London - The Killers' Brandon Flowers was forced to cut a show short after losing his voice during a performance on Tuesday.

The band had to end their set at the Manchester Evening News arena in the north of England after just four songs, and have cancelled Wednesday's scheduled show, due to Brandon's voice problems.

Concertgoer Katherine Vine told the Manchester Evening News newspaper: "They played Mr Brightside and it sounded fine. I thought it was going to be great.

"But after the third song, Smile Like You Mean It, Brandon said his voice had gone and he had a Chinese remedy drink so he would take that.

"They started the fourth song but he didn't sing a lot of it and was motioning to the rest of the band that he could not carry on.They left the stage and then a man came out and said the gig was cancelled."

'We started something we couldn't finish'


The band issued a statement apologising to fans and promising to reschedule the shows.

The band took to to Twitter and posted the following set of tweets:
