The Killers have been forced to cancel three dates on their current North American tour as Brandon Flowers' laryngitis has returned.

The band, who were forced to cancel their gig in Manchester earlier this year when Flowers was suffering issues with his throat, have postponed three shows on their US tour including a show at New York's Madison Square Garden and last night's show in New Jersey. The three shows affected are Camden, NJ’s Susquehanna Bank Center (Dec 13), New York City’s Madison Square Garden (Dec 14), and Toronto’s Air Canada Centre (Dec 15).

The Killers tour is scheduled to start again on December 17 at Boston's Agganis Arena.

Speaking after the cancellation of their Manchester show earlier this year, Brandon Flowers quoted The Smiths while discussing his illness, saying: "Manchester, we started something we couldn't finish and we're so, so sorry. Working on rescheduling tonight and tomorrow's shows. Will let you know new dates ASAP. ?"

Meanwhile, The Killers recently released their annual Christmas single 'I Feel It In My Bones' and played at this year's KROQ Christmas show in Los Angeles on a bill which also included Garbage, Jack White, Two Door Cinema Club and special guests No Doubt.
