Brandon Flowers - Is there a Brightside? The Killers Walk Off Stage After 5 Songs

In a particularly disappointing anti-climax to a show that thousands of people had been looking forward to, The Killers were forced to leave the stage, apparently due to front man Brandon Flowers' illhealth, reports the BBC.

At last night's show at the MEN Arena in Manchester, UK, Brandon Flowers stopped the gig saying "I'm sorry, we've never done this before, but we've got to stop," reports Gigwise. "I don't know what to tell you guys. It's frustrating for me. I'm sorry." One disgruntled fan told the BBC quite the opposite, "We queued for hours. I'm an avid fan. I've been to 18 or so concerts. But he's done this before" she said. "It happened a few years ago in Brixton and he had to cancel Dublin. You could tell he was going. You could tell he was skipping bars out of songs and if you're a fan you just know it." In a statement from the Arena, they said that Flowers complained of a sore throat and simply could not go on. 

The band apologised to their fans via Twitter and Facebook, with a message that read "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. K."  Those with tickets have been advised to keep hold of them and get in touch from the original vendor for details of future and rescheduled shows.
