Killers' frontman cancels NC shows

The Brandon Flowers' concerts set for Charlotte and Raleigh Thursday and Friday, respectively, have been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances according to an annoucement from LiveNation late Wednesday afternoon.

The Killers' frontman was scheduled to play the Fillmore Thursday to promote his second solo album "The Desired Effect."

In a press release from LiveNation, Flowers offered his apologies to the fans. The news likely comes as a disappointment to Killers' fans because the Las Vegas rock act has never played Charlotte. I saw them in Asheville a few years ago, but that pre-album release club gig at the Orange Peel sold out quickly leaving many fans without their Killers' fix.

Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.

Flowers played the National in Richmond Tuesday (the set included a handful of Killers' songs and acoustic renditions). He's scheduled to play the Norva in Norfolk Saturday.
