Keane announce UK and Ireland ‘club’ shows and ticket details

Band to play indoor dates around summer forest tour

Keane have announced a series of indoor shows around their UK summer forest tour.

Along with the sold out outdoor dates, the band will play a host of “club” gigs.

“The forest shows we’re playing in June will be big, glorious singalongs, but we wanted to play some more sweaty and intimate gigs along the way,” said keyboard player Tim Rice-Oxley.

He added: “We figured out the other day that we haven’t played in Birmingham since February 2007. Birmingham was one of the first cities to really embrace Keane – in fact, we think it was the scene of our first sold out show – so it’s about time we got back there.”

Keane‘s indoor shows are:

London Roundhouse (June 15)
Birmingham O2 Academy (16)
Glasgow Barrowlands (21)
Dublin Olympia (23)
