Club dates announced amidst forest shows
After selling out their entire six-date June 2010 forest tour, Keane have announced plans to intersperse the tour with shows at club venues in London, Birmingham, Glasgow and Dublin.

Says Tim: “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.”  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.”

The dates are as follows:

15th June – The Roundhouse, London
16th June – Academy, Birmingham
21st June – Barrowlands, Glasgow
23rd June – Olympia, Dublin

Tickets for the new shows will go on sale at 9.30am on Wednesday April 14th, via a pre-sale on the official website,
