Keane aim for fifth number one album with exclusive March 2012 Bexhill bash - tickets on sale Saturday 21st Jan
Often unfairly derided for writing proper pop-songs and sporting a pianist with a double-barrelled name (honestly, some people are so bitter), Keane have poured hot water on critical scorn by clocking up no less than four successive #1 albums in the space of just six years - in any language, that's a considerable achievement which translates as 10 million sales.
Boring stats aside, Keane have consistently chalked up hits, many of which came from their 2004 debut album "Hopes and Fears", including "Somewhere Only We Know" and "Everybody's Changing", both perfectly (though unintentionally) created to soundtrack just about every TV documentary and regional radio-station's playlist. Inoffensive, anthemic, uplifting, melancholic and several other superlatives have been used to describe the trio's resurgence with every new album. Even the last opus, "Night Train" (mini-album), a curious melange of typical pop, hip-hop and even a cover of a Japanese hit-song, hit number one with ease.
The big question is - can they make it five in a row? To find out, you'll need to head to the South Coast on 9th March for a very special show in honour of the finished recording-sessions! Keane will play Bexhill-on-Sea's iconic De La Warr Pavillion with the sole intention of unveiling the new songs and wheeling out a few favourites as well.
We will have tickets for this exclusive one-off from Saturday morning from 10am onwards. We imagine that even at £25 each, they'll be sold out by 10:03. The band are also expected to unveil further shows in due course!
