The Killers Ditch Dublin Date

DUBLIN (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — American Synth-pop band, The Killers, were forced to cancel a scheduled November 30 Dublin appearance when frontman Brandon Flowers called in sick.

Flowers had apparently come down with bronchitis.

In a statement posted on, the band said:

"We've had to make the terrible decision to cancel tonight's show in Dublin since we've fallen foul to the dreaded 'flu bug. Brandon has bronchitis and is unable to sing. We're devastated to have to disappoint so many people, but it's simply impossible for us to go ahead with the gig.

We've had some of our favorite shows in Ireland, 2004's Oxegen Festival was the best ever, and we were really excited to be finishing our European tour with tonight's show at The Point. It was set to be the biggest show on the tour and we know the Dublin audience would have made it spectacular…

We're so sorry, Dublin. We'll find a way to make it up to you, we promise!"

As of yet, no new date has been scheduled. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
