Brandon Flowers was at New York’s JFK International Airport, getting ready to fly home to Utah, when he got a text message from a number he didn’t know.
The message praised Flowers’ band, The Killers, and complimented the singer’s style. And then there was a request: “We gotta do ‘Dustland’ one day.”
The note, which Flowers recently shared on his Twitter account, then ended with a simple “Bruce.”
In a recent Twitter post, Flowers recalled receiving that message over a year ago. He wrote how he didn’t want to jump to any conclusions, so he Googled the area code.
