How to get Keane tickets for their 20th anniversary tour as tickets go live
Keane are celebrating 20 years of their debut album, Hopes And Fears, with a UK and Ireland tour. Here's how you can secure tickets today.
We remember our introduction to Keane fondly; the year was 2013, and the John Lewis Christmas advert, featuring Lily Allen's cover of Somewhere Only We Know, had just landed on our televisions. We immediately searched the original version of the song, and our Keane fandom began then.
Keane are celebrating 20 years of their debut album, Hopes And Fears, and, luckily for Keane fans, the English rock band have decided to mark the occasion with a UK and Ireland tour. The 2004 album was named the Sound of 2004 by the BBC, it topped the UK Albums Chart, became the second best-selling record of the year, and earned Keane a BRIT award. Amongst the timeless track Somewhere Only We Know, the band's debut album also produced tracks like Everybody's Changing and This Is The Last Time.
Following Hopes And Fears' acclaim and a tour with Irish rock band U2, Keane released their next studio album: Under The Iron Sea. The 2006 sophomore album featured sing-a-long hits Is It Any Wonder and Nothing In My Way. To no one's surprise, Keane's second album topped the UK charts and peaked at an impressive number four in America.
Keane's most recent album was Cause And Effect, and the band — which is made up of Tom Chaplin, Tim Rice-Oxley, Richard Hughes, and Jesse Quinn — could be seen at British Summer Time and Isle of Wight festivals, just to name a few, over the past few years.
