Saturday, Nov 17, 2012

AMERICAN rock band The Killers are in Blackpool yesterday to shoot a video for their new single.

The Las Vegas chart toppers are in the resort with legendary Batman and Planet of the Apes director Tim Burton and Hollywood star Winona Ryder.

The band have been filming inside Blackpool’s legendary Tower Ballroom.Excited fans took to social networks late last night after the band – fronted by Brandon Flowers – were spotted at Blackpool’s Odeon cinema where they watched the new James Bond film Skyfall.

Flowers took time out to pose for pictures with staff and customers. Samantha Sinclair, manager at the cinema, said: “It was really exciting.

“They were happy to have photos taken with locals. It was their bassist, Mark who took our photo for us.

“They were really nice, not very chatty but I know they had to cancel their gig on Tuesday because Brandon lost his voice.”
