Just announced


Brighton Centre, Brighton, Saturday, October 5

NOUGHTIES rockers Keane have announced a new UK tour for the autumn.

The Sussex four-piece will play a home county show as part of the tour, their first in six years.

They will perform at the Brighton Centre on Saturday, October 5.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, June 14.

Hailing from Battle, near Hastings, the band formed in the mid-Nineties, but it wouldn’t be until 2004 that they would release their debut album, Hopes and Fears.

With songs like Somewhere Only We Know and Everybody’s Changing, Keane soon shot up the singles charts and their debut record charted at number one.

That success followed them into their next three studio albums.

Under the Iron Sea in 2006, 2008’s Perfect Symmetry, and 2012’s Strangeland all debuted at number one in the charts as well.

Following the release of their Best of Keane album in 2013 the band members announced that they would be taking a break from the group.

Singer Tom Chaplin embarked on a solo career, releasing two relatively successful albums.

The Wave, released in 2016, was Tom’s first album away from the Keane moniker and proved a big hit - debuting at number three.

For his second solo release he decided to put out a Christmas album, 2017’s Twelve Tales of Christmas, which proved less successful, coming in at 21 in the charts.

In the same year, in an interview with The Sun, Tom said that he thought he might be too old to reform Keane.

However come 2019 the group announced their relaunch and will hit the road for their first tour in six years.

They have also announced a new album, Cause and Effect, which is due to be released in September.

The group, or its members at least, may look a little different than they did when they hit fame in the early Noughties, but their songs are still are catchy and dance worthy as they were a decade ago.

The autumn tour will see Keane play 11 dates across the country.

This includes the Brighton show and two dates at London’s historic Royal Albert Hall.
