Las Vegas native and The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers took to the band's social media to share a touching message mourning the 59 victims of the recent shooting that took place at the Route 91 Harvest Country Music festival.

"It's hard to believe it's real. My prayers go out to those whose lives were taken and to everyone else affected by this nightmare," wrote Flowers. "They are a rite of passage, a holy communion, or just the kind of escape from the stress and the grind of daily life that so many people need. My heart swells when I hear the stories of people putting their lives on the line to help each other—defying the stereotypes of what people say Las Vegas is all about."
