Brandon Flowers: ‘We’ll never play Glastonbury again’

Killers frontman admits headline slot was a once only event

The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers has admitted that the band will probably never play Glastonbury again following their headlining performance at the weekend.

The singer, who snubbed the chance to headline the festival two years ago, told NME.COM that the performance was likely to be their last at Worthy Farm.

He said: “This will probably be the last time we play here. You only get one real shot at it and this is ours. If we ever come back, we’ll be The Who‘s age.”


Leading up to their headline slot on the Pyramid Stage, Brandon admitted feeling nervous before one of the biggest performances of their lives.

“I was trying to channel all my nerves into some positive energy, but 10 minutes before I was total wreck,” he explained. “The idea of headlining this festival was just so far off for us when we first played here.”

The Vegas four-piece had previously appeared second on the bill on the Pyramid Stage in 2005 after appearing in the New Tent the previous year.
