Rockers The Killers have postponed their weekend (08-09Mar13) shows in Europe due to illness.

The band was due to play in Brussels, Belgium on Friday night (08Mar13), but they axed the gig just hours before they were due to take to the stage.

They have also called off a planned concert in Esch-sur-Alzette in Luxembourg on Saturday (09Mar13).

A post on the band's page reads, "Dear fans, due to illness, upcoming shows in Brussels and Esch-sur-Alzette have been postponed."

The shows have been rescheduled for June (13).

The Killers previously called off a number of gigs on their North American tour late last year (12) when frontman Brandon Flowers fell sick with laryngitis.
