“I’m not sure if people are aware of it, but these are probably our last shows for a while,” guitarist Dave Keuning told the Associated Press. “Unless some surprise thing comes up… we’re having a break.”
“We haven’t had a break in quite a while,” he continued. “It’s just been touring and making records on and on and on.”
“There hasn’t been much time where we haven’t been either touring or taking time to make another record.”
The break should give all band members some time to do other things. For singer/keyboardist Brandon Flowers, that probably means more time with his two sons. Keuning also has a young son.
“…We just want a little time off, just to be myself and do what I want to do for a little bit,” Keuning said.
