The Killers yesterday (November 15) shot the video for the next single to be taken from their 'Battle Born' album in Blackpool.

Directed by Tim Burton - pictured - the video stars Hollywood actress Winona Ryder and was shot inside the city's ornate Tower Ballroom, reports the Blackpool Gazette.

The night before the video shoot, the band were spotted by fans as they watched the new James Bond film Skyfall at the Blackpool branch of the Odeon. Cinema manager Samantha Sinclair, was quoted as saying: "It was really exciting. They were happy to have photos taken with locals... They were really nice, not very chatty but I know they had to cancel their gig on Tuesday because Brandon lost his voice."

The Killers have now rescheduled the dates for their two recently axed Manchester shows.

The band were forced to cut their show short at the city's Arena after vocal problems forced frontman Brandon Flowers to end the gig after four songs. The setback also resulted in the band cancelling their second show the following night.

The shows will now take place on February 17 and 18, 2013. Tickets for the original shows remain valid for the rescheduled dates with the exception of standing tickets from the first show, which will be reissued to customers by their original ticketing agents. The band's scheduled London shows at the O2 Arena tonight (November 16) and Saturday (17) will go ahead as planned.

Tickets for The Killers' forthcoming Wembley Stadium show next summer are on sale now. To check the availability of Killers tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
