Brandon Flowers announces surprise Las Vegas show

Killers man to play The Bunkhouse Saloon on March 9

Brandon Flowers has announced a last-minute show in Las Vegas.

The concert will take place in the city’s Bunkhouse Saloon venue on Monday (March 9). Tickets are available to fans who pre-order Flowers’ upcoming album ‘The Desired Effect’.

Brandon Flowers announced the title of his forthcoming solo album last month, as well as a release date of May 18. The Killers frontman broke the news via a note posted onto his Twitter page that read: “We will finally achieve The Desired Effect. Ariel [Rechtshaid, producer] and I have been collaborating in the studio, working together [sic] in the spirit of conversation, contention, and at long last, sweet contrition. No-one has yet seen or heard the change. But soon we all will.”

Flowers has been working with Rechtshaid on the follow-up to 2010’s ‘Flamingo’ while The Killers are on hiatus. Speaking to NME recently, the 33-year-old said that his second solo album is “definitely going to be different” to his previous material. “Even though I’m still young, you can start to get set in your ways. Change is good and there’s always growth, I’m always looking for that,” he said.

The Killers played a few blocks away from The Bunkhouse when they headlined the first Life Is Beautiful festival in 2013. The band last released an album in 2012 in the form of ‘Battle Born’.
