Hear that? That’s the sound of a million female hearts breaking. Brandon Flowers, the gorgeous lead singer of popular rock group the Killers, has married his long-time girlfriend Tana Munblowsky, an Urban Outfitters retail manager in the band’s hometown of Las Vegas.
Flowers, with his suave style and trademark black eyeliner, has been setting hearts aflutter since the Killers burst onto the scene just two years ago. But fans will now have to settle for Mr. Brightside as a married man.
A spokesperson for the band?s record label, Island Records, announced yesterday that Flowers tied the knot last Tuesday in “a small, intimate wedding” in Hawaii. His bandmates were all present and “helped the couple celebrate” afterward. The surprise wedding was a low-key event; some sources report that even Elton John was denied an invite in order to keep the ceremony as top-secret as possible.
The couple?s honeymoon will be a short one. The band is due to go back out on the road on August 9 with a show in St. Paul, Minn. They?ve also just been added as performers at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards, to be held in Miami, Fla. on August 28.
