    Fans who go to see The Killers on their new tour supporting Wonderful Wonderful will be watching a band at half strength. Bassist Mark Stoermer (above, second from right) announced last summer that he’d be taking a break from touring, and now a new interview in Q Magazine reveals that guitarist Dave Keuning (far right) has followed suit (via Stereogum).

    Both members are still actively part of the Las Vegas rock group, but neither will participate in their upcoming concerts. Instead, frontman Brandon Flowers and drummer Ronnie Vannucci, Jr. will share the stage with a pair of hired-guns in bassist Jake Blanton and guitarist Ted Sablay, according to The Killers News.
