Watch The Killers cover ‘This Charming Man’ after Morrissey pulls out of California gig

Morrissey was set to headline the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas gig last night (10th December).

As is becoming more and more predictable, Morrissey last night pulled out of his headline set at the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas gig in California last night, leaving The Killers to headline.

In his honour, Brandon ‘The Man’ Flowers and co. decided to take on a version of Smiths classic ‘This Charming Man’ during the set.

As Consequence of Sound point out, Morrissey has now cancelled a grand total of 127 concerts since 2012.

Morrissey cancelled the show due to “illness in the touring party”.

The Killers just finished up a massive UK arena tour on the back of new album ‘Wonderful Wonderful’.

Watch them cover ‘This Charming Man’ and re-visit the November 2017 DIY cover feature with the band here.
