The Weekly has learned that a 2010 Brandon Flowers solo date has been floated to at least one Midwestern theater, supporting recent reports The Killers frontman might be heading out on his own. If booked, the show would likely take place at a venue roughly the size of Las Vegas' House of Blues, sometime in the spring.

The band's Manhattan publicity firm responded to our inquiry by commenting, "[Flowers] does not have plans to go solo. The Killers are very much still promoting Day & Age, with tour dates in Asia, Australia, Japan, etc. into 2010." The official statement did not address the possibility that Flowers might release solo material or plot his own tour while remaining a member of The Killers, however.

Presently, the Vegas quartet's last confirmed tour date is February 21 in Melbourne, Australia.
