The rockers have launched an investigation into the allegations of sexual assault during their US tour.
The rock band announced to be “astonished and shocked” about the claims of sexual abuse that allegedly took place during their tour.
The Killers announced they are launching an investigation
The shock news came from a sound engineer who worked backstage during The Killers’ US tour in 2009. She claimed a woman was repeatedly assaulted by several members of the tour crew. The woman, named on Twitter as Chez Cherrie, said the woman was left ‘passed out’ and naked after members of the crew had abused her in turns in a dressing room. Chez Cherrie wrote: ‘Trigger warning. This is my story. I was a tech for the largest sound company in the world working for one of the biggest bands in the world (still).
‘I’ve never had any sort of justice. I wonder about her all the time. Please share my story about my time with THE KILLERS.’

She tweeted the link to her blog where she had described the shocking abuse:
‘We were about halfway through our load-in when [a voice] came over [the] radio and said, “Hey guys, there is a girl set up in Dressing Room A. Put your name on the list outside the door with your radio channel and we’ll call you when it’s your turn”.
‘The security guy said, and I will never forget this moment because a piece of me died that night, “That girl in Dressing Room A is passed out and naked. Is anyone going to take care of her?” ”I cried that night in my bunk. I should’ve left the tour. I should’ve spoken up for that woman. I should’ve defended her… and made sure she was okay.’
The famous rock band announced to be “astonished and shocked” and they will be launching an investigation into their past tour staff. A spokeswoman for the band announced the band was taking the claims extremely seriously and said: “The behaviour attributed to them and their crew is unrecognisable and in direct opposition to the principles with which they run their workplace”.
