Singer Brandon Flowers is taking inspiration from Bono…

The Killers have been taking inspiration from U2 following their recent support slot with the band.

Singer Brandon Flowers has revealed that following their string of European dates together, Bono has become a massive influence on him.

“He’s great, we’ve learnt so much,” Flowers told NME.COM. “I saw them on the ‘Elevation’ tour when I’d never even played a gig, so it’s such a strange thing that’s happened to us.”

He added: “To go from the heart of the Las Vegas date to opening for them, I have a whole new perspective watching them!”

Flowers added that watching the band from the wings had given him a few ideas for [a][/a]’ shows.

”They’re the best band in the world, no doubt about it, and they’re the best live band at the moment and it’s an amazing thing,” he said. “We’ve learnt so much from watching all of them. We’re just going to be good students.”
