Budding talent... Killers songster temporarily hits the solo trail

Brandon Flowers: Not going back to his roots

There was a rumour floating around the packed Forum last night that David Cameron was in the audience. I did not spot him on my way in, but he did choose The Killers' “All These Things That I've Done” as a desert island disc in 2006 and I imagine that, being a man of firm convictions, Brandon Flowers still floats his prime-ministerial boat. Clean living, passionate, nothing too controversial – just like the PM before he pulled the knife out and started plotting to slash away at the country's finances.

The first time I saw Flowers on Top of the Pops sporting a scruffy fringe and singing "Mr Brightside", I would have put all my chips on him being from moist Macclesfield, not sunny Nevada

David and Samantha Cameron were there, and sat behind me upstairs. They were on the same table as Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton.

And David Walliams

I saw the PM too. The doors opened about 30-40 minutes later than expected. I bet he had something to do with that. The show was well worth it, even though it was too short. The support band were good too. All in all, a excellent night.
