Killer for a cream tea; THE DIARY.

Byline: Ashleigh Rainbird

Blue M&Ms, white puppies, fruit and flowers. Rock bands are notorious for having ludicrous riders.

But The Killers are content with just a humble cream tea.

Chatting in their tour bus ahead of their impressive headline slot, which drew one of the biggest crowds of the weekend, singer Brandon

Flowers revealed he has to have an afternoon treat before he can go on stage.

"I can't go out there without my clotted cream and scones,"he says. But, controversially, Brandon insists on spreading cream before dolloping jam on his preshow snack.

"People put jam first?" he asks, incredulously. "That's like putting conditioner on your hair first. That's unbelievable."

The group's hit Mr Brightside was one of the standout performances of the weekend, and the band are still surprised by its impact.

"That song has taken on a life of its own it's kinda out of our hands. It's like Happy Birthday," he says.
