Keane has announced dates as part of Forest Live, the summer concert series presented by Forestry England.
After a six-year hiatus, the band made a long overdue return in 2019 with their latest studio album ‘Cause and Effect’ and a triumphant sold-out UK tour. This release follows on from a succession of previous No 1 albums that have accumulated over 13 million sales worldwide: Under The Iron Sea, Perfect Symmetry, Night Train, Strangeland and the seminal debut smash, Hopes and Fears.
Generating hit singles Somewhere Only We Know, Everybody’s Changing, This Is The Last Time and Bedshaped, this recording became one of the biggest selling albums in UK chart history and secured Keane’s place as one of Britain’s best-loved bands. Keane last appeared as part of Forest Live in 2010.
Keane is a beloved English rock band originating from Battle, East Sussex comprised of Tim Rice-Oxley (composer and pianist), Tom Chaplin (lead vocals), Richard Hughes (drummer) and Jesse Quin (bassist). By 2013, Keane had released four full length LPs all reaching number 1 in the UK album charts and sold 12 million albums worldwide. Hopes and Fears, their debut, had entered the list of the 40 best-selling albums in the UK of all time, and they had toured more than 40 countries. After 15 years, and having been friends since childhood, the band were just about ready to call it a day and in 2013 they bowed out with a show in Berlin that felt like an ending - and then everything went quiet on the Keane front. After releasing two solo albums, Tom realised there was something missing from his life - a relationship that was so pivotal, it felt like family. He realised he longed to see Tim again, so they met up, only for Tim to reveal that he had been working on some new material for what he had planned to be a solo album. 'It felt like a story that I could help articulate'. And so the band reconvened, all four of them excited to realise they could make something powerful together, something new. In 2019 Keane announced they would be touring again for the first time in six years.
