The Killers Cancel Gig Over Flowers' Throat Injury

Rockers THE KILLERS walked offstage during their concert in Colorado last night (17May07), because frontman BRANDON FLOWERS was suffering from a throat injury. The band took to the stage at the Red Rocks Amphitheater at 10pm but Flowers led his bandmates off midway through the second song. A doctor then went onstage and told the audience it would be damaging to Flowers' voice to carry on singing. Drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr promised disappointed fans the band would return to perform there.

Maybe, since everybody had already paid for the tickets, he figured that he'd at least give it a shot for his fans? At least he made an effort.

This is disgusting. Why go on at all? He obviously knew about the "injury" since the doctor was there waiting to make the big announcement. Why not just cancel the gig before everybody hauled out to the venue? Of course that would have been less dramatic and would not have gotten as much media attentin.
