Brandon Flowers admits UK tour setlist is ‘proving difficult’

The Killers frontman says he wants to perform new album 'Battle Born' in full

Brandon Flowers has admitted that deciding on a running order for The Killers‘ current live show is proving more difficult than anticipated.

The frontman revealed to Q that he and his bandmates are currently trying to determine which songs they will play live when they play a series of live dates in the UK later this month. The Mormon singer revealed that he is keen to play lots of material from latest album ‘Battle Born’, though appreciates he has to “keep everyone happy” with older songs.

Speaking from the Q Awards, Flowers said: “It’s proving to be difficult, because I want to sing all the new songs,” said Flowers of his band’s live preparations, “but we’ve got to find a place for them and how they fit in with old songs, but it’s all working out real well right now”.


The band’s run of 13 dates begins at Glasgow’s SECC on October 26 and runs until November 17 when the band headline the second of two shows at London’s O2 Arena.

The tour also includes stops in Aberdeen, Nottingham, Newcastle, Cardiff, Sheffield and Liverpool.

Glasgow SECC (October 26)
Aberdeen Exhibition Centre (27)

Nottingham Capital FM Arena (3)
