Brandon Flowers confirms UK solo tour

Brandon Flowers has confirmed he will do a UK tour as a solo act later this year.
Great deals on musical instruments

Brandon Flowers is to embark on a solo tour of the UK.

The singer - best known as the frontman of US rockers The Killers - has confirmed he will head to the UK to play songs from his debut solo album 'Flamingo'.

Brandon said: "We'll definitely be over this year. I think it's going to be very meat-and-potatoes at first. We're going to learn the songs and then learn how to present them."

Despite using the shows to showcase his solo material, the 'Human' hitmaker admits fans can also expect to hear his better-known hits.

He added: "A Killers song will creep in every now and then. It's inevitable."

Discussing the tour, Brandon claims his backing-band will be made of people who the 'Somebody Told Me' hitmakers Dave Keuning, Mark Stoermer and Ronnie Vannucci have come to know.

He told Xfm radio: "It's a collection of guys that The Killers know. They're our friends that we've acquired over the years."

Last month Brandon confirmed some song titles for his debut album, including 'Hard Enough' and 'Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas'.

He has worked with Madonna and Kylie Minogue collaborator Stuart Price on 'Flamingo' as well as Daniel Lanoid and Brendan O'Brien.
