’s Manchester gig is also now cancelled, though it’s not yet certain what will happen to the band’s planned London shows later in the week. The group wrote on Facebook: “Manchester, we started something we couldn’t finish and we’re so, so sorry. Working on rescheduling tonight and tomorrow’s shows. Will let you know new dates ASAP”.

Meanwhile, the band also announced yesterday that they will play a headline show at Wembley Stadium on 22 Jun 2013. Let’s hope Flowers manages to make it all the way through that one.
