Brandon Flowers MCThe Killers frontman, Brandon Flowers recently completed a UK tour in support of his long awaited second solo album ‘The Desired Effect’.

Brandon Flowers rose to fame as frontman of Las Vegas rock band The Killers. The band helped to bring eighties synth music to a generation too young to remember it the first time around. Drawing influences from bands including Psychedelic Furs, New Order and Echo and the Bunnymen, The Killers made their multi-platinum début with the 2004 album Hot Fuss.

After six successful years performing with The Killers, Flowers launched a solo career in 2010. His album, Flamingo, achieved No. 1 in the UK and topped the charts in several other countries.

The Killers frontman played – London Brixton O2 Academy, Manchester Academy, Edinburgh Usher Hall, Leeds O2 Academy and Birmingham O2 Academy.  An additional date was added at the O2 Academy Brixton after the first one sold out in just one minute.

Capital Sound supplied a control package for the month long European Promo tour. Consoles were SSL500 @ FOH with DiGico SD7 at monitors.  The control package was added too, with a Martin MLA-C system for the 2 London Brixton shows.  The monitor system used D&B M2 wedges with Shure PSM1000 IEM systems. Brandon’s Engineers are Kenny Kaiser at FOH with Marty Beath mixing monitors.
