Brandon Flowers has called in sick. His anticipated solo return tonight at the Bunkhouse has been postponed.
The following explanation has been added to the event page on the Bunkhouse website: "Brandon Flowers has been forced to cancel their [sic] show this evening at Las Vegas’s Bunkhouse Saloon due to illness. The show will be rescheduled shortly; all tickets from the cancelled show will be honored for the forthcoming amended date. Brandon would like to apologize to his fans for the cancellation."
Fans were already camped out in front of the Downtown venue early this morning, some having reportedly flown in from Europe to attend The Killers singer's first airing of songs from his second solo album, The Desired Effect (due out in May). This might explain the social media outrage right when tickets went on sale last Friday morning, as the show sold out instantaneously. The Bunkhouse holds 250 people, and fans who pre-ordered the new album were promised "exclusive limited access to tickets" for the show.
