Mothers of Killers front man dies
The mother of Killers frontman Brandon Flowers passed away late last week after a two-year battle with brain cancer. Jean Flowers was 64.
Recently The Killers had canceled a handful of shows in Australia and Asia, which fueled rumors that the band may be breaking up. The band responded on their website with the following statement: “The Killers had hoped that the Australian leg of their current tour would be completed as planned, but due to the severity of the illness of a close family member, they regretfully announce the cancellation of their Sydney Enmore show as well as their shows at Good Vibrations Festival Sydney and Good Vibrations Festival Perth this weekend.” Their dates for Australia’s Good Vibrations Festival this weekend are still posted to their website, and there is no word of any other cancellations.
