The Killers have rescheduled dates for their two recently axed Manchester shows.

The band were forced to cut their show short at the city's arena on Tuesday (13 November) after singer Brandon Flowers suffered throat problems.

The shows will now take place on 17 and 18 February 2013.

"I'm sorry I've never had to do this before but we've got to stop," the front man told the crowd earlier this week.

"I can't sing. I don't know what else to tell you. I'm sorry. I promise that we will come back."

The gig had to end after four songs.

The band went on to cancel their second show the following night (14 November).

Tickets are still valid for the rescheduled dates with the exception of standing tickets from the first show, which will be re-issued by ticketing agents.

The band's scheduled London shows at the O2 Arena this Friday (16 November) and Saturday (17 November) will go ahead as planned.

The Killers have also announced a one-off show at Wembley Stadium next summer.
