The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers has revealed part of the band's "musical DNA" is from the UK.

The Las Vegas band are embarking on a UK arena tour this week, and lead singer Brandon said he was looking forward to rocking out on British soil.

"It's always great to play in Scotland, and Manchester is our musical home so we're looking forward to that. In Scotland they're just a little bit more rambunctious than the rest," he said.

"We're excited to play our new songs. We've only played a few of them live."

Asked why The Killers' music struck a chord with UK fans, the Somebody Told Me singer said: "Part of our DNA is from over here, the musical DNA. We have absorbed it our whole lives and so it comes out in some weird way, funnelled through Las Vegas.

"You recognise some heart in it and hopefully that's why."

Gemini:

Someone will break a promise to you, which is disappointing. Don't let this setback stop you from crossing the finish line. You may have to submit an entry late or attend the last few minutes of a meeting, but take heart. Rallying in the midst of difficult circumstances will count in your favour. Someone else may get a job or scholarship, but you'll be in the running for the next opportunity. In the meantime, have an alternative plan ready when relying on others for help.More
