Rock band The Killers start an investigation into allegations of sexual abuse during their tour

The Killers are investigating allegations of sexual abuse by a former sound engineer who alleged that members of the band’s crew were abusing a drugged woman in a dressing room.

None of the band members, including Mormon singer Brandon Flowers, were involved in the alleged sexual assault in the dressing room.

The female sound engineer, who uses Chez Cherrie on Twitter, shared a 2018 blog post for her report on how ‘misogyny slowly drifted in’ while working for the band on their US tour in 2009.

And she shared how in one instance a “ clearly obscured or nearly ” woman was abused by some of the crew on the tour before being left naked and unconscious in a dressing room.

The revelations contrast sharply with the spotless image of the band. The pious frontman Flowers has spoken publicly about his clean way of life and how to avoid drugs, alcohol and smoking.

In her tweet, Cherrie wrote, “Trigger warning. This is my story. I was a tech for the largest sound company in the world and (still) worked for one of the largest bands in the world.

“I have never had any kind of justice. I wonder about her all the time. Share my story about my time with THE KILLERS. ‘

She then tweeted a link to her blog post, originally written in 2018, detailing the alleged meeting at the Eagles Ballroom at the Rave in Milwaukee.

It said, “We were about halfway through our load-in when [a voice] came over [the] radio and said, “Hey guys, there’s a girl in Dressing Room A. Put your name on the list outside with your radio channel and we’ll call you when it’s your turn.”

“I continued to unload and occasionally heard a name come over the radio to let them know it was their turn on the train in locker room A.”

Cherrie added that she hadn’t thought much about the incident at first, as she believed the woman to be a “consenting adult,” who had no qualms about having so many men – some of whom were “happily married to children.”

The sound engineer would calm down tonight, hoping that “the disgusting behavior would come from the boys’ systems.”

Unfortunately, that was not the case. Everyone exchanged stories about this woman and their experiences with her. They talked about her intoxication level, but had no qualms about being clearly obscured or close to it, ”she said.

The killers promise to investigate claims thoroughly

The Killers shared the following statement:

First of all, allegations of inappropriate behavior by anyone on The Killers tour team are taken extremely seriously by the band and their management.

The story of this person is horrific and although The Killers will not have the same touring crew in 2020 as they did in 2009, they will do a thorough investigation of past and current tour staff.

Their legal team will contact this individual for more information and clarification of the alleged incidents, as detailed, as well as the audio supplier who provided the crew for the tour.

The band is surprised and shocked by these claims. The behavior attributed to them and their crew is unrecognizable and runs counter to the principles with which they run their workplace. ‘

“They joked about one of the rented guns because he acquitted the woman when he finished third. They called him gay because he messed up other boys in her post. I just tried to ignore what was going on. ‘

She said that while they were leaving, a security guard ran to the bus.

“The security officer said, and I will never forget this moment because a part of me died that night,” That girl in locker room A is passed out and naked. Will someone take care of her? ” ‘

Cherrie claimed that male crew members just laughed and refused to help before closing the door.

She added, “The security guard looked at his shoes and the bus drove away, and part of my heart went black and fell to the floor.

“I cried in my bunk that night. I should have left the tour. I should have spoken for that woman. I should have defended her … and made sure she was fine. ‘

At the time of the alleged incident, the Las Vegas group was accompanied by singer Brandon Flowers alongside guitarist Dave Keuning, bassist Mark Stoermer and drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr.

A legal representative for the band told MailOnline, “First of all, allegations of inappropriate behavior by someone on The Killers tour team are taken very seriously by the band and their management.

The story of this person is horrific, and while The Killers won’t have the same touring crew in 2020 as they did earlier in their careers, they’ll do a thorough investigation of past and current tour staff.

Their legal team will contact this individual for more information and clarification of the alleged incidents, as detailed, as well as the audio supplier who provided the crew for the tour.

Flowers has previously spoken about how he was seduced by alcohol in the early days of the band, but gave up the drink after his marriage in 2005 – years before the alleged tour incident in 2009.

In 2007 he spoke to the Dail Mail: “I grew up reading all of these stories about David Bowie loaded in the 1970s. It all sounded so great. Suddenly I was confronted with those things every day. The women, the booze, the drugs … I’m not going to pretend it was easy to deal with. It was a dilemma for me.

“It was more about drinking for me. I mean, being in a band is a lot like a permanent adolescent. So yes, I would drink alcohol. People asked me how it all suited my Mormon faith.

“Well, I happen to belong to a very tolerant meeting. At least I have now left that behind me. I am a clean machine. ‘

In addition to the dressing room incident, Cherrie described a long history of misogyny she experienced while working with the band.

Cherrie said she was the only woman working for the band, noting that men who worked in the crew made crude jokes and made inappropriate comments to her.

Cherrie detailed that she was being scolded for making a series of work-related comments that her male counterparts had also made and were not scolded.

The reprimand became so severe and frequent that a certain lash caused Cherrie to flee to the tour bus so she could cry out her eyes.

She added, “I remember one of the backline technicians comforting me and telling me not to worry that the FOH guy was always a cock … I couldn’t help but I thought, why wasn’t he a dick to everyone? Why was he only ad ** k and verbally abusive to me daily? ‘

Cherrie described the bus as ‘unsafe’ about a week after the tour and recalled how band members would abuse drunk groupies they brought on the bus.

“It was kind of a sport for them,” she said in the post. “They heard the audio crew to a special they had. If we were looking for chicks for them, making sure we checked IDs and that the girls would come backstage with the unspoken agreement that they would blow up a band member, we could get a $ 50 bonus.

“In fact, if the girl took a shower naked before a particular member, we’d get $ 50 extra.”

Cherrie declined to participate in the trolling, saying such incidents prior to the locker room fiasco contributed to the culture that prevailed while touring with the band.
