Keane marks 20 years since their debut album, ‘Hopes and Fears,’ with a remastered release and an expansive world tour. They’re taking over Co-op Live in Manchester as part of a limited six-date UK arena tour. The band hits the stage on Sunday 5th May 2024, offering a night filled with nostalgia and emotionally charged anthems.
Since breaking onto the scene two decades ago, Keane carved out a unique place in music history with their keyboard-centric sound and deeply emotive lyricism. They came up in the ranks alongside acts like Snow Patrol, Scissor Sisters, The Killers, and Coldplay, but established their own signature, drawing fans into a sonic realm where every note carries weight.
Celebrating its 9x platinum status in the UK and over 10 million copies sold worldwide, ‘Hopes and Fears’ featured hits like ‘Somewhere Only We Know’—a track that has been streamed over a billion times, recently gaining a new lease on life thanks to its viral resurgence on TikTok. The Manchester date promises a tour through Keane’s entire catalog, from their acclaimed debut to their latest studio offering, ‘Cause and Effect.’
Lead singer Tom Chaplin and founding member Tim Rice-Oxley encapsulate the gravitas of the band’s journey: from humble pub gigs to arena-filled spectacles, Keane’s music continues to resonate on a profound level.
Supporting acts for the tour include The Sherlocks and The Lathums, making the event a full-scale UK music celebration. General sale tickets go live on 15 September.
