The Killers: The Killers Cancel Tour But Deny Breaking Up

The Killers Cancel Tour But Deny Breaking Up was a top story in Feb. Here is the recap: The Killers canceled their Asian tour last month and now the Australian leg has been axed due to a family illness. A statement the band issued on their website announcing the latest cancelation and also denying reports of their demise as a band. Here is what they had to say:
The Killers had hoped that the Australian leg of their recent tour would be completed as planned, but due to the severity of the illness of a close family member, they regretfully announce the cancellation of their Sydney Enmore show as well as their shows at Good Vibrations Festival Sydney and Good Vibrations Festival Perth this weekend. The band excuse to their Australian fans and asks for their understanding. The Killers still intend to perform at the Good Vibrations Festival's Gold Coast and Melbourne shows next weekend.
The Killers would also like to take this chance to assure their fans that any concerns about the future of the band are unfounded. They are all looking forward to some time off at the end of this tour as they have been on the road for a long time, but there are no plans for an indefinite hiatus.
